Shannen Cooks: BBQ Chicken Wings with Homemade Paprika Fries

September 28, 2018

If you have been reading my previous posts, you already know that I have been spending a great deal of time in and out of the kitchen honing my skills. I also started the efforts of eating healthy. Still, there are times that I feel like I need to cheat on my diet and eat what I crave for.

My cravings lately have been anything that has chicken in it. So in this post, I will share with you a quick and easy recipe using chicken wings.

Total prep & cook time: 30 minutes

Servings: 2


8 chicken wings

3 big potatoes

2 tsp salt (1 tsp salt for chicken & 1 tsp salt for fries)

1 tsp pepper

5 tbsp flour

2 tsp paprika

2-3 tbsp of of ready made BBQ Sauce

Olive Oil to fry chicken wings and fries

How to cook:

BBQ Chicken Wings

  1. Marinate the chicken wings with 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper then sprinkle the 5 tbsp flour to coat each one.
  2. Deep fry in olive oil until golden brown. Make sure the oil is hot enough to get that crispy texture. (I used olive oil in this recipe because I still want it to be a little bit healthy but you can opt to use any other oil to fry the chicken wings.)
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan then drain on paper towel.
  4. Remove the used oil from the pan then put again the cooked chicken wings.
  5. Put 2-3 tbsp of ready made BBQ sauce then cook for at least 2-3 minutes more until the sauce is evenly mixed with the chicken wings. (Feel free to add more sauce if 2-3 tbsp is not enough. In my case, I only want a slight flavor as BBQ sauce tends to be too salty.)
  6. Serve with Homemade Paprika Fries.
