2 pounds chicken wings, split at joints and tips removed
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
Vegetable oil, for frying
In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.
Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them. Toss the wings to coat them evenly with the flour mixture.
Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
Carefully add the coated chicken wings to the hot oil, a few at a time, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry the wings for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and cooked through.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried wings from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
Serve the juicy fried chicken wings hot, with your favorite dipping sauces or sides.
Enjoy your delicious and juicy fried
