Try this way of cooking chicken wings with shallots, it is simply easy and quick.  Here, you would  noticed lots of shallots are used.  Shallots give the dish a sweet and mild flavour.  The fried chicken wings are braised to tender and succulent.  It is a dish that you can serve as a main dish with  rice and maybe with a vegetable dish.  The thick, tasty gravy is great to spread over rice.
This is a Guangdong cuisine.  You can use chicken drumsticks to make this dish.
Recipe adapted from Ms Ma's Kitchen you-tube video with  slight modifications
[serves 2-3]
8 pieces chicken wings - end tip removed and cut into 3 pieces
1 tbsp cooking wine
1 tsp sesame seed oil
some chopped spring onions
120-150 gm shallots - peeled and keep whole
1.5 tbsp light soy sauce and oyster sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1.5 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tbsp cooking oil
several slices of ginger

  1. Marinate the chicken wings with marinade for several hours or overnight to be flavorful.   
  2. Heat up a non stick wok with some oil, place chicken wings in a single layer to fry until brown on all sides by turning them constantly.  Add in shallots, stir fry for 1-2 minutes until aromatic.
  3. Transfer to a claypot, add in cooking wine and some water.  Mix well, cover to cook for 20 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning at the base [alternatively you can cook the chicken wings in the wok instead of transfering to cook in claypot].
  4. Drizzle in sesame seed oil, garnish with some spring onions.  Serve with rice.
