Fried Wings (makes 24 wings)

I don't eat a whole lot of fried foods but I do like to eat these Fried Wings once in a great while. I am not too fond of wings dripping with sauce. Most of the time I find the BBQ sauce or Buffalo wing sauce too overwhelming for my taste buds. I prefer my wings with as little sauce as possible. Here is a simple wing recipe. Feel free to smother them in your favorite sauce or dipping if interested!

My eldest maternal aunt, whom I called Tùa Ý makes her delicious fried wings simply with just salt and ground black pepper. To me they are simple but very tasty.

Fried Wings
Fried Wings (makes 24 wings)

Ingredients:

24 chicken wings (about 3 lbs), separated the wings (by cutting at the joint), trimmed off fat and excess skin, washed, patted dried with paper towels
1/3 cup of store-bought Cajun Fish Fry Flour*
Oil for deep frying

Method:

Coat the wings with flour. Heat oil to around 350-360 degrees Fahrenheit and then deep fry the wings for about 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.

*The Fry Krisp Company makes the Cajun Fish Fry Flour. It is a mixture of corn flour, corn meal, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and a few other spices. The idea is to coat the wings with flour and then deep fry them. I used a plastic bag, add the wings and flour and shake a few times to help coat all the wings evenly. During frying I cover my pot with a splatter guard to help prevent spattering. If you dry the wings well then there will be less oil spattering.
