Mexican Deep Fried Chicken Wings - Crispy Deep Fried Wings with Mexican Spice
Recipe type: Chicken
Cuisine: Mexican
These deep-fried Mexican spiced chicken wings are out of this world. By adjusting the quantity of cayenne you can make this dish as hot or mild as you like.
  • 12-16 Chicken wings
  • 15ml Cumin seeds
  • 15ml Dried coriander leaves
  • 15ml Paprika
  • 5ml Dried oregano
  • 5ml Cayenne pepper (mild) / 15ml (medium) / 25ml (hot)
  • 5ml Garlic granules
  • 10ml Salt
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 Eggs
  1. Starting with the Mexican spice blend, place the cumin seeds, dried coriander leaves, paprika, dried oregano, cayenne pepper a dried garlic granules and salt in your spice grinder.
  2. Putting the powdered spices into the grinder along with the ingredients that require grinding helps the grinder achieve a finer result.
  3. Unpack the chicken wings. Cut away the wing tips and discard them, then slice through the center joint of each wing.
  4. Sprinkle some of the spice blend over the base of a container and pack in a single layer of the wings.
  5. Sprinkle more of the spice followed by another layer of wings.
  6. Continue with this until all of the wings are packed in.
  7. Sprinkle any remaining spice over the top, put the lid on and give it all a good shake-up.
  8. Put the wings aside for 30 minutes to marinate.
  9. Place the all-purpose flour into a bowl, and 4 well whisked eggs into another.
  10. Sprinkle a little of the flour over a platter. This is where the coated wings will set, and the layer of flour prevents the coating from sticking to the plate and getting damaged.
  11. Dredge the wings in the flour to coat them all over.
  12. Dunk the wings in the egg to wet all of the flour.
  13. Then it's back to the flour to get a good solid coating all over.
  14. Transfer the wings to the platter and allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
  15. Half-fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  16. Carefully drop the wings into the oil and fry them for 6 minutes, turning once halfway through.
  17. Use a slotted spoon to lift the wings from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  18. Serve the wings immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
