I first heard about this crispy garlic fried chicken wings dish from my youngest sister as it is a staple dish at their household. My family is a big fan of fried chicken, so I thought that this one would be a good one to make for them.
My sister normally uses different parts of the chicken, but I decided to use chicken wings since it’s easier to fry. The chicken wings were seasoned and then coated in a mixture of garlic, egg and cornstarch. It was then fried until browned and cooked through.
A challenge I encountered was when some garlic got separated from the batter and was fried separately. The wings turned out okay: crispy on the outside, moist inside and tasted garlicky! This garlic fried chicken is easy to make and is a sure hit especially for those who love garlic!
These crispy garlic fried chicken wings are for the garlic lovers! The garlic taste is strong and the wings are very crispy.
- 2 lbs chicken wings ,a mixture of wingettes and drumettes

Place the chicken wings in a big mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and mix well.
Add the egg and cornstarch. Mix until well blended and chicken pieces are fully coated with the egg-cornstarch mixture.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the wings, in batches and fry until brown and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels.
