Normally, people barbecue chicken to impart a smokey flavor, but in this case, the flour is smoked before being added to the mix.
A pound of chicken wings or 453.6 grams (around 4-5 chicken wing pieces will come in 453.6 g)
A cup of buttermilk.
A cup of flour.
Half teaspoons of black pepper, dried oregano, red chili powder, dried rosemary, dried sage, dried thyme, cayenne pepper, white pepper, and onion powder.
Divide the aforementioned spices into two halves; one half for seasoning chicken and the other for seasoning flour.
A teaspoon of lemon zest.
Four garlic cloves, minced.
A tablespoon of any hot sauce.
Oil for frying.
Salt to taste.
Tips to prepare
Combine the chicken wings and half of the seasonings in a mixing dish. Combine them thoroughly.
Combine the lemon zest, garlic cloves, and spicy sauce in a mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk and thoroughly coat all of the chicken pieces. Allow them to marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
Prepare the grill. Place the flour on a grill pan or tray (with no holes) and grill for 3-4 minutes. This will enhance the smokey flavor of the flour.
Remove the flour and season it with the remaining spices. Remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk one at a time and coat all sides with the seasoned flour.
Allow the pieces to sit for around 10 minutes. Heat the oil and get ready to cook when the time comes. Deep-fry chicken chunks till golden brown.
