Deep Fried Chicken Wings

Tonight we’re invited over to the Parrets’ for roast suckling pig.  To me that says barbecue, but not so according to M. Parret.  According to him, it will be a sit down affair with real glasses and plates, while I was thinking paper and/or plastic.  He was so offended, I begged his pardon 😀  Anyway.

I decided to make some fried chicken wings, on a real platter with paper napkins, to hand around with the before dinner drinks.  And anyway, the last time I made chicken wings for drinks they went faster than the foie gras.  We had some for lunch with sauteed yellow zucchini.  So Franco-American, minus the can.  The flowers are from my husband for my birthday tomorrow 🙂

Deep Fried Chicken Wings

 2-3 pounds of cut up chicken wings

Emeril’s essence

Salt and pepper


Peanut oil

Season the wings with Emeril’s essence, salt and pepper, then allow to sit around for about 30 minutes.  Dust or dredge the wings with flour and deep fry in the peanut oil until golden, about 10-12 minutes.

    Surprisingly, chicken wings are nowhere near as popular in Europe as in the states. I used to love the hot wings sold in American bars. I’m sure yours with Emeril’s essence will be a big hit 😉

    • Thank you c. After they are fried and still warm, you can choose to toss them in either barbecue sauce or a honey mustard sauce for a special treat 🙂
