First up, let’s talk about the ingredients that you’ll need:

Ingredients needed:

CHICKEN WINGS: I like to buy “party wings” these are wings that are already separated into “drums” and “flats”. Of course, you can buy whole chicken wings but you’ll have khổng lồ separate them yourself. Here is a tutorial clip on YouTube showing you how to vì chưng it.


BLACKENING SEASONING: A seasoning blend of paprika, onion, thyme, đen pepper, garlic and oregano. It is similar in taste to lớn Cajun seasoning but Cajun seasoning is a bit spicier. If you’d lượt thích spicier wings, definitely substitute Cajun.

DES’ TIP:Make note of whether or not your seasoning blend has salt. Some blackening and cajun seasonings do while other’s do not. If it does, use slightly less (maybe 1 một nửa tablespoons instead) or omit the seasoned salt from the flour mixture.

EGGS/MILK/HOT SAUCE: Whisk these two together to lớn make a “wash”. This is what you want to dredge the seasoned wings in before you dip them in the flour. This gives the flour something to lớn stick to.

DES’ TIP:The hot sauce is totally optional, just a few dashes will do! It won’t make it a lot spicier but it will give it a little flavor.

ALL PURPOSE FLOUR: to lớn coat the wings.

CORNSTARCH: This is my #1 trick in making perfect deep fried chicken wings. Adding cornstarch khổng lồ the flour helps up the crunch factor by preventing gluten development.

SEASONED SALT: When making fried chicken wings, it’s important lớn season along the way. Even though the wings are seasoned, it creates more flavor if you season the flour as well.

Tips for making deep fried chicken wings:

Tip #1: FRY IN BATCHES. With any fried food, you are going khổng lồ want to fry it in batches. You want to lớn make sure that the food has enough space around it without touching. This helps make sure that the exterior is crisp. If food is too close together, it’ll steam instead of fry & won’t be as crispy.

Tip #2: OIL TEMPERATURE. It is important khổng lồ wait for the oil lớn reach 350 degrees in betweeneach batch. This means frying one batch and waiting for the oil khổng lồ come back up to temperature before frying the next batch.

Tip #3: SEASON THE WINGS WITH SALT IMMEDIATELY AFTER REMOVING FROM THE FRYER. I always season fried food with a sprinkle of salt right after I pull them out of the fryer. It adds more flavor and the salt will adhere better when while the food is hot.


Tip #4: KEEP THEM WARM AND CRISPY. Since you are frying the wings in batches, you’ll want khổng lồ make sure that they stay warm and crispy. To do that, set your oven to lớn the lowest setting (my oven has a “warm” setting). Place a cooling rack on vị trí cao nhất of a baking sheet & place cooked wings on top of the cooling rack & keep in the oven in between batches. By putting them on the cooling rack, it allows the air to circulate around the wing keeping them crispy.
