Anyone who truly knows me will know that chicken wings are the key to my heart! I wanted to share my favorite recipe for crispy, yet healthy chicken wings.
Disclaimer: if you have some unwanted opinion that these wings aren’t that healthy, don’t ruin my fantasy- LOL.
I’m a millennial, we aren’t too fond of that.
If you’re wondering what makes this recipe my favorite for wings rather than the OG fried version is because of the lack of fat from frying and let’s just be honest, frying chicken to the perfect texture and crispiness is hard for some. Two of my top culinary tricks are fully ensuring that any moisture on the chicken parts has evaporated by pat drying and using baking powder (you’ll have to believe me here) Ensuring that the chicken is dry allows any moisture to evaporate and will prevent the chicken from crisping up and losing flavor. The baking powder is the hot girl of the recipe it draws out all extra moisture in the surface of the chicken parts’ skin. This will create the crunch we all love when biting into fresh, hot fried chicken.
I hope you enjoy!
