Deep-fried Chicken Wings in Oyster Sauce

Okay so you can't have these more than once every couple of months, but these little fuckers are a proper discovery once you've bought the right oyster sauce. You  have to use Lee Kum Kee brand and definitely not Sharwood's or anything like that as they will just taste of shit you'll say I'm a crap cook. You can buy it a most supermarkets in the 'World Food' isle or just do the right thing and spend an afternoon in your local Chinese supermarket. (Pick up some frozen char siu buns also).

1 KG chicken wings, chopped into 3 (discard the tips)
vegetable oil for deep-frying
225ml/8fl oz/1 cup oyster sauce 
2 tablespoons groundnut oil

Deep-fry the chicken wings in hot vegetable oil for 10-20 minutes until they are crisp and brown. 

Remove, drain of oil, and then transfer them to a separate frying pan.

Mix together the oyster sauce and groundnut oil, and mix well.  

Pour this mixture over the chicken wings and mix well in the frying pan over a low heat until all the wings are well covered with sauce and are heated through.

Serve immediately as a starter.
