Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings

5 from 3 reviews

Salted pepper chicken wings aren’t like your typical American-style wings – it’s lightly breaded, super crunchy, and simply tossed in salt, pepper, and a few sliced jalapenos for some added heat.


  • 12 chicken wings (drumettes and middle)
  • ¼ cup of flour

  • ⅓ tsp baking powder

  • 2 tbsp potato starch (cornstarch is an acceptable alternative)

  • 1 tsp salt, split.

  • ½ tsp pepper

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ½ cup of vegetable oil

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • ⅓ cup of jalapenos, sliced



For the wings, I like to buy the Costco party wing packs, so that I can freeze and use them later.
