Keto Chicken Wings
Keto Chicken Wings Recipe, Crispy, Garlic. Perfect Finger Food.

Our Keto Chicken Wings recipe is a great source of fat easy and pan-fried for those without a deep fryer.

No need for bread crumbs or any other high carb coating as frying the chicken wings with tallow in the pan at a medium to high heat creates a crisp skin. The garlic really tops these wings off with a fresh lemon wedge.

Chicken Wings Are Very Keto Friendly

Chicken wings are the fattiest part of the chicken they have a good ratio of protein to fat. When cooked in tallow with a fatty dip they are super keto friendly.

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.

Pan Fry Chicken Wings In Tallow or Lard To Make Them Extra Keto

Cooking your chicken wings in Tallow or Lard not only gives them a great taste but these pure animal fats are perfect for a keto diet. You can read more in our article the best oils for frying.

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.

  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.
