Crispy Wings

As big sports fan, Josh and I always love having wings for game day food. Wings can be served with different sauces and seasonings, depending what you are craving more. Now that I have found the perfect way to make crispy wings, I like to share with you how. Crispy wings is perfect as an appetizer or can be a meal, depending on how you serve it. 

Prep and Cook Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 4 servings

  • 3 lbs chicken wingettes

  • 1 tbsp sea salt

  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper

  • 2/3 cup corn starch

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  • 3-4 cups cooking oil


  1. Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Mix together in a bowl the chicken, salt, black pepper & garlic.

  2. In a separate bowl with the cornstarch, coat each wing evenly one by one. TIP: To get the extra crisp, squeeze each wing to press the coating in tightly.

  3. Once all chicken pieces have been coated, heat up cooking oil (I used Olive Oil) over high heat in a frying pan for about 7-8 minutes. TIP: Test if oil is ready by dipping a wing into it. It is hot enough to start frying if the oil bubbles.

  4. One by one slide the wings into the hot oil and cook for about 10-13 minutes, turning over every 2-3 minutes with tongs to get an even fry. TIP: Do not overcrowd your pan as it will cause uneven frying and temperatures in your pan.

  5. Take wings out of the oil and place in strainer to shake off excess oil. Turn off the heat and let the wings rest for a few minutes.

  6. Reheat the oil and slide the wings into the pan one by one for another 13-15 minutes or until the wings are golden brown and you could feel their crispiness with the tongs.

  7. Take wings out of the oil and place in strainer to shake off excess oil. Toss wings with favorite sauce or have them naked.
