Crispy Fried Chicken Wings Recipe: A Culinary Delight


Welcome to our kitchen, where culinary excellence meets the irresistible crunch of Crispy Fried Chicken Wings. In this detailed guide, we’ll walk you through a tantalizing journey, sharing the secret measurements of ingredients to ensure your homemade chicken wings stand out and leave your taste buds craving for more.


For the Marinade:

  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Coating:

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Marinating the Chicken Wings

Begin by placing the chicken wings in a large bowl. Pour the buttermilk over them, ensuring each wing is thoroughly coated. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well, cover the bowl, and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least four hours or, ideally, overnight for maximum flavor absorption.

2. Preparing the Coating

In a separate bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, and garlic powder. This will be the secret concoction that guarantees an extra crispy exterior on your wings.

3. Coating and Frying

Once the wings have marinated, preheat your oil to 375°F (190°C). Take each wing, allowing excess buttermilk to drip off, and generously coat them in the prepared flour mixture. Ensure an even coating for that perfect crunch.

Gently place the coated wings in the hot oil, frying in batches for approximately 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the wings to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.

Serving Suggestions

Serve your Crispy Fried Chicken Wings hot and golden, paired with your favorite dipping sauces like ranch, blue cheese, or a zesty buffalo sauce. Whether it’s a game day snack or a star dish at your next gathering, these wings are sure to steal the show.
