"When it comes to hosting, it comes in handy to have a secret recipe. That one legendary dish that becomes infamous, a dish that no-one will pass on your invite."
You can’t have a great party without great food, right? So having a repertoire of crowd-pleasing recipes on hand is important for a successful party. And it’s important to have one legendary dish that will have your guests clamoring for more. These fried chicken wings are are my go-to recipe at barbecues and parties, not just because I love them, but all my guests love them, too. When my friends and family know I’m serving these wings, they never pass up the invitation to come over and celebrate. That’s how good they are.
For this recipe you’ll need a fryer, and I always use the Emeril by T-fal deep fryer. It’s one of the most awesome gifts Chrissy has ever bought me. It fries up the best party wings you can imagine.
Because of the cayenne pepper, these wings are on the spicy side, (you can adjust the spice accordingly).
Fried Chicken Wings
Put the chicken and the brine ingredients in a large pot or bowl. Cover the bowl and brine the chicken 6-12 hours.
Fill the fryer (I use the Emeril by T-fal deep fryer) to the max line with canola oil. This requires just under a gallon of oil. Heat to 356 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the fryer is ready, bread the chicken. To prepare the breading, simply put all the breading ingredients in a large ziploc bag. Then put each batch of chicken wings in the bag and shake it up until the wings are amply covered in flour.
Fry the chicken in one gallon of canola oil at 356 degrees Fahrenheit until a nice golden brown.
