Author Notes

These jerk chicken wings are made using the double frying method. The wings are first fried at a lower temperature to get the inside nice and juicy. They are completely cooled and then fried a second time at a higher temperature for a crispy, restaurant worthy exterior. The wings are then coated with homemade Jamaican jerk sauce to add a delicious, spicy flavour. —Meals by Mavis

What You'll Need
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1/3 cup jerk sauce (recipe link:
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 liter vegetable or canola oil (for frying)
  1. Heat the oil to 250°F (120°C) in a large heavy bottomed pot or a deep fryer.
  2. Place a cooling rack on top of a flat baking pan like a cookie sheet and set aside near the fryer.
  3. Season the chicken wings with the salt, then fry them in the oil in batches for 8 minutes each batch.
  4. Remove the chicken wings from the oil after 8 minutes and place them on the cooling rack. Let the wings cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  5. Heat the oil to 350°F (175°C) and fry the chicken wings in batches a second time for 8 minutes or until the wings are crispy and golden with an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C).
  6. Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Pour the jerk sauce into the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on low heat.
  7. Pour the wings and the jerk sauce into a mixing bowl and toss together to coat the wings with the sauce. Serve with ranch dressing as a dipping sauce.
