The Spicy Cajun Fried Chicken Wings are super easy to make because they use Bisquick as their coating! (Jump directly to the recipe.)

The minute I start prepping chicken wings, AJ gets EXCEEDINGLY excited and starts asking me what sort of wings I’m making. I actually try not to make wings too often. As much as we both love them, we probably don’t need eat wings THAT often…because if we had the opportunity, we’d make them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And it’s double trouble for me when I figured out that I could make them Bisquick as a coating because that shortens the prep time considerably. But with that genius shortcut, I found myself making Spicy Cajun Fried Chicken Wings which AJ gobbled up way too fast.

Growing up in St. Louis, we always had a box of Bisquick floating in the back of the kitchen cabinet. It was my mom’s go-to box mix for pancakes. But once I got a little older I started to play around with it in the kitchen. Cakes, biscuits and waffles all started out with the Bisquick. Of course, soon, I was baking and cooking from scratch but I have a fondness for the quick and easy shortcut that the yellow box always promised.

It had been awhile since I had bought Bisquick and it was nostalgic fun for me to open it up and play with it again. And though I knew it had other uses beyond pancakes and biscuits, it wasn’t until I took a look at the ingredients and realized it would be the perfect super-easy coating for fried chicken wings! Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing is up for debate though. Because quick cooked wings are a dangerous thing in this household…

We had Bisquick in our house too. Ever since our kids grew up and moved out of the house we still have one stuck somewhere. 🙁 We used to make “oven” fried chicken with the Bisquick. We’d set the timer on the oven and the chicken would “fry” while we were at evening Christmas mass. Once a year — the rest of the time was the good old fashion way– in peanut oil! And I agree with you when it comes to wings. We love them but don’t indulge too often. I’m going to have to dig out our Bisquick and try your recipe. Have a great day!!

Yum! Who doesn’t love fried wings!?!

Spicy, crispy, savory wings. Yum!
Might marinate the wings overnight. Great pics! Cool idea!
Thank you, Kevin.

Any reason why the wings couldn’t marinate in the buttermilk?
