Beer Fried Chicken Wings Recipe Kieltys Irish Sauces


Serves 4-5

2L vegetable oil – for frying
28 whole chicken wings
1 bottle local pale ale beer
250ml bottle of Kieltys hand smoked chipotle bbq sauce
1 ½ cups of corn flour
1 tbsp of fine salt
2 tbsp of onion powder
1 tbsp of smoked paprika 
1 tbsp mild mustard powder
1 tbsp of yellow mustard seeds
1 tsp of curry spice
1 tsp of ground white pepper
1 tsp of sea salt


Cut the chicken wings in half and place in a large bowl, pour the bottle of beer over the wings and allow to marinade in the fridge for 6 hours.

After 6 hours drain the remaining beer from the wings. Now add 100ml of Kieltys Chipotle sauce and mix thoroughly until all the wings are coated in the sauce. 

In a shallow baking dish combine the corn flour, paprika, mustard, onion powder, curry spice, mustard seed, salt and pepper. Sir until well blended.

Working with 1 wing at a time, dip the wings into the seasoned flour mixture and tap off any excess flour and place the wings on a tray. Now fry the wings at 180 C in small batches being careful not to crowd the pan, nudging the wings so they don’t stick. Cook until golden brown for 8-10 minutes.

Sprinkle with sea salt and serve with the remaining 150 ml of Kieltys hand smoked chipotle as a dipping sauce.
