TIPS FOR THE BEST RESULTS

Double or triple fry the wings. To keep the batter crisp for longer, cook the wings until 80% golden and let it drip dry in a colander. Bring the heat up to fry again until completely golden. You can repeat this for a triple fry.

Coat the wings when they’re still hot. The sauce will seep into the coating much better with a warmer temperature.

Marinate the chicken for longer. Ideally overnight, but the longer you marinate, the better because then every drop of sauce and bit of seasoning penetrates deeper into the chicken.

FAQS

What can I use if I don’t have corn starch?

There are many substitutes for corn starch, but the one that is often used for the most similar result is potato starch. If that’s not available then arrowroot flour, tapioca flour or rice flour will also work.

Yes, you can! Canh Ga Chien Nuoc Mam needs to be given time to cool down and then just put them in a freeze-safe sealed bag or container. They will last for up to 4 months. To cook, simply refry and make the sauce to coat.
