Chicken Wings coated in JFC Frickin Good Chicken Breading before being deep-fried at 350 F for about 10 -12 minutes. Serve these up with various dips and sides.
Side Tidbit: Did you know that Colonel Sander’s favorite Chicken piece was the Wing.
Pick up your wings when they are on sale. In my area, they go for 2.99 and occasionally go for 1.99 per lb, rarely but it does happen at .99 an lb.
Your Local Cash & Carry will have these by the Box full which are usually cheaper than buying a few lbs here and there.
Depending on size, there are about 12 – 14 pieces in 1 lb on avg.
The wings are significantly smaller than full pieces of chicken. Because of this, you don’t really have to season the wings or marinate. Although you could if you wanted to and there are a few options in the Marinade section below.
Water is all that is really needed. Just dip the Wings in water before coating with JFC Breading. You can add some salt to the wings to add some seasoning. This is what I do using the Salt & Wash method below.
Salt & Wash
Use 1 tsp of Kosher Salt for every 1 lb of Chicken wings. Mix well and refrigerate for 1 hour. After which wash the wings with water before breading or wash the wings and strain, then place into the Egg wash below.
Use 1 Egg & 3 Tablespoons of water.
First, whisk the eggs until fluffy. Then whisk the mixture again with the added water. Add the Wings and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to bread.
Another Option is to marinate the wings in the following.
- 1/2 C Water
- 1 Chicken Maggi Bouillon Cube
- 1/2 tsp MSG
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Marinate in the fridge for an hour. Then move the chicken from the marinate straight to the JFC Breading.
The Breading used is JFC Frickin Good Chicken Breading. This is used for the main breading of the wings right before they go into the deep fryer.
With this method, a Pouch of JFC Frickin Good Chicken Breading will coat about 4 lbs of Chicken wings. Less if you are double breading.
For double breaded wings, dip the breaded wings in water and bread again before deep frying.
Once the wings are coated and the deep fryer is at 350 F. The Wings go in to cook for 10 -12 minutes. I do 2 lb at a time, 1 lb per basket.
Give it a bit of a shake when they go into the oil to separate them a bit and ensure that each wing gets coated in the hot oil immediately before the breading starts to crisp.
Serve the Chicken Wings with some dipping sauce!
- Pappy BBQ Sauce or toss the wings in a bit of the BBQ Sauce
- Melted Buffalo Wing Sauce
- Ranch Dressing
- Blue Cheese Dip
- Honey Mustard
- Mild Mayo Sauce
- Or Sour cream with a small amount of BBQ Sauce
