Simple Crispy Fried Chicken Wings.

Simple Crispy Fried Chicken Wings.

After posting an image of these crispy wings on Instagram a couple weeks back, the DM's we're rocking with requests for the recipe. And while this probably won't be considered a "Caribbean" recipe, I thought that it will still fit within the theme of this website. Infused with herbal flavors as we do on the islands, these wings are super simple to make and with the crispy finish.. you'll impress your family and guests. Guaranteed!

Tamarind Glazed Chicken Wings.

Tamarind Glazed Chicken Wings.

While I did plan to share this recipe a while back, it was only after I received a request via Instagram did I actually get in the kitchen with chicken wings and camera in hand. The person who made the request was looking for a chicken wing idea to prepare for her Super Bowl party.. but she wasn't a fan of the typical "Buffalo Wings". With that in mind, I decided to give her and her guests a true taste of the Caribbean by using a tamarind glaze with a slight kick, to finish off the wings.

The Ultimate Island Spicy Fried Chicken.

The Ultimate Island Spicy Fried Chicken.

I must have been about 10 years old when my aunt and uncle had gone on vacation in Canada and I spent the nights (weekends) with my older cousin. With an entire house to ourselves, you can only imagine the commess (creative trouble) we got into. It was about 11 pm one night when we decided we'd make fried chicken. Beyond the total destruction of the kitchen (oil and flour everywhere), we ended up with bland over-cooked chicken. As with any true Caribbean child, we employed the use of peppersauce, ketchup and mustard to salvage things.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Sandwich.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Sandwich.

Though this recipe was influenced by an image/advertising poster we saw at a local McDonalds restaurant, the manner in which we marinate, 'bread' and fry the chicken is 100% Caribbean! It's a recipe our mom would use when making fried chicken for us and not unlike many such recipes you'll encounter as you make your way up the island chain which makes up the West Indies. For maximum flavor and texture, I'll highly recommend using boneless chicken thighs, but if chicken breasts are your thing... you'll also have fun with that.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Wings Recipe.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Wings Recipe.

I love me some chicken wings, but I’ve come to accept that most restaurants in North America do them “Buffalo” style. Which basically means… fried crisp then tossed in a vinegar based hot sauce. Vinegar is one of those ingredients you won’t see being used much in the Caribbean, unless it’s for an escovitch sauce […]

Chinese Style Fried Chicken.

Chinese Style Fried Chicken.

I still recall the first time I had this fried chicken at my aunt’s kitchen in Trinidad, topped with the juice of lime pepper sauce which had been marinating for a couple months. The succulent pieces of chicken was just outstanding with the drops of spicy sauce, but the crispy skin stole the show. It’s […]
