Delicious Homemade Fried Chicken Wingettes Recipe

The smaller cut portion of a chicken wing, often colloquially called a chicken wingette readily locks in lots and lots of flavor when adequately seasoned. A large tray of raw chicken wingettes can be purchased for as low as $7 in area supermarkets. For this delicious homemade fried chicken wingettes recipe, you can purchase one of these trays of raw chicken wingettes found in the raw meat section of the supermarket.

  • When you arrive in your kitchen at home, remove the raw chicken wingettes from the packaging, place them in a bowl, wash them well and drain them. In addition to water, washing poultry with some lemon or lime juice and/ or vinegar is also helpful for achieving a fresh and delicious taste when the poultry is fully cooked.
  • After washing the raw chicken wingettes well and patting them dry with paper towels, discard the paper towels, wash and dry your hands well with antibacterial soap and get ready to remove you needed spices from the cupboard or pantry. For this homemade fried chicken wingettes, recipe you can really use the spices that you have on hand without the need to pick up anything else that is too specific in the grocery story. For this homemade fried chicken wingettes recipe, I seasoned the washed raw chicken wingettes generously with salt and garlic powder as well as a little crushed red pepper. You can do a rub, rubbing the seasonings well into the chicken skin and then wash your hands again or do this with gloves on. After the chicken wingettes look visibly well seasoned, set them aside on the counter or place them in the refrigerator.
  • The next thing that needs to be done for this delicious homemade fried chicken wingettes recipe is taking a clean large pot to the stove top and pouring into it enough canola oil to cover the chicken wingettes.
  • Then, get three bowls. Crack three raw eggs into the first bowl and stir well, pour one cup of whole milk into the second bowl, and pour a cup and a half of white baking flour into the third bowl. One important tip is that if desired, you can season the bowl of flour itself to add even extra flavor. Try sprinkling a dash of the garlic powder as well as some oregano flakes and a dash of black pepper powder into the bowl of flour and stirring.
  • Those three bowls of eggs, milk and flour will be used for creating the frying batter. Now is a good time to start heating the oil in the large pot on the stove on medium heat. The large size of the pot is good especially for safety and to avoid the splattering of hot oil.
  • Get the chicken wingettes and dip each one first into the bowl of eggs, then into the milk and then into the bowl containing the flour. A coating of frying batter will form on top of the chicken skin. If desired, you can do two coats by dipping each chicken wingette twice into the three bowls.
  • As soon as each chicken wingette has been fully coated in egg, milk and flour, gently place it into the large pot that is heating with oil. Arrange the dipped chicken wingettes on at a time to cover the whole circumference of the large pot. The chicken wingettes should be covered or nearly covered in the oil, well submerged. Allow the chicken wingettes to fry, cooking well. During the cooking process for chicken, a good indicator that it is becoming fully cooked is to be sure that there is no pink left in the poultry.
  • Have a spatula ready on hand to turn the chicken wingettes over after several minutes as needed to avoid scorching or burning. Throughout the cooking process, expect to flip the chicken wingettes over with the spatula a few times before they are fully cooked. When they are fully cooked, you will remove them from the pot with the spatula and allow them to drain on some paper towels. From the time the chicken wingettes are added to the pot of heating oil to the time they are fully cooked and ready to be removed from the pot will generally be about twenty five to thirty minutes in total with turning the chicken wingettes over at five to no more than ten minute intervals. This is when working with medium heat instead of high heated oil.

These delicious homemade fried chicken wingettes are so succulent and flavorful, You do not need to add anything to them. Nevertheless, if you so desire, you can select from a variety of dipping sauces such as ketchup, blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing. You can serve your delicious homemade fried chicken wingettes at a party, on a tray with lemon wedges or lime wedges. You can sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on top of them. There are many possibilities for these chicken wingettes.

Enjoy these delicious homemade fried chicken wingettes!

      Hi peachy, thanks so much for posting a comment to this hub about homemade fried chicken wings. In the photos, the chicken wings do indeed look a bit wet on the paper towels because of the oil draining out of them. The paper towels work great for absorbing the extra oil.
