First, wash the chicken wings, and drain them thoroughly. Mix the chicken with the salt, pepper, and ginger. Marinate them for 20 to 30 minutes.
Second, heat a pan over medium low heat. Add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, then the onions, garlic, and ginger. Stir for a minute until everything starts to smell good. Add all the other sauce ingredients and stir everything well. Simmer the mixture until it thickens slightly, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the heat off.
Next, remove the remaining water from the marinated chicken. Add the potato starch to the chicken and toss well to coat evenly.
Then, add the oil to a large pot. Heat the oil to 320°F. Using tongs and carefully drop the chicken in the oil, one piece at a time. Fry them in two batches. The chicken should be cook until they become lightly golden. Remove them with a wire skimmer or a slotted spoon. Drain the chicken in a large mesh strainer set on a bowl. Repeat this same step for the second batch of chicken.
