In a large frying pan or skillet, heat the oil until it shimmers or is about 180 degrees Celcius.
Toss the marinated salt and pepper chicken wings in the potato starch to get the coating for crisp. Shake the excessive potato starch and drop them in the hot oil one by one.
Cook for 5 minutes till the bottom part becomes golden brown. Then flip the chicken over and cook for another 5 minutes to get the perfect golden brown colour.
Once all of them are fried in the same manner, it's time to add some spices. Heat the skillet at medium temperature and pour some butter, and let it melt. After that, add sliced chillies and garlic and frequently stir to get the chillies perfectly brown. This will take 1 to 2 minutes.
Put the fried chicken on the serving plate and pour the fried chilies and garlic over the top. Sprinkle some white pepper and pepper salt. Serve and enjoy your salt and pepper chicken wings!
Make sure to cover and refrigerate the bowl during marination.
When frying, do not overcrowd the frying pan or skillet. You can fit at least 5 to 7 chickens at a time, so plan to cook them in 2 to 3 batches.
