Who doesn’t love some good ‘ol fried chicken? Seriously? Who doesn’t love the good crispy juiciness that comes from this classic comfort food? I surely do and if I could eat it everyday without suffering some serious consequences I would!
I love all kinds of fried chicken—Southern, Korean, Tennesee, but my favorite is Dominican Style Fried Chicken. And yes… Dominicans fry chicken wings differently that most people. For starters, Dominicans don’t fry their chicken with a flour, egg, or even beer batter like other traditional fried chicken recipes. Instead they season it with a healthy serving of adobo, lime, vinegar, oregano and other seasonings. They also fry it in piping hot oil that results in a juicy and crispy wings that can make anyone believe they’re in heaven.
Making these wings is actually pretty straight forward and somewhat simple. You can fry them all the way through or finish cooking them in the oven. If you’re making a large batch, I’d recommend doing the latter. See below for ingredients and directions to making these forbidden delights.

- 1-2lbs of Chicken Wings
- 1 Lime
- 1/8 cumin
- 1tsp sazon or paprika
- 1tsp oregano
- 1 ½ tbsp vinegar
- 1 ½ tsp adobo
- 1tsp onion powder
- 1tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp black pepper
1. Season your chicken wings with all of your ingredients
2. Mix all of your ingredients making sure they’re all coated with the seasoning/marinade
3. Fill skillet halfway with oil and warm up on medium flame
4. Once hot, add your chicken wings making sure not to overcrowd your pot
5. When your chicken wings are golden and crispy place them on a baking tray and bake at 425 degrees until you've fried the rest of your chicken. This will keep your chicken wings warm and crispy.
6. Drizzle fresh lime juice at the end and enjoy!
If you want to skip the baking process then simply fry your chicken all the way through. You may have to lower the flame so that they don’t burn. Enjoy! Buen provecho. Send me pictures of when you make them! I’d love to see your creations.
