This ain’t your mommas fried chicken…


You guys may have noticed the blog is going through some changes. If this were a person we would be in that awkward puberty phase. Soon we will emerge a beautiful swan. We are moving the blog so we will have greater control over our content and make the blog for better for you guys. There are still more changes coming. One of the changes that I am most excited about is our new recipe formatting. The recipes will now look more uniform and be easier for you to print. Unfortunately, making the changes has been eating up more of my time than I thought. Add house shopping and a sick/teething baby and I have been unable to post. But that changes today!

Well this is definitely not my momma’s fried chicken. Which I have tried many times to replicate. Without success. At this point I’m pretty sure my mom possess some sort of sea witch magic and her chicken is unattainable. This chicken is crispy, delish and gluten free, if that’s your jam. Peanut couldn’t get enough. One note about the recipe. I seasoned the chicken with Adobo because I’m Puerto Rican and we put Adobo on everything. You can substitute any seasonings you like for it. But I would suggest trying it because Adobo is delicious.  Let’s get started.

  • Oil for Frying


  1. Fill dutch oven or other heavy bottom pot about halfway with oil.

  4. Mix the wings with your hands to make sure seasoning is distributed evenly
  5. Place potato starch in a 1 gallon plastic bag or large brown paper bag
  6. Add several wings and shake vigorously to coat, place wings back in bowl
  7. Repeat step until all wings have been coated with starch

  11. When wings are done, crank the heat to high and wait about 10 minutes or until temperature is 320 degrees.
