Low Carb Garlic Chicken WingsChicken Wings are a great source of fat for your Ketogenic Diet and there are so many ways to prepare them. Our Low Carb Garlic Chicken Wings are just like fried chicken, without needing a deep fryer.

Pan frying in tallow, or lard, is a great way to get the fried chicken flavor without needing a deep fryer. I know there are some days that I just don’t want to go through the effort of cleaning my deep fryer after using it, and pan frying makes it easy.

Both tallow and lard can be strained, stored in the fridge and used many times over. Once it begins to smell it’s time to throw it out.

This recipe makes 4 serves. We like to enjoy our wings simply on their own or with our Simple Low Carb Salad.

Ingredients for Making Your Low Carb Garlic Chicken Wings:

  • 2 pounds (approx 10 pieces) of Chicken Wings, cut into wingettes and drumettes
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon of Salt
  • ½ teaspoon of Pepper
  • 3 ounces of Tallow
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Instructions for Making Your Low Carb Garlic Chicken Wings:

  1. In a mixing bowl, marinate the chicken wings in the garlic powder, salt and pepper and allow to sit aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Add the tallow to a large non-stick frying pan and heat over medium to high heat.
  3. When the tallow has melted and is very hot, add the wing pieces and fry for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn the wing pieces over, place a lid on the pan and fry for another 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the lid and turn the wing pieces, cook without the lid for a further 5 minutes. Depending on the size of the wing pieces, they will be ready. To check if they are ready you can cut though one of the larger pieces and check if the flesh is cooked, or use a meat thermometer and ensure the temperature is above 70C/160F.
  6. Remove from the pan. Serve with lemon wedges.
