Garlic butter sauce:


  • 1 red chili pepper sliced for garnish
  • 3 tbsp green onion


  • Add your chicken wings into a large mixing bowl along with fish sauce, soy sauce and lime juice. Mix and marinate for 20 minutes, no more.
  • In another bowl, whisk together ingredients for garlic butter sauce.
  • Generously coat each wing (make sure the wing is moist from the marinade to ensure the starch sticks better) in potato starch. Press the starch into the wing.
  • Heat a wok or large pot over medium high heat (at 350 degrees F) and add avocado oil. Once the oil has reached 350 degrees F, carefully lower each wing into the oil. Fry the wings in two batches to prevent undercooked or non-crispy wings.
  • Deep fry wings on both sides for a total of 7-8 minutes until golden crispy brown. Remove wings from hot oil and place into a large mixing bowl.
  • While wings are still hot, pour garlic butter sauce over wings along with green onions and red chili. Mix and coat each wing in sauce. Serve hot and enjoy!
