Sticky, crunchy, garlicky, intensely-flavored, Hawaiian chicken wings. Garnish with additional green onion slices or green onion curls, if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 pounds small chicken wings
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups coconut oil

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine soy sauce, sugar, green onions, garlic, toasted sesame seeds, rice vinegar, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and continue to boil briefly, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.
  2. 2 Pat chicken dry. Place flour in a shallow dish; dip chicken wings into flour, coating thoroughly. Shake off excess and set aside on a plate.
  3. 3 Heat coconut oil over medium heat in a wok or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lower 5 to 6 wings one at a time into the hot oil using tongs or a slotted spoon, making sure not to overcrowd or splash hot oil. Cook the wings until browned, crispy, and no longer pink in the centers, 7 to 8 minutes per side.
  4. 4 Transfer cooked wings to the saucepan using tongs; coat wings in sauce and let soak for 3 to 4 minutes. Continue working in batches until all chicken is fried and soaked in sauce. Transfer sauced wings to a plate to drain excess. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Chef's Notes

You can substitute potato starch for flour. You can use any oil with a high smoke point instead of coconut oil, if desired.


  1. Perfect as written and a nice change from buffalo wings!
