This recipe is Snoop Dogg’s Chicken Wings modified and simplified. Let’s dive right into this.
Prepare 20 pieces of chicken wings. Then wash them thoroughly using tap water. Then, dry them up with paper towel.
Seasoning the chicken
Let’s put some seasoning on those chicken wings. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Also, add 1 teaspoon of ground paprika. Now mix them up using your hands.
Next we have to prepare the batter. Most of the fried chicken recipe involves making the batter with butter milk. However, butter milk is not easily seen in many parts of the world. So, I will replace the butter milk with the following ingredients:
Plain Yogurt 1 cup (250g),
Milk 1 paper cup (200ml),
Salt 1 teaspoon,
pepper 1 teaspoon,
and lemon juice.
Whisk the mixture well.
Pour the batter into the seasoned chicken. If you have the time, please let it sit inside the fridge overnight/ 6 hours / even 1 hour to have all the seasoning melt into the meat and tenderize the meat. If you really don’t have time, it’s okay to just let them sit until we prepare the flour mixture.
Prepare a large bowl to mix the flour mixture. Toss in the following ingredients:
All-purpose flour 2 paper cups
Corn starch 1/4 paper cup
Garlic powder 2 tablespoon
Onion powder 2 tablespoon
Ground Paprika 1 tablespoon
Baking powder 1/2 tablespoon
Salt 1 tablespoon
Black pepper 1 tablespoon
Thyme 1 teaspoon
Oregano 1 teaspoon
White pepper 1 teaspoon
Now Whisk this well and pour the flour mixture into a medium-sized plastic bag.
Coating the chicken wings
Pick up 5 chicken wings from the batter; shake off any excess; and place them inside the plastic bag with the flour mixture. Close the opening and shake them so that the flour mixture is evenly coated on the chicken wings. Make sure you pack the coating well using your hands. When packed in well, shake off excess and remove from the plastic bag and put them on a tray. Repeat the process until all the wings are coated well. Any remaining flour mixture can be put inside the fridge for future use.
I believe I can Fry
Get a deep pot and pour in 1L of canola oil. Bring the heat to high and make sure the temperature reaches 350F (180C). Once the temperature is reached, you can lower the heat to medium low. Put the chicken into the pot but please don’t overcrowd the pot. The pot size I have can fry up to 10 wings a batch.
Fry the chicken for 6~ 8 minutes depending on the heat. Once you are done with the first batch, make sure you remove the residual fried coatings so that it doesn’t stick on the next batch. If you leave the residuals there, it will burn and it won’t taste good. Also, I try to keep the temperature to at least 300F (150C).
Once done, we need to give the wings a final touch. Sprinkle fine salt and/or parsley to the final product and serve.
