  • Egg - 1 piece
  • Vegetable oil - 1 liter,
  • Water - 200 ml

  • Dry herbs (Provencal, Italian and others) - 1 teaspoon,
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon,
  • Ground black pepper - half a small spoon,
  • Ground red pepper, paprika to taste.

  2. Cut into 3 parts. I put it in a deep bowl.
  3. Add salt and 2 large tablespoons of water, pepper. Mix thoroughly. Leave for 1 hour.
  4. I prepare batter in a separate bowl. I mix starch with flour, put all the spices. I am mixing. Add extra salt to taste.

To make the breading less hard, reduce the ratio of starch to flour.

  1. I mix the eggs with water. Gently whisk. I pour to a mixture of spices. Constantly stirring, add new water. The chicken batter will turn out not too thick, close in consistency to kefir.
  2. I take out the wings from the dishes with salt and pepper, transfer to batter.Stir so that each particle is thoroughly saturated.
  3. To get a crispy crust, I use dry breading. I cook as follows: add a small amount of paprika to the flour (to give a different color), salt and pepper.
  4. I roll the wings of batter in flour. It is better to do alternately with each particle, not letting the batter drain onto the plate. I send wings to the pan.
  5. I pour vegetable oil into the pan. I take the container more voluminously and deeper so that the wings float freely. I bring the oil to a boil. I lower to the formation of a slight blush.

Useful advice. Cook on high heat in a thick-walled dish that holds heat well. Otherwise, the wings slowly prepare and absorb a large amount of oil, become fatty and tasteless.

  1. I spread the finished wings on a plate in batter as in KFC. I wipe all sides with napkins, removing excess fat. I put a new portion in the pan.

Use the oven if, due to improperly selected temperature conditions, the meat turned out to be raw inside.
