  • 1 Large bowl
  • 1 Medium skillet
  • Tongs


  • 12 pieces chicken wings (6 whole wings divided in half) drumettes, flats or both
  • 1 cup light beer
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground chili pepper

For the Garnish:

  • parsley or sliced green onions
  • sliced onion red or yellow onions


  • Prepare ingredients by cutting and trimming the chicken wings into pieces.
  • Wash wings, pat dry with paper towels and place in a large bowl. Add salt and spices to the bowl. Mix well with chicken wings and set aside for ten minutes.
  • Heat a frying pan with the vegetable oil over medium heat. Place the chicken in the skillet on a single layer. Fry on medium heat until crispy.
  • Turn the wings over and continue cooking until the wings are cooked through and the skin is crispy.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and add the beer carefully. It will boil vigorously.
  • Return the skillet to the stove and continue to cook until the liquid is completely evaporated.
  • When the beer has evaporated, turn the wings several times so that they are glazed on all sides.
  • Remove the chicken wings from the skillet and place on a serving platter or shallow serving bowl. Garnish with the thinly sliced onion and parsley.
  • Place the platter on the table and watch as the wings disappear!
