Something I made on the weekend

120 Chicken wing drumlettes

One pound of butter

500 ml olive oil

Dozen eggs

Bread crumbs

Dry spices: Chili; salt, pepper etc to taste.


Parch or wash chicken with warm water/drain


Melt a quarter pound of butter and add 125 ml oil (use a skillet with raised sides) at medium heat. Oil raises the cooking temperature and keeps the butter from frothing or burning.


Line counter with plastic.  Make a little pile of flour, a bowl of eggs lightly beaten, and a pile of bread crumbs.


Also line cookie  sheets with foil.


Dust chicken with flour, dip in egg and roll in breadcrumbs. Fry until very lightly golden and turn over in oil and butter mix.


Then transplant to cookie sheet.  Shake spice mixture to taste over the wings. Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 (no need to turn).

Refresh oil/butter with another quarter pound of butter and 125ml of oil roughly after every 30 wings. 


Delicious hot or cold!  I made this as one of the a finger foods for our holiday open house.

have you thought of trying paprika instead(or with) of breadcrumbs? I've never made hotwings, but i find it goes well with spicy seasonings on chicken.
I have used paprika in the past either in the egg batter or mixed with the flour. I find you can always add paprika to things.

We have a couple of spice sensitive friends so I didn't make anything too spicy for a large gathering. I found that shaking the spices before baking worked well and made less of mess in the oil/butter

For myself I'm eating the leftovers dipped in a hot garlic/chipotle sauce!
