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

1.5 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tbsp cooking oil

- Marinate the chicken wings with marinade for several hours or overnight to be flavorful.
- 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.
- 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].
