Baptist Church-Fried Chicken Wings
- 1 C. oil; for deep frying
- 1/2 C. buttermilk
- 3 Tbs. cajun seasoning
- 2 C. flour
- 1 lb. chicken wings
- 1 parsley sprigs; for garnish
In a deep fryer or high-sided skillet heat oil to 360 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine buttermilk, 1 Tbs. Cajun seasoning and 1/2 C. flour to make a thick batter. Season remaining flour with remaining Cajun seasoning. Dip wings, one at a time, into batter, allowing excess to drip off. Dredge in seasoned flour. Fry immediately in hot oil, 6 to 8 minutes, moving and turning pieces frequently with long tongs. Drain on paper towels. Do this in batches. If wings are large, remove with tongs, drain, transfer to a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until very crispy, about 10 minutes. Serve with potato salad garnished with parsley sprigs.
Yields: 2 servings (6 to 10 wings).
