Our Keto Chicken Wings recipe is a great source of fat easy and pan-fried for those without a deep fryer.

No need for bread crumbs or any other high carb coating as frying the chicken wings with tallow in the pan at a medium to high heat creates a crisp skin.

  • Separate the wings, keeping the drumettes and the middle section. Discard the tip (you’ll now have 20 pieces)
  • In a mixing bowl, marinate the chicken wings in the garlic powder, salt and pepper and allow to sit aside for 15 minutes.
  • Add the tallow to a large non-stick frying pan and heat over medium to high heat.
  • When the tallow has melted and is very hot, add the wing pieces and fry for 5 minutes.
  • Turn the wing pieces over, place a lid on the pan and fry for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and turn the wing pieces, cook without the lid for a further 5 minutes. Depending on the size of the wing pieces, they will be ready. To check if they are ready you can cut though one of the larger pieces and check if the flesh is cooked, or use a meat thermometer and ensure the temperature is above 70C/160F.
  • Remove from the pan. Serve with lemon wedges.
