Who doesn't love fried chicken? I've been known to be partial to KFC and chicken wings at a bar with a cold beer are a casual must in summer time.
So I decided to make my own fried chicken wings. Also tried a brine for the first time, this was to make sure the meat was soft and tender. I attempted the brine from this link, substituted the red pepper flakes for star anise. Follow the instructions and brine for 2 hours then 30 mins air dry.
In a bowl mix together 1 part corn flour to 2 parts flour. Add salt and pepper then mix the chicken around in your flour mixture, make sure you have enough of the flour mix to coat each wing. Drop the wings into some hot oil and each should take around 10 minutes to cook or until golden brown. I deep fried on my bbq side burner outside this stopped the smell of frying oil throughout the house.
To spice things up and have wings two ways. I made a hot sauce and mixed half the cooked wings in the sauce and left the other half left crisp.
