Remove the chicken wing portions from the buttermilk marinade, and discard the remaining marinade. Allow the excess buttermilk to drip from the wings, then press into the cracker crumbs to coat.

Cook in the preheated skillet until the breading is golden brown on the outside, and the chicken wings are no longer pink at the bone, about 12 minutes. Turn them over half way through frying.
