With a combination of white and dark meat, chicken wings make a tasty finger food that is perfect for game night or as a meal starter. Deep-frying seals moisture into the meat and makes quick work of preparing the wings. While you can deep-fry wings without breading and serve them with your favorite sauce, adding a breaded coating doesn’t require a lot of time or ingredients, and it makes an appetizing variation that your family and friends will enjoy.

Preparation

Step 1

Set the deep fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, or to the "Poultry" setting.

Step 2

Cut each chicken wing at both joints. This will give you a wing section and a “drumette” section from each wing. It will also give you two dozen wing tips, which you may save to make a broth or discard.

Step 3

Rinse the 48 remaining wing sections under the faucet, and drain them on paper towels to remove excess water.

Bread the Wings

Step 1

Combine the flour and spices in a gallon-size zip-type plastic bag, and shake gently to mix.

Step 2

Add the chicken wing sections, about 10 at a time, to the flour mixture in the bag.

Step 3

Seal the zip lock, and tumble the bag back and forth to coat the wings evenly.

Step 4

Remove the wings from the flour mixture and shake off excess flour. Repeat until all of the wings have a thin flour coating on their outsides.

Step 5

Double-coat the wings, if desired. If you want a thicker breading, dip each flour-coated wing into a cup of milk and place it back into the seasoned flour bag. Repeat the shaking/tumbling process until all of the wings are double coated.

Deep Fry the Wings

Step 1

Place six to eight wing sections into the hot oil of the deep fryer. The wings will immediately begin to sizzle.

Step 2

Cook the wings for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they rise to the surface and are golden in color.

Step 3

Remove them from the fryer with tongs, and let the wings drain and cool slightly on paper towels.

Step 4

Repeat until all of the wings are fried.

Step 5

Keep the cooked wings warm until you finish frying all of them by placing them on a paper towel-lined cookie sheet in a 200-degree Fahrenheit oven, if desired.
