If you watch Rick and Morty then I really don’t need to explain what this sauce is, and luckily for you, it won’t take 9 more seasons to get your hands on it. This sauce is my recreation of the original 1998 McDonalds Szechuan dipping sauce, and I’ve stayed pretty true to the original ingredients. This is a chicken wing recipe, but feel free to just make the sauce and dip to your hearts content!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 500 g chicken wings
- 1/2 cup Flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp Chinese five spice
- Vegetable oil (for shallow frying)
Mulan Szechuan Sauce
- 2 tsp garlic, minced
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp mirin
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 3 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- Clean the chicken and remove the tip of the wing. Set aside.
- In a deep frying pan (preferably a large one), heat enough vegetable oil to shallow fry the chicken wings on medium heat.
- Place flour on a flat plate or dish and season with salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, and Chinese five spice. Place the panko on another flat dish, and, in a bowl, beat the two eggs.
- Take chicken wings and dust them in the seasoned flour. Place wings in the beaten egg, making sure to coat well, and then immediately place in panko. Cover the wings well with panko and then set to the side.
- In the heated oil, place as many wings as you can fit comfortably and remember not to crowd the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, flip the wings and then cook for another 5 minutes. Remove them from the oil and place on a wire rack or a tray lined with paper towels. Continue to cook the rest of the wings as needed.
- In another pan on medium heat, add sesame oil and garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and combine well. Cook on low heat until the sauce has reduced but is still runny.
- Place the cooked wings in the pan and coat thoroughly in the sauce.
- Serve with fries and enjoy this delicious blast to the past!
