Everyone has their favourite spicy chicken wings recipe, but I can assure you that this one will be tough to top!

Numerous recipes have emerged on the scene ever since Buffalo chicken wings became popular and appeared on bar menus and Sunday sports feasts.

Chicken wings have established themselves as a distinct culinary genre, ranging from hot and spicy to sweet and saucy and deep-fried to oven-baked.

Returning to the fundamentals is sometimes beneficial, which is why I have created this recipe.

Even though these chicken wings are not as healthy as the baked chicken wings recipe, they taste amazing. What I tend to do is consume less to balance out the calories.

Are chicken wings healthy?

Chicken wings are actually more nutritious than you thought. Instead of considering chicken wings to be unhealthy, consider how nutritious they are. Vitamins A, B6, and B12 are abundant in chicken wings. Other minerals include calcium, iron, and zinc. They are therefore essential for your health.

What kinds of chicken wings are there?

Drums, or drumettes, have a single major bone that runs through the centre and resembles miniature chicken legs. Flats, also known as wingettes, receive their name from the fact that they are, well, flat.

Are wings better baked or fried?

Compared to other popular chicken cuts, chicken wings have a higher skin-to-meat ratio. That is why they have such rich flavours.

The subtle flavour of the skin is lost when they are deep-fried, however, they do get crispy. On the other hand, roasting caramelises the skin and renders the fat, resulting in a more flavourful flavour.

Do chicken wings come from baby chickens?

The chicken wings we eat are not from baby chickens; rather, they are from adult chickens that are incapable of flying.

What are buffalo chicken wings?

An unbreaded chicken wing known as a “Buffalo wing” in American cuisine is typically deep-fried before being dipped or coated with a sauce made of melted butter, cayenne pepper hot sauce, and vinegar.

Traditionally, they are served hot with celery and carrot sticks dipped in blue cheese dressing.

  • In a large bowl add the marinade ingredients to the chicken wings then mix until all the wings are evenly coated (See note 1)
  • Once the chicken has marinated then heat a pan with oil for deep frying until hot then gently add the chicken wings and fry for 6-8 minutes until crispy and golden brown (See note 2)
  • Once all the chicken wings have been fried set aside, as you prepare the sauce.
  • In a pan heat up the olive oil on medium heat until hot before adding the crushed chillies and garlic paste then sauté for 1-2 minutes
  • Add the chilli sauce and tomato ketchup then cook for a further 1-2 minutes
  • Add the fried chicken wings then mix until all the chicken wings are evenly coated with the sauce.
  • Serve with a side of French fries and enjoy!



Note 1 – Chicken wings with the skin are best for any fried chicken recipe as it allows for that extra crispiness. It also adds flavour and keeps the chicken moist during the cooking process.
Note 2 – It is best to marinate the chicken wings for as long as possible as it allows for maximum flavour to develop, overnight is preferable. However, if you are short on time then you can fry straight away.
