Fried Chicken Wings

In response to Rico's request for more culinary travel blogging, a recipe. Tamales, tacos, and tortas this is not - I refuse to be constrained by Western notions of "authenticity". Alitas de pollo are a delicious and popular dish, especially in the north. Decidedly not vegetarin, but I had to listen to a rooster yodling (cockle doodling?) at 6am every day for 4 months (in the middle of a city of 20 million!!), so really, they owe me one.

- chicken wings
- flour
- oil for frying
- salt and pepper
- your favourite bbq sauce

Coat chicken in flour. Place in a single layer in a pot of HOT oil for 10ish minutes. Remove, drain, and coat in your favourite sauce. Serve with salad and/or rice so you don't feel like such a pig. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
