Here’s a quick handy guide to help you fry up some of the best wings at home.
I’m sure that you have had plenty of wings in your lifetime. Some must have been awesome, and then you will always get that batch that will have skin that is rubbery or the sauce won’t stick to the wing. So we wanted to guide you into making the best wings at home, and doing it quick and simply.
Start with your wings. Wings always work best fresh, but if you have frozen wings make sure you thaw them out and they are not too wet.
Setup your deep fryer with either canola or vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees. If you don’t have a deep fryer, you can do this on a stove top in a pot. Simply fill the pot with about 2 inches of oil, and heat on medium to 350. It’s best to monitor the temperature with a candy thermometer for best results.
Take a bowl and pour in some flour. Use your judgement on the amount but start small and you can always add more. Place the wings in the bowl of the flour and lightly coat all of the wings in the flour.
Once floured, then use tongs and place the wings in the fryer or pot. Be careful of any oil spatter, and place in around 6 wings at a time for a standard pot. For larger fryers, you can add more wings at once. As the wings are added, it will drop the temperature, so try to maintain a solid 350-375 temperature. You don’t want it to be too low or too high. If it’s too hot, you will cook the outside and still have raw chicken on the inside.
Using your tongs, flip the wings in the pot/fryer occasionally. Cook time will be approximately 8 to 10 minutes. The wings will be done once their internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once the wings are done, remove them from the pot/fryer with your tongs onto a dish some paper towels to soak up the excess oil.
Once the excess oil has been drained, then place the finished wings in an empty bowl. Place in your favorite sauce, and toss the wings completely in the sauce – and now the wings are READY TO EAT
