These Whiskey Glazed Chicken Wings are crispy fried to perfection! It’s all about the addicting whiskey glaze on these chicken wings, get the napkins ready!
My Favorite Whiskey Glaze For Fried Recipes!
There’s just something about wings that says party food to me. Or game time food. Watching the game with a whole plate of wings in front of me – it doesn’t get much better.
These Whiskey Wings are a take on the Chicken Fried Ribs with Whiskey Glaze that we made. They were crazy good. And some people thought I was crazy – who would ever think to deep fry a rib but me?
Until they tasted them that is.
The whiskey glaze is a recipe all by itself that you might want to have handy. It’s a sauce that would be good on all kinds of things like instead of using BBQ sauce on your pulled pork, toss it with this whiskey glaze. Don’t want to fry? Grill up some chicken and pour the glaze all over it. Use it as a dip for chicken fingers…or drizzle it over steak before serving.
But back to the wings…
How to Make the Best Fried Chicken Wings Ever
First I seasoned these wings then baked them. It’s an extra step but then the wings are cooked through and they only have to spend a couple of minutes in the fryer just to crisp up the coating.
Just a side note, if you stopped at this point and dipped these oven-baked wings in that whiskey glaze you’d have some awesome tasting wings. IF you wanted to skip the deep fry.
But I have to ask you to try the deep fry this time…you won’t be disappointed….
So after you bake them, coat them in some seasoned flour and then the can take a dip in the hot oil.
Let them drain off and cool a little and then toss them in that whiskey glaze.
Lot’s of napkins for these wings…and lots of beer!

These wings are deep fried and tossed in an amazing homemade whiskey glaze. An easy chicken wings recipe that’s so addicting there won’t be any left!
- 3 lbs. chicken wings, separated
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons BBQ Dry Rub (Store bought or use OUR RECIPE!)
- Kosher salt to taste
- Vegetable or canola oil for frying
For the Whiskey Glaze
- 6 cloves of garlic, grated with a hand grater or chopped very fine
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 cup pineapple juice
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1/2 cup whiskey
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoons of water
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Season the wings generously with 1/4 cup of the dry rub seasoning. Our recipe has salt in it but if you’re using store bought you might want to add salt as well.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until browned.
- While the wings are in the oven you can start the glaze. Heat the oil in a small pan and cook the garlic for 30 seconds, careful not to let it burn.
- Carefully add the whiskey and let it reduce for 2 minutes.
- Next add the rest of the glaze ingredients (except the cornstarch mixture) and cook, simmering for 10 minutes.
- Pour in the cornstarch mixture to thicken the glaze. Bring to a boil and cook for another 10 minutes, then cover to keep warm and set aside.
- Heat a large pot filled only halfway with oil over medium heat. Combine the flour and the remaining 2 tablespoons of the dry rub seasoning in a large bowl. Coat the wings in the flour, shaking off the excess and place them on a board until the oil is ready.
- Once the oil temperature reaches 350º, fry the wings for 2-3 minutes until the coating is light brown in color and crispy.
- Toss the wings in the whiskey glaze and serve immediately.
If you don’t have a thermometer for the oil, stick the handle of a wooden spoon in the oil. If it bubbles then your oil is ready.
Alternately, if you don’t want to fry, you can stop after the wings have been baked, skip the flour coating and just toss them in the whiskey glaze and serve.
