If you follow me on social media then you know my unhealthy obsession with college football and all things tailgating. I am always twisting up my tailgates with cool new foods or putting twist on classics of course. I’ve been dying for an awesome wing recipe and I think I found one! I made some of the tastiest teriyaki glazed wings I’ve ever had, thanks to the amazing crust on the chicken, seriously! I first sort of marinated the chicken wings in sesame oil for about 30 minutes to just incorporate some flavor and then it was all about the breading.
Start by making a simple egg wash consisting of eggs and whole milk. Doing this will help the flour stick to the chicken. Next I used Bob’s Red Mill(r) Organic All-Purpose Flour which was perfect because it’s so rich. Bob’s Red Mill Organic All-Purpose Flour is unbleached, unbromated white flour milled from certified organic, U.S.—grown wheat. It is not enriched with any additives and it’s excellent for providing the perfect coating on my chicken wings. I also add in a little corn starch to ensure it’s light and fluffy along with some salt and cayenne for some flavor.
Next it’s all about the frying! I’m fortunate enough to have a deep fryer, but you can absolutely achieve the same end product by cooking them in oil in a pot with a candy thermometer. Simply add in your canola oil and set the temperature to 350° and cook for 7 minutes for a perfect golden crusted cooked through delicious chicken wing.
The glaze is incredibly easy and coat the chicken so well, you’ll be amazed at how delicious it tastes.
