The secret to perfectly crispy wings? Boiling water. Yup, you heard that correctly. We're using this unexpected hack to level up game-day wings with no flour required. Toss them in your favorite sauce and enjoy.
2 lbs chicken wings or drumettes
2 cups of boiling water
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 cups of vegetable oil (for frying)
½ stick (4 oz) of melted unsalted butter
½ cup Frank’s Hot sauce
Arrange wings on a sheet tray with a wire rack. Boil water in a kettle and slowly pour over the raw chicken until skin tightens up. Allow chicken to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Heat oil in Family Pan to 375 degrees F. Season wings with kosher salt, cayenne and cracked black pepper. In batches, slowly fry the wings 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Remove and dry on a wire rack lined with paper towels.
Combine melted butter and hot sauce in a stainless steel mixing bowl. Toss wings in sauce to coat. Transfer to plate. Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing.
