Lil Rae Ray's Instagram Worthy Fried Chicken
I love a good party wanggg! Small, easy to cook and nearly impossible to fuck up! I enjoy experimenting with different seasonings and marinades especially when I'm frying my #chicken. I made these #wings the other night and only wished that I had made more than a pound for my husband Ty and I.
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes
1.5 Tbsp of Duck Fat
1 lb of Organic Party Chicken Wings
1 Cup of all purpose flour
1/4 Cup of Lowery's All Spice Seasoning
1/4 Cup of Herbs de Provence (basically a blend of basil, fennel, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, tarragon, and thyme)
1/2 Tbsp Pink Himalayan Salt (regular is fine too)
1 Tbsp Pepper
*Outraegously Tender Points*
Soak your chicken in buttermilk or normal milk for about 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours. You can speed up this process by adding a couple squeezes of lemon juice (about 1-2 oz) to break down any stringy fibers.
- In a medium to large size bowl combine all of the dry ingredients and mix with a fork.
- Beat the egg into a separate bowl and set both bowls aside.
- Wash your chicken, then pat dry.
- In a medium sized, stainless steel soup pot, add just enough peanut oil to fill the bottom. It should fill just about a quarter to half inch of the pot. You don't want a full pot of oil, my friends!
- Next, add your duck fat. After you've placed your pot over medium-high heat start coating your chicken!
- First, coat each chicken in your egg batter and then transfer to your dry #seasoning mixture.
- When you've coated a few, place them into the hot oil. Check and rotate your #fried chicken often to achieve a golden brown, crispy skin.
- I recommend that you rotate them every 4-5 minutes for a total of 15-20 minutes because these are party wings, not full size. We definitely don't want to burn them! That would just be a waste of our time, right? So keep an eye on your chick chick.
- Let your wings cool for about 8-10 minutes on a plate lined with paper towels or use a cooling rack to keep them crispy!
- Take that time to whip up some green beans or delicious corn on the cob for a quick and painless side dish! Mashed potatoes are also a knock out with this recipe!
