Grilling Chicken Wings 'n then Frying them

Hey all,

Do you think it is a good idea to grill some chicken wings until they are cooked (so all the fat comes out) and then quickly flash fry them to give it a crispy texture/colour (like buffalo wings).

The reason why i am asking this is cause everytime i try to fry wings it always end up being burnt/undercooked n plus i guess it would be slightly healthier since all the chicken fat has been drained out

Aaron

Personally I wouldn't do that...I'd just eat them grilled...Or maybe fry at a lower temperature so the wings will cook inside, while being nice and brown on the outside....
It may be that you are frying in oil that is too hot....

Have Fun!

Exactly why no...Can be several reasons...Try "brining" (soaking the chicken in a salt water solution) your chicken first. This seems to eliminate the problem for me.

Enjoy!

I deep fry drumettes til done, drain off the excess oil, toss them with some wing sauce, then bake in a 400 degree oven for about 5 minutes or so.

lol nah gotta to have the skin...... i am just a bit health concious when it comes to deep frying food. I love eating fried chicken but i think it gets quite sickly when u take the first bite and all u have is a mouthful of grease and chicken fat. That is why i started this thread to see if it is possible to get the deep fry taste with less chicken fat since it will be drained off under the grill.

i dont know... we english people dont really know how to eat fried chicken.. the only good place we can get buffalo wings is from hooters...

I usually don't boil, but a quick two minute boil followed by finishing to temp in an 300f oven produces some awesome results. :)

I wouldn't mix grilling and frying in most cases. However, I have been known to flash fry and then finish in the oven.

We eat alot of chicken wings, especially during football season.

Set oven to 400F. Place wings on a thin baking sheet and stick it in the middle of the oven. Bake for about an hour, maybe slightly more and drain the wings two or three times during the course of cooking.

In a small cup place a fat pat of butter and about 1/8 cup of Frank's Hot Sauce. Toss into the microwave for 30 seconds or so and melt the butter, then give a little stir. You could add some garlic if you want to but we never bother.

When the wings are crispy enough to suit you, remove and immediately brush with the the sauce.

That's it! These are as good as most of the wings you get at restaurants and they are probably healthier. If you are eating low carb then this is a great low stress dinner item. The bottoms get a very nice crispy layer where they stick to the pan, just delicious!

Hey - no need to do the "drain the wings two or three times during the course of cooking" nonsense!!!!!

I also bake my wings, but do so on a regular slotted broiler pan. No draining necessary & the same crispy result.

How I personally do mine is season them with dried oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, granulated garlic, ground cayenne pepper, chili powder - whatever suits me at the time - & then bake them for 20 minutes at 450F. I then drop the temp down to 375 for another 15 minutes. Take them from the oven, turn them over, season the 2nd side, & bake for another 15 minutes. Turn the heat back up to 450 for a last 15 minutes, remove from oven, toss with sauce of choice in a large bowl, & serve.
