The best crispy BBQ chicken wings recipe

Terry Pomerantz always cooks crispy BBQ chicken wings with ingredients that are easy to find in most grocery stores.

As for quantities, like many chefs, Terry likes to “wing” it –pun intended!-, without measuring out all of the ingredients. “Firstly, I would rather use less ingredients than too many. I taste often and I adjust some of the ingredients as I go along, until it tastes as good as it does in a restaurant… or better!”


  • Chicken wings (36 for 4 people)
  • Store bought BBQ sauce
  • 5 cups of flower
  • White Pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • A bit of smoked paprika
  • Garlic salt and garlic powder.


  • In a double boiler, cook the chicken wings with vapor until they are about ¾ of the way done.
  • Once cooking is about ¾ of the way, remove the chicken wings from the double boiler.
  • Allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  • Cover the chicken wings with flour.
  • In a bowl, mix together all of the other dry ingredients (BBQ sauce, white pepper, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, garlic salt, garlic powder).
