This easy and tasty recipe for chicken wings always seems to be a favorite whenever I serve them. I usually serve them as a hearty appetizer with a buffet dinner, but they can be served over rice for a tasty dinner.
Chicken is not my all time favorite food. I like it, but I am more of a beef person. However, when it comes to wing recipes, chicken soars to the top my favorite food line-up.
What I like about the chicken wing is that the skin is in good ratio to the meat. Meaning, when you bite into a chicken wing, you don’t run out of skin. You eat the whole thing in two bites and get skin in every bite, which is great, especially when the wings are fried brown and crispy.

EASY RECIPE FOR CHICKEN WINGS II
prep time: 15 minutes
cook time: 25 minutes
2 lbs of chicken wings with tips removed or wing drummettes
2 eggs, well beaten
1 tsp garlic salt
oil for frying
1. Wash and dry wings. Place egg in a small deep bowl. Add garlic salt to the eggs and beat well.
2. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet to 350° to 360°. When a droplet of the egg mixture is dropped into the heating oil and immediately bubbles and rises to the top, the oil is ready for frying. Dip the wings into the egg mixture. Shake off any excess egg batter and place wings in the hot oil. Do not crowd the wings. Fry until they are golden brown. Remove to a paper towel for draining. A great dip for these wings is bottled Chinese Kung Pao Sauce. It is spicy and very very addictive. Or, try some of the dips below.
