These Wings were made to be devoured

When I was a child, I always wanted to have fried chicken for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  When people in the US watch the Superbowl, they munch on chicken wings be it buffalo, chili garlic ,or  garlic parm. The Koreans have their own style of cooking fried chicken thus, the birth of BONCHON. There are even fast food establishments which cater to fried chicken fanatics, there’s KFC (love their hot and spicy), Mcdonald’s, and of course the Filipino favorite, Jollibee!

Fried Chicken is an all-time fave of people young and old. Even dogs would finish off the bones for you (just don’t feed them the small ones, they might choke and you wouldn't want that on your conscience!)

The way I do my chicken, is I veer away from the commercialized breading mixes found on grocery shelves. It’s very high in sodium and lessens the nutritional value of the food. I just use the usual flour/egg/cornstarch/breadcrumbs mixture or just season it with salt and pepper then fry it “naked”.

In this recipe, I seasoned the chicken with a little extra love and care.

I’m kidding!

I've received a ton of requests for this recipe, even from friends and family and honestly I didn't want to give it away but due to insistent demand, here’s the recipe for my chili garlic and garlic parm wings! Yeeey!

So, for this recipe, I just fry the chicken “naked”. Meaning no bread crumbs, no breading. Just a few spices. The secret to this recipe is in the sauce.


I tried to make it more presentable, but I was too excited to eat 'em wings. 


  • 1/2 kilo chicken wings
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1  tsp pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • optional: MSG (but i don't use this)

What to do with the chicken:
  1. Clean the wings and cut the wings at the joints, making it into three parts.
  2. Place in a bowl and marinate with the remaining ingredients. Leave it for 15 to 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the  oil in a pan.
  4. Fry the wings until golden brown. Set aside on a plate lined with paper towel.



  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce 

How to:

  1. In a small bowl, add garlic and butter. Pop in the microwave for about a minute or until the butter is melted. You may also heat the mixture in a pan if in case you don't have a microwave.
  2. Mix in the hot sauce. You may add a few more tablespoons if you want it a little more spicier.
  3. Pour the sauce on top of the wings and toss until homogeneously combined.



  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley

How to:

  • In a small bowl, add garlic and butter. Pop in the microwave for about a minute or until the butter is melted. You may also heat the mixture in a pan if in case you don't have a microwave.
  • Pour the sauce on top of the wings. Add the Parmesan and toss until homogeneously combined.
  • Sprinkle with parsley.

  • Enjoy this as a "pica-pica" on a Saturday night with your friends while enjoying a bottle of ice cold beer, or at a meal with your family. I hope you love it!

    Yum - Oh!


    1. This looks really easy and I'm pretty sure it's delicious. One of the best fried chickens I've ever had is seasoned just with salt and pepper. It's definitely better than the ones with heavy pre-made breading. xx

      1. I agree. The chicken is tasty on its own, and we don't really need to mask its flavor by covering it with breading mix. :)

      2. Totally. BTW, I nominated you for the Liebster Award in my blog. Hope you can check it out. xx

    2. I think I'm gonna try this out. I love chicken wings! :)
