  • Pour evaporated milk into a bowl. Dip a few chicken wings into evaporated milk to coat. Remove wings from milk and shake to remove excess. Put wings into the sealable bag, seal the bag, and shake to coat wings in flour mixture. Move coated wings to a plate, keeping them from touching. Repeat process with remaining wings until all are coated in the flour mixture.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Fry chicken wings in hot olive oil, turning regularly, until browned on all sides and no longer pink at the bone, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Season fried wings with additional paprika.

12.29.15 We had a taste for some Buffalo-style wings so I used this recipe slathered the chicken with some wing sauce and did just a couple things differently. I used buttermilk (which I know is always great for fried chicken) instead of evaporated milk. Also I had concerns about frying these wings at a high temp in olive oil which has a low smoke point and isn't neutral in flavor so I used corn oil. These wings cooked up with a crispy coating but still juicy and tasty. Read More

We made this last night for the NFC championship games and they came out awesome! The wings by themselves were a little under salted but after slathering them in the wing sauce "http://allrecipes.com/recipe/219109/buffalo-chicken-wing-sauce/" they were perfect. Both my wife and I thought they were the best wings we'd ever tasted. I'm a huge fan of the texture and crispness. These will go great tossed in a bowl with just about any sauce or rub. Read More

I made this recipe this other night because I wanted to use my brand new deep fryer. And all I have to say is WOW! My family was very impressed and astonished about the taste and crunchiness of the outside. Instead of using condensed milk I used buttermilk and didnt exactly properly measure the spices and seasonings. I just eyed it all out and it cane out beautiful! Very happy about the way this meal turned out. I served it with cilantro lime rice-a-roni and broccoli florets. I also made a quick buffalo dip sauce with hot sauce garlic powder butter and pepper! DELICIOUS! Read More

Super quick and easy! A little under seasoned for just plain (no sauce used). I soaked in almond milk due to allergies- worked fine. Beautiful crisp coating. Read More
