Crispy deep fried turkey wings. I actually doesn’t get any better than that! These wings are brined for 8 hours before they are fried to golden perfection. Once done, the meat is extremely moist and is practically falling off of the bone. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, we need to check out pulse! Give this recipe a try ASAP. You won’t regret it!
Deep Fried Turkey Wings
Brined for 8 hours and fried to perfection, these turkey wings are the perfect game day treat.
- 2 lbs turkey wings cut into sections
- 1 tbsp poultry seasoning
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 quart buttermilk
- seasoned flour
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp poultry seasoning
- 1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- * enough oil to deep fry with
- Place the turkey wing pieces into a large container. Season the wings with 1 tbsp poultry seasoning, minced garlic, and onion wedges. Pour the buttermilk all over the turkey, and let brine over night, for 8 hours.
- Drain the wings, and discard the buttermilk. Rinse the wings under water, then set aside.
- In a large bowl add the all purpose flour, 1 tbsp poultry seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground black pepper, and seasoning salt. Sift ingredients.
- Coat the wings with the seasoned flour.
- Heat the oil until it reaches approximately 360 F, then slowly drop the wings into the oil.
- Fry the wings until golden brown and completely cooked.
- Place the wings on a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
What kind of oil do you use and how much? Looks good.
I use corn oil, or canola. Enough to deep fry with, depending on what you’re frying in.

I’ll be frying my turkey wings on today (it’s early I know but I’m up preparing my wings). I will be using your recipe. The only thing is, I bought Crisco Vegetable Oil. Do it matter on the type of oil? I really hope it don’t make a difference. This will be my very first time frying turkey wings. Wish me luck!!! Thank you

Can you fry them in vegetable oil or is there a certain oil to use?
Hi Darlene! Yes ma’am, you can use vegetable oil.
Christine Jordan says
What if you don’t have the time to brine in buttermilk for the 8 hours? Will it still come out good?
It will not come out as flavorful.
Ruth Johnson says
You should use a high-resolution oil like a peanut oil because it doesn’t burn fast and it would withstand the amount of time it takes to fry a turkey wing
Is their a specific size that should be used for this recipe? I notice these are rather small compared to your other turkey wing recipes? I apologize ahead of time for all these turkey wing questions I’m posting lol. I think I’m going to base Christmas dinner on all of your recipes. Thanks!
Try a 9×13.
About how long did it take to them
It depends in the size of the wings.
