Peri-Peri Chicken Wings Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup olive oil
  • 6 birds eye chilies (siling labuyo) remove seeds if you want less heat
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons whiskey
  • lemon juice from 1 1/2 lemons
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying


  • Make the peri-peri sauce: Combine olive oil, chilies, garlic, paprika, whiskey, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor or blender. Pulse until well combined. Set aside. (This will make about ½ cup peri-peri sauce. Store in a sterilized airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.)
  • Mix potato starch and salt in a large bowl. Dredge chicken thinly in mixture and shake off excess.
  • Heat oil to 350ºF in a large pot. Deep-fry chicken in batches until crisp and golden, about 10 minutes. Drain on a wire rack. When cool enough to handle, place chicken in a bowl, pour in peri-peri sauce, and toss to combine.
  • Serve peri-peri chicken wings with mango salsa and steamed rice. Recipe originally published in the August 2015 issue of Good Housekeeping.
