Lime Fried Chicken Wings

The Super Bowl is right around the corner.  Now that we know who is going to be playing, it's time to plan the menu.  What is a game of football without some delicious chicken wings?  These Lime Fried Chicken Wings are the perfect finger food during game time.

The wings are a little tangy from the lime, crispy and delicious.  Enjoy!


18 wings washed and pat dried
3/4 cup of fresh lime juice
2 garlic cloves minced
1 1/2 tsp salt divided
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder divided
1 1/2 onion powder divided
1 tsp black pepper divided
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
oil for frying

To make the marinade, mix together the lime juice, garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper.  Mix well.  Place the chicken wings into a resealable 1 gallon plastic food storage bag, then add the marinade.  Marinade in the refrigerator overnight or up to 2 hours.

Take chicken out of the refrigerator and drain through a colander at least 15 minutes before frying.   
Into another resealable bag add the flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 tsp black pepper, stir to combine.  Set a large cast iron dutch oven or frying pan over medium-high heat and add enough oil to cover the wings.  Keep oil at around 350 degrees on a thermometer.

Place at least 6 wings into the bag, shake to coat.  Fry chicken wings until nice and brown, about 8-10 minutes.  Repeat until all wings are fried.
