How to Make Boneless Chicken Wings 5 Ways

This is the only recipe you need for boneless chicken wings. You’ll learn how to bread and fry chicken breast pieces for the perfect crunchy bite. The recipe also includes five different sauces to serve with the wings: buffalo, honey barbecue, Parmesan garlic, Asian, and Caribbean.

The normal process for making boneless chicken wings involves frying chicken pieces and then tossing them in one sauce of your choice. But if you can’t choose which sauce you want, go ahead and serve the fried chicken alongside an assortment of dipping sauces. This second option is super fun for parties.

Boneless chicken wings: What to expect

  • Taste: Obviously, the sauce you choose dictates the flavor of the finished dish. The chicken itself, prepared and fried properly, should taste like a fresh chicken nugget.
  • Texture: The chicken should be tender on the inside, which a crispy coating on the outside. The sauce will add a slightly stickiness.  
  • Foolproof factor: This recipe is a medium degree of difficulty. Breading the chicken can be tedious. You can easily prevent undercooked or overcooked chicken by heating the oil properly and using a meat thermometer. Reminder: Cooked chicken has an internal temperature of 165°F or 74°C. Your oil should be hot enough to pop a kernel of corn, but not so hot that it’s smoking.
  • Timing: You can get this dish and one sauce ready in less than an hour, including 20 minutes of downtime while your chicken is in the refrigerator.

You don’t need a deep fryer to make wings. I deep fry in a large, deep pot. You’ll also need a meat thermometer, some flat dishes for breading, and baking sheets to stay organized. I like to lay out the breaded chicken pieces on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Then, I’ll put the whole sheet into the refrigerator for the cooling step.

Before I start frying, I’ll set out a different baking sheet lined with paper towels. That’s where I’ll place the chicken pieces as I pull them out of the hot oil.

  2. Fry chicken in the hot oil in batches until the outside is nicely browned and the juices run clear (about 5 minutes per batch). Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all of the chicken is gone.

Sorry, I stumbled upon this page stating "there is really no such thing as a boneless chicken wing." and I would like to respectfully disagree. There is in fact real boneless chicken wings. I serve them from my food truck, and they are served all over the world. Specifically in thailand, and taiwan, which i have visited and tasted with my own pallets. I'm certain other parts of the world serve them as well, i have yet the pleasure to venture to try them.

Add some cornstarch to the flour and they will stay crunchy for hours. I use 1 cup flour to 1/2 cup corn starch.
