No need for bread crumbs or any other high carb coating as frying the chicken wings with tallow in the pan at medium to high heat creates a crisp skin.

A fresh lemon wedge tops these keto garlic chicken wings off.

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

This recipe makes four servings of garlic chicken wings. We enjoy our wings simply on our own or with our Simple Salad.

  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, and cook without the lid for 5 minutes. Depending on the size of the wing pieces, they will be ready. To check if they are ready, you can cut through 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.

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

Cooking your chicken wings in Tallow or Lard gives them a great taste, but these pure animal fats are perfect for a keto diet. You can read more in our article on the best oils for frying.

Both tallow and lard can be strained, stored in the fridge, and used many times.

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

Are Chicken Wings Keto Friendly?

Chicken wings are the fattiest part of the chicken. They have a good ratio of protein to fat and are very keto-friendly. 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.

If you want to make a larger batch of the Keto Chicken Wings recipe, adjust the amounts in the card above.
