THERE'S no denying that lockdown has been something of an emotional rollercoaster – made worse by the fact that we can't order KFC at a moment's notice.
But until our favourite fast food chain is back in action, we've had to make do with our homemade versions of their popcorn chicken and gravy.

And now you can make your own version of KFC's spicy Zinger wings with this super simple recipe.
First shared on the RCS website, this recipe makes a serving platter of 24 chicken wings – and you make them as spicy as you like.
To start, boil the chicken in a saucepan with half the chilli sauce and let simmer for 20 minutes.
Depending on how spicy you like your chicken wings, you can either use two cups of chilli sauce or half this amount.
Homemade Spicy Wings ingredients:
- 24 chicken wings
- 1 cup flour
- 4 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups hot chilli sauce (depending on preference)
Then, remove the chicken wings and coat in the other half of the chilli sauce and marinate for up to two hours.
While you're waiting for the chicken to marinate, mix the flour and spices together in a bowl.
After the two hours has passed, crack your two eggs in another bowl and coat your chicken in the dry ingredients.
In order to build up the batter, give the chicken an egg wash in your other bowl and repeat the process.

Next, heat a generous amount of oil in a frying pan and fry until they're gold and crispy all over.
And to get rid of any excess oil, dry the chicken wings on a piece of paper towel.
And there you have it! A delicious serving platter which can be shared between four people – or consumed in one sitting by yourself. No judgement here…
