I created the wing sauce chicken fry in the spur of the moment.Both hubby and me didnt have chicken for sometime now and were craving to have chicken fry.Both of us love the flavour of Frank's red hot cayenne pepper sauce so i thought why not incorporate this flavour in my chicken fry batter and so thats how i came up with this recipe.This sauce is also used to coat chicken wings and hence the name:).The fry came out soooooooooooooo good and yummmmmmmmmy :).So here is the recipe.

chicken- breasts boneless cut to bite size pieces
all purpose flour-4 tbsp
ginger garlic paste-1 tbsp
soya sauce-1 1/2 tbsp
Frank's red hot cayenne pepper sauce-according to ur taste(i used a lot coz we love the flavor and spiciness of it)
green onions/scallions-2 nos. finely chopped
onions-half a piece.finely chopped
salt and pepper
oil for deep frying


All purpose flour
plain bread crumbs


Mix all the ingredients from all purpose flour to salt & pepper(remember to very lil salt as the hot sauce and soya sauce contains salt) with lil water and make a very thick batter such that it will stick to the chicken pieces.Leave a bit of the green onions for garnishing.Onions give a very nice flavour to the chicken fry.Add the chicken and let it marinate for about 2 hrs.On a plate mix equal quantities of flour and bread crumbs.I didnt have enough flour so i used some bread crumbs also and this combined coating mixture gave a nice sweet crispiness to the chicken.Sweetness from the bread crumbs.
Now take the chicken pieces one by one and coat it with this mixture.Nicely press the chicken on all sides so that the coating sticks to it.
Heat oil in a deep bottom vessel.When the oil gets hot drop the chicken pieces carefully and slowly so that oil doesnt spill out.For extra precaution u can use rubber gloves.Keep in mind not to over crowd the vessel otherwise the chicken will just steam and u wont get a crisp chicken and it will drink a lot of oil too.So the frying should be quick.The chicken will cook fast as they are boneless breasts.Fry it on a slightly medium high flame.Ones they get brown just like in the photo shown above,take it out and put it on a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.Garnish with some green onions.
Serve it Frank's hot sauce or eat it just like that.
Hope u all enjoy it!!!
