Season with pepper. Cover. Refrigerate until required. 2 Remove and discard wing tips from chicken. Cut chicken wings in half at the joint. Combine ﬂour, paprika and salt in a bowl. Season with pepper. Coat wings in ﬂour mixture, shaking off excess. 3 Pour enough oil into a large saucepan or wok to come 5cm up the side. Heat over high heat (oil should reach 180ºC).
