From films to night markets with street food, practically everything tells us just how well-loved fried chicken is. A number of shows I’ve watched have had characters enjoying that delicious crunch, tempting viewers like me to dial the phone and have some delivered to my doorstep. But here at Panlasang Pinoy, we teach you how to go the affordable and fun route, and create some Crispy Garlic Fried Chicken Wings, yourself!

Crispy Garlic Fried Chicken Wings 

This recipe is one I really made for people who are not all that familiar with the kitchen yet. With this, we can show beginner cooks that everyone can make great fried chicken wings! But what is it that makes fried chicken go past good and truly turn great?

In my opinion, a lot of it lies in the marinade– the key factor in flavor for our dish! That’s why we integrate plenty of garlic powder, as well as actual garlic. Seasonings like these help the white meat adopt a bit of spice while boosting its savory factor.

Another special component to this dish is the thick white sauce we use to make our chicken more flavorful. This is a smooth, somewhat sour and salty component you will want to dip into again and again!

Ingredients in Crispy Garlic Fried Chicken Wings

Heads up that we’ll be needing quite a lot of food to get our chicken wings perfect. Let’s take a look!

  • Chicken wings – We love the wing part because it truly is more flavorful! But feel free to substitute this with other parts of the chicken if you prefer it with less bones.
  • Egg – Great for our breading and making sure the flour and cornstarch stick!
  • Cornstarch – This helps make the exterior crunchier while keeping the chicken from getting too oily.
  • All-purpose flour – For just a light crunch!
  • Cooking oil – We can’t fry chicken without this! But there are plenty of alternatives in case you don’t have this onhand. These include bacon grease, and even bananas and apple sauce!

Marinade Ingredients

  • Garlic powder – Like I said earlier, this gives the food that extra boost of flavor and saltiness.
  • Onion powder – To add some richness!
  • Paprika – For some smokiness and a brown color.
  • Garlic – This wouldn’t be a garlic recipe without the versatile veggie!
  • Ground white pepper – A great seasoning for some added earthiness.
  • Salt – We want that signature savor in our dish!
  • Soy sauce – To help with the salty flavor of the marinade.

White Sauce Ingredients

  • Mayonnaise – This gives our sauce the creamy, thick texture we want.
  • Sour cream – A staple addition to most sauces, sour cream is also the way to go for our chicken!
  • Dill – For a slight sweetness, we will also incorporate dill.
  • Parsley – A bit of this goes a long way in adding some earthiness!
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Kosher salt – We can get just the right amount if savor with added kosher salt.
  • Ground black pepper – And for a stronger taste, black pepper is something we will need to sprinkle onto the sauce.
  • Lime – For a delightful zestiness!

How to Make Crispy Garlic Fried Chicken Wings

To create some yummy chicken wings, we will utilize a wok, as well as our refrigerator for marinating. Get started on this with me!

Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl

Toss these into a container, and add your chicken. Mix everything together. Don’t leave out any part of the chicken as you are coating this.

Then just put the container in the fridge, and let the chicken marinate for a minimum of 1 hour.

Make the ranch sauce

Combine the ingredients for this in a bowl, and mix. Set this aside once you’re done mixing thoroughly.

Combine the breading ingredients and coat the chicken

We will just put the cornstarch and flour inside gradually.

Crack an egg then mix with the chicken.

Fry the chicken wings

Place 2 cups of cooking oil in your wok. Apply heat
Let the temperature get to 350 °F, and then put your chicken wings inside one at a time.

Set the heat on medium, and fry the chicken for 8 to 10 minutes or until it becomes golden brown.

Take the chicken out.

Let the wings rest, and then double fry it

Wait for the chicken to get cooler for 10 to 12 minutes.

We must work on our chicken again by putting them back in the wok.

Fry them for 1 minute. This step will make the chicken extra crispy.

Serve with ranch sauce

And that’s it! Just put the chicken on a serving plate and serve it with ranch sauce .
