Deep Fried Chicken Wing Help??

  • 9

I purchased a deep fryer and the instructions that came with it do not explain well how to make wings. I was looking to see what the best methods are from others who deep fry their wings. Do you put a batter on your wings, fry them as is? Spice them before/after cooking? Any insight anyone has would be much appreciated.

  1. Well, what kind of wings are you trying to make? whether you bater or not, what spices to use, when to spice, etc is going to depend on what you are trying to accomplish.

    1. Depends on what kind of wings you want. For buffalo wings, fry 'em nekkid and sauce when done. Just make sure they're dry before you fry.

      1. Not what you're asking (so beat me!) but I haven't used my fryer in some years. A CH-friend recommended using a DO and that has worked great. I really need to donate the fryer.

        1. I am a Buffalo wing purist so I never, EVER batter or bread. Just toss thawed, towel-dried wings in the fryer for 12 mins or so at 350-375, then sauce.

          1. If you're looking to do KFC wings, them yes you batter them


            1. I use Alton Brown's fried chicken recipe using wings. Makes excellent wings.

              1. you'll probably get many suggestions.
                I dump them naked in the FryGrandaddy sometimes other times I dredge in seasoned flour then dump in. then there are times that I bake naked or not, always different for me.

                1. salt, pepper then deep fry them. toss in your favorite sauce. bbq, honey mustard, buffalo wings sauce sweet and sour, teriyaki...oh the list goes on and on.....going to get me some wings. good luck with yours.
