From my private chef life to friends who have a major soft spot for fried chicken, I’ve made more than my fair share of this delectable meal in my life! And while I normally make it with large pieces of chicken for big friends and family dinners – today it’s all about the finger food for game day!

Fried Chicken Wings

Gaby

Ingredients
  

  • 2 dozen chicken wings
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons Hungarian paprika
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Hot sauce for serving

Instructions
 

  • Place the chicken wings into a plastic container and cover with buttermilk along with 1 teaspoon of the paprika and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.
  • Heat 1/3-inch of oil in a large dutch oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Drain chicken in a colander. Combine the salt, remaining paprika, remaining garlic powder, cayenne pepper and thyme leaves with the flour. Liberally dredge the chicken with this mixture and shake off any excess.
  • Place chicken wings into the pan, a few at a time. The oil should cover about 1/2 of the chicken wing. Using a pair of tongs, carefully flip the wings and continue to fry until fully cooked and golden brown on all sides, about 15 minutes.
  • Drain chicken on a rack over a sheet pan and serve with hot sauce and ranch dressing or blue cheese dip
