How to Fry Chicken Wings Extra Tender
Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 30 mins Total time: 40 mins Serves: 6
Servings 4 servings
- 2 lbs chicken wings (organic or free range preferred)
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 garlic cloves (pressed)
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp dry dill
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
In a large bowl, combine all the seasonings, add chicken wings and mix by hand ensuring even coating.
Transfer the wings to a suitable size Ziploc bag. Refrigerate for at least half an hour. Marinating up to 24 hours is perfectly acceptable and will only be beneficial.
Preheat a large frying pan. Sear chicken wings on both sides over high heat for about one and a half to two minutes per side.
Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid leaving a small crack, and continue cooking for about 20 minutes until the meat is tender. Flip the wings twice or three times during cooking.
