This dish was a special treat for my daughter’s aka sous chef. My girls “LOVE” wingettes and I am always looking for new way’s to make them. All the while teaching them how to cook. Last week we were on youtube looking for some recipe’s they would actually eat, we were successful. It can be trying to find new thing’s for them to try, since they are super taster aka very picky eaters. We now use the term super tasters instead of picky because of a school assignment. The assignment breaks down why some people are selective eaters, etc. I must say the assignment was very informative and gives me a better understanding on their food likes and dislikes. Now that we are informed let’s jump into the wingettes that were a must try.
I have fried wingettes before but never with this technique. This technique made the wingettes very crunchy and juicy on the inside.
Ok so let’s get started
12 wingettes (or more I just made a small batch for the family)
1/2 tsp paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper
1/8 tsp of powdered ginger
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
3/4 Cup of Cornstarch
Oil for frying (I used
Clean wingettes and dry thoroughly. ( I soak my wingettes in water and 1/4 cup of vinegar) for 20 minutes and dry. Place in a large bowl.
Put all season into a bowl and mix together. (EXCEPT THE SALT)
Heat oil in a frying pan to 350°
While your oil is heating, add your seasoning to the wingettes and fully coat each wingette.
Roll the wingettes into the cornstarch and fully coat.
Fry in small batches of 4 to 6 wingettes at a time for 10-12 minutes. Remove and place in a bowl lined with paper towel to drain excess oil. Once your wingettes have been fried once it’s time for the second fry. Place 4 to 6 wingettes back in the oil for another 10- 12 minutes.
Once done immediately add salt.
Drizzle with (honey or maple syrup and a few dashes of hot sauce) Boy oh Boy these are a great treat every once in a while.
Enjoy…..we certainly did…lol.
Until Next Time,
