Fried Chicken Wing Dredge

This is my go-to dredge when making fried chicken wings. It’s not too thick, so the wings don’t end up like Grandma’s fried chicken. It’s light enough to add a bit of crunch. It’s flavored just right so as to not over-power whichever sauce or seasoning I add in the end.

Fried Chicken Wing Dredge

My fried chicken wing dredge ain’t nothing fancy, but it does the job and it does it well. I make a huge batch and keep it on hand. I put a label on the outside of the container with the words ‘wing thing’ so I know exactly what’s inside!

If you’d rather buy your dredge, I cannot recommend Hooter’s wing breading. Who doesn’t love Hooter’s wings? It’s awesome on wings, like my air fryer version.

I like to make my spice, rub and seasoning mixes in big batches and keep them in large bottles with easy-to-pour shaker lids.
