Cajun Fried Turkey Wings Recipe

Cajun Fried Turkey Wings Recipe

Whew, Chile! I keep getting requests for a fried turkey recipe. You guys trust me more than I trust me! Baby, I’m not ready to fry a whole bird! I need adult supervision with grease! BUT, I will give you the BEST Cajun Fried Turkey Wings Recipe!

I searched every grocery store in my area for whole turkey wings. They were all sold out! I had to settle for the already cut wings. And, I can’t complain. I just rinsed them really well and pat them dry.

Just as I would with a whole turkey, I’m shooting this sucker up with the GOOD stuff! So much flavor in this litte jar!

I like to marinate my wings overnight. But, if you’re short on time, give them at least 4 hours to soak in the flavor.

Using a deep fryer or pan, fry the wings for 7 minutes on one side. Then, flip them over and fry for an additional 7 minutes or until the wings are COMPLETELY cooked.

My Cajun Fried Turkey Wings are the perfect substitution for a whole fried turkey. You may even enjoy these over fried chicken. Yes, they are THAT good!

Happy Frying,
