Oven Fried Wings Recipe
Okay… so first of all, let’s quell some fears here. These are crispy as all crispy. I don’t own a frier (or else everything I ate would likely be fried). But you COULD feel free to fry these instead of putting them in the oven. But it’s honestly not necessary. These oven fried chicken wings crisp up like CRAZY in the oven alone. And it’s ridiculously easy. So if you’re looking for a perfect Father’s Day dinner, these will blow his mind. Fresh, (not frozen) wings make them so plump and delicious, and the flavors are incredible.
But you certainly don’t need the Father’s Day excuse to make these!
Fact: I. Love. Wings.
Plain and simple. But I hate paying top dollar for GOOD wings. Wings at the grocery store are CHEAP, and most of the other ingredients I usually already have at home. And seriously, it’s incredibly easy and you can tailor them to exactly what your family wants. Ok- so here is how you make these amazingly crunchy wings!
How To Make Oven Fried Chicken Wings With Flour:
Stage one: Cut wings apart
At my store, the only fresh (not frozen) wings you can buy have the whole piece together. You don’t HAVE to cut them apart, but I think it’s more fun. Get a knife and a good pair of kitchen scissors and pop the suckers apart. (yes, there is a way to do this with just a knife and actually slice around the joint. But really the main goal is just to end up with three pieces. It won’t taste any different)
Be sure to keep those tips for making chicken broth!
Stage two: TOSS (twice!)
Toss number one: First toss the wings in some salt, pepper and vegetable oil. (You could also do garlic, a splash of hot sauce, etc… but this isn’t really where most of the flavor will come from)
Toss number two: Put about two cups of flour in a bag. (any bag, Ziploc, trash bag, whatever). In batches of whatever fits (depending on size of bag) toss the wings in the flour until COMPLETELY covered.
Stage three: COOK!
Place on a well greased cookie sheet (I just sprayed it with Pam) and put into a 400 degree oven.
At the 30 minute mark, flip them over. (don’t worry when they don’t look good yet)
Stage four: SAUCE!
The standard buffalo wing sauce is about a stick of butter (1/2 cup), 2/3 cup of buffalo sauce (like Franks), a teaspoon or so of Worcestershire sauce, and 2 TBS of vinegar. But I like to add some garlic (preferably my roasted garlic from this post) and some extra hot sauce (if you love hot sauce, I LOVE the Rivera Hot Sauce company. They have a Roasted Jalapeno hot sauce we put on EVERYTHING). Parmesan cheese is a nice addition. And any other type of sauce could also be used of course if you’re not into hot.
Mix your sauce in a small pan over medium heat so it all melts together.
Stage five: MIX!
After the wings have been on their second side for another 25-30 more minutes (just watch them in the end), take them out, put them in a big bowl and toss them with your sauce to cover. (doing this in batches can help depending on how much you made)
(If you like drier wings, you can toss them back in the oven for five minutes and the sauce will soak in.)
This oven-fried wing recipe is SO easy, crispy and tasty. And you can tailor it easily to whatever your own personal tastes are.
Have you ever tried an oven-fried wing recipe before? Father’s Day would be a great time to start. Knock his socks off with homemade wings that I would put up against ANY good wing joint!
