Hallelu-jah! Chicken Wings
2 lbs. party wings
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons pepper
1 cup panko crumbs (optional)
large heavy-bottom pot or deep fryer
vegetable or canola oil
2 cups Junebug’s Hallelu-jah! Sauce
Wash the chicken breasts in cold water. Sprinkle the wing sections with salt and pepper. Prepare a batter mixture using all-purpose flour, salt, pepper, and panko crumbs. Mix according to your taste and preferences. Dip the wings in the flour mixture before frying.
Heat the vegetable or canola oil in your deep fryer or large pot; use 2 cups of oil for 2 pounds of chicken wings, adding more if necessary. Allow oil to heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Add the chicken wings to the oil a few at a time to keep the temperature high enough. Leave the wings in the oil until they become golden brown in color, which usually takes about six to eight minutes. Make sure the oil is covering the wings at all times; if not, add more oil.
Remove the wings from the oil with tongs or a small mesh scoop. Place fried wings in a bowl and toss with Junebug’s Hallelu-jah! Sauce until completely coated.
