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. We use it for most of our keto chicken wings recipes. Once it begins to smell it’s time to throw it out.

If you would prefer to use the deep fryer, check out our delicious Keto Buffalo Wings they go great with our Feta Cheese Dressing.

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

Ingredients for Garlic Keto 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

How To Make Keto Chicken Wings

  1. Separate the wings, keeping the drumettes and the middle section. Discard the tip. (you’ll now have 20 pieces, one serve is 5 of these chicken wing pieces)
  2. In a mixing bowl, marinate the chicken wings in the garlic powder, salt and pepper and allow to sit aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the tallow to a large non-stick frying pan and heat over medium to high heat.
  4. When the tallow has melted and is very hot, add the wing pieces and fry for 5 minutes.
  5. Turn the wing pieces over, place a lid on the pan and fry for another 5 minutes.
  6. 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.
  7. Remove from the pan. Serve with lemon wedges.
