Give your snack time an Italian accent with these herb flavored, crispy Italian chicken wings. To make finely ground cornmeal, simply grind regular cornmeal in your food processor for a few seconds. Use your favorite marinara sauce for dipping, if you like.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely ground white cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, lightly crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 chicken wings, cut in half at joints, removed and discarded tips
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Warm marinara sauce for dipping, optional


  1. Prepare wings for cooking. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, Parmesan, oregano, thyme, basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Coat the wings in the mixture and shake off any excess.
  2. Pour about 1-inch of vegetable oil into a frying pan and heat to 350 degrees F. Fry the wings for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown. You may need to turn frequently near the end for even browning.
  3. Drain the wings on a rack set over a platter.
  4. Serve the wings with warm marinara sauce for dipping, if desired.
