  • at the same time, bring a large pot with the oil to 300 degrees.
  • carefully drop wings into pot, in batches so pan isn’t over-crowded and allow to cook for 5-6 minutes and golden brown. transfer to a paper towel-lined pan. bring oil back up to 300 degrees and fry remaining wings. bring oil to 350 degrees and again in batches fry wings for 5-7 minutes, until brown and crispy.
