I love chicken wings.. they are great.. great indeed.. the best ones we have ever had are in Douglas Cork.. in the east village.. ok for sure the provenance of the meat might not be the most ‘faithful’.. yet their coating and insanely hot sauce is just acid giving joy x
Here’s my good pal Jack Taylor’s take on wings.. and good on ya Jack.. freezer finds are cool! X
When I was rummaging in the freezer yesterday for the lamb chops I noticed some chicken wings that I got from Central Oriental supermarket a few weeks ago and decided that I would have a taste of the deep South today. So got them out and defrosted them on the magic trays. They really are magic!
Found a recipe on the Internet that I hadn’t tried before. It asked for buttermilk which I didn’t have so substituted with milk and some lemon juice.
Soaked the wings in some iced and salted water for about 30 mins in the fridge, drained and rinsed them then put back in bowl with the milk and lemon juice. Covered in the fridge for about 2 hours.
In the meantime I made the seasoned flour, mixing plain flour, corn meal, cayenne, salt, pepper, some garlic powder and cornflour in a plastic bag. Shook it all about a bit and left it till ready to fry.
When I was ready I whisked an egg with some milk. Fired up the wok and brought some oil up to 170.
To bread the wings I drained them from the lemon milk and dipped them in the flour, then the egg mix and back to flour and shook it all about. Fried in batches for between 8 and 10 minutes.
Repeat until they are all fried.
Needed more salt in flour. Would I make them again. Definitely but adjust seasoning and maybe try baking them. Got a few still in freezer.
Watch this space!!!!
Nice on Jack nice one x
