This past Saturday we made chicken wings in the deep fryer for the very first time - oh, my - they are just like you would have in any wing joint - delicious and crispy. Now, I know it's not something we will be having that often but what a treat - my husband got to take four leftovers wings for his lunch today, lucky him is all I can say.
We never really thought of doing wings in the deep fryer before - pretty much all we use it for are egg rolls, calamari and fish for fish 'n chips, we've been making our chips in the oven for a few years now - light and fluffy - now, that is another great recipe! I had been making wings in the oven up until Saturday and that recipe is nothing to complain about either, I blogged about these tasty carmelized wings, it's a great recipe to try as well! I don't think over the years I have even made wings that much, except back in the 80's - I made my wings with Shake 'n Bake BBQ - which my kids never liked!!! I know they would like these though!!!!
The original recipe for the Crispy Honey Garlic Chicken Wings comes from Rock Recipes - just click right here and you can see it - we followed this recipe exactly - I used the split wings and we cooked each batch for approximately 20 minutes.
Here they are - all coated up and ready to go in the fryer!!
Cooked and tossed in the honey garlic mixture - they are sooo good! We rate them a 10 out of 10!!! And, don't they look nice in Pyrex??
