There’s our favorite; Korean fried chicken wings. But there are also lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, butter, blackened wings, and so many more!

Korean Fried Chicken Wings
Korean chicken wings are something to behold. Let’s just say if there were a chicken wing royal court, they would have a case for king or queen. So, we had to include this double-fried chicken wings recipe on the list.
After marinating in garlic, ginger, and mirin (Japanese cooking wine) for an hour or so, they get a dunk in an oil bath at a lowish temp. Then you crank up the heat to get the wings extra crispy. But wait, there are sauces! One sweet and tangy, the other sweet and spicy. Both otherworldly!
Now, we love our chicken wings baked, slow-cooked, or air-fried, but deep-fried breaded chicken wings are our absolute favorite, by far!
