Garlic Pepper Chicken Wings are crispy, garlicky, peppery and oh so addictive.
One of the first dinners that Ryan ever made me was chicken wings, because he knew how much I loved them. It was really sweet. I went over to his apartment after work and he was in the kitchen frying the wings. The first thing he said was “These are messy!” And he was right, grease was everywhere. But despite nearly burning his hands off as he tried to turn the chicken wings with a fork, he kept cooking them for me.
After we finished the wings, I offered to do the kitchen clean up and from that point on I have always baked my wings. They still get just as crispy as fried wings but without all the mess. Less oil, less splatter but still crispy and golden brown? It’s a win all around!
Whenever you hear the words “chicken wings” you probably imagine something like this. The red hot spicy wings that they have challenges for. These wings however, are a little different. They are still quite addictive but instead of a spicy hot sauce they are coated in a tangy sauce full of fresh cracked black pepper and fresh chopped garlic.
And when I say garlic, I mean lots of garlic. Like if you aren’t a fan of garlic you should probably just turn away right now. But if you are like me and can’t get enough of the so called “stinky rose”, you need to give these Garlic Pepper Chicken Wings a try. I mean seriously, look at all of this loveliness:
In the world of garlic lovers it doesn’t get much better than that. Am I right?!

Looks so good!! I’m not crazy to eat raw garlic, I’m going to brown the garlic and put in there in last min with sauce and wings while garlic still crispy ;)

Can I replace the white wine vinegar with something else?

Hi Ayesha, are you looking to avoid vinegar all together or just white wine vinegar? If you are open to still using vinegar you can use white distilled vinegar. If you want to avoid vinegar you could sub lemon juice that way you will still get the acidity.

These were so delicious! I was totally skeptical about how crispy they would turn out, as I have only used crumbs before to bread, never milk and flour. But wow!! These were crispy and oh so good!

Thank you Hungry teacher! It is nice to hear that you enjoyed them :)

Yum! I just watched a pgm about making Salt and Pepper Chicken (a famous Taiwanese street snack) yesterday. And now, you made Garlic Pepper Chicken. Oh, I want some now.

This is definitely next “to make” recipe when I’m in the mood for wings.
If you’re in the mood for another type of wing, try these:
Have a happy New Year!
