One Flew Over The Kookaburra Wing

31 Jan

I came up with this recipe in an attempt to replicate Outback Steakhouse’s Kookaburra wings. They are outstanding!

Time: 35 minutes         Serves: 3


  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tbsp Kernel Season’s Nacho Cheddar popcorn Seasoning**
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp chili powder
  • 1¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¾ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 tsp paprika
  • 1/3 tsp onion powder
  • 1/3 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 dash ground clove
  • 14 chicken wing dings (drummies & flats)
  • oil for frying shopping list
  • 3 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1½ tsp water
  • Ranch and/or bleu cheese dressing
  • celery sticks
  • **Note: I’m sure another brand would work fine, just be sure it’s a cheddar popcorn seasoning.

How to make it

  • Make breading for wings by combining ingredients flour through clove in a medium bowl. Stir well. Dip each wing, one at a time into the breading. Give each one a light coating and arrange on a plate. Let sit uncovered in fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in fry pan. Mix hot sauce & water together in a small bowl/cup.
  • Fry for 7-10 minutes, or until wings are brown.
  • When done, drain wings on paper towels or rack then drop them into a large container with a lid . Pour sauce over wings (start with about half or 2/3 and check for spiciness), cover and shake to coat. Remove with tongs & arrange on plate with Ranch/bleu cheese dressing & celery sticks on side.
