My New Favorite Chicken Wing Recipe

My kids have this unnatural fascination with chicken wings that I can't really fathom. They just adore them. This recipe sort of evolved over the years with various kids "helping" me in the kitchen. Prep time includes the 1 hour that the chicken hangs out in the fridge.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up the chicken wings at the joint so you have 24 pieces.
  2. Mix the egg, margarine, hot sauce, salt, sugar, and paprika.
  3. Coat the chicken wings in this mixture, then refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Remove from the fridge and add the water, flour, baking soda and cornstarch.
  5. Mix well and make sure each piece is coated.
  6. Heat the oil in large frying pan.
  7. Fry 5 to 6 pieces at a time until brown, turning a few times.
  8. Drain on a paper towel.
  9. The wings are now ready to serve.

Thank you for posting this recipe! The texture of the coating was so different than anything I've ever tried with chicken wings, but they fried perfectly! Next time I will probably double the salt, just for my own taste, and maybe increase the hot sauce, as well. Thanks for sharing, Mirj!
