How to Make Boneless Chicken Wings


You may be wondering how to make boneless chicken wings. Luckily boneless chicken wings are very easy to make and the truth is, there is really no such thing as a boneless chicken wing. Boneless chicken wings are simply breaded pieces of chicken breast. Popular chains like Buffalo Wild Wings have made these extremely popular. What I like about boneless wings instead of your normal chicken wing is that they are far less messy. They are very easy to eat with a fork and you don’t have to worry about bones. In this article I explain how to make a crispy breaded that can be used for all of the sauces. I also introduce recipes for 5 of my favorite wing sauces. These sauces include buffalo, honey BBQ, Parmesan garlic, Asian, and Caribbean jerk. Fans of a lot of spice are sure to enjoy the buffalo, Asian, and Caribbean jerk sauces. Those who like a more mild sauce will enjoy the honey BBQ and the parmesan garlic. With the playoffs coming up and the Super Bowl right around the corner, these are perfect for Game Day.

The first thing you are going to want to do is bread the chicken pieces and fry them. This is a universal breading that will work perfectly for all of the sauces in this post. The sauces can be prepared in advance or while the chicken tenders are frying.

Caribbean Jerk Wing Sauce-

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons green onion (minced)
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees. In a large bowl combine flour, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. In a small bowl whisk together egg and milk. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture, and then roll in the flour mixture. Repeat so that each piece of chicken is double coated. Refrigerate the breaded chicken for 20 minutes.
  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.
  3. Mix fried chicken bits with your favorite wing sauce (sauce recipes found below).
  4. Now, here are the sauces. The sauces can be prepared in advance or while the chicken bits are frying. I have recipes for 5 different types of delicious wing sauces. Most of these sauces will make a lot so they will be able to cover large batches of boneless wings.

Buffalo Wing Sauce-

  1. Combine hot sauce and butter in a small bowl. Microwave on high until the butter has melted (about 20 to 30 seconds). Mix well.
  2. This recipe can easily be double if you are making a large number of wings.

Honey BBQ Wing Sauce-

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine all of the ingredients. Stir until well combined and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes.

Parmesan Garlic Wing Sauce-

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Toss garlic cloves with olive oil in a small oven safe dish. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the garlic cloves began to turn light brown. Remove from the oven, cool garlic, and finely mince with a sharp knife.
  2. Combine garlic and the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well, cover and chill for several hours before using.

Asian Wing Sauce-

  1. In a small bowl mix cornstarch with rice vinegar. Set aside. In a small saucepan combine remaining ingredients. Add the cornstarch and rice vinegar mixture and mix well.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat then simmer until it becomes thick. Remove from heat, allow it to cool then cover and chill it until ready to use (you can also use it right away if the chicken is ready).

Caribbean Jerk Wing Sauce-

  1. In a small saucepan sauté onion in butter over medium heat. Whisk in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

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.
