People really love to eat chicken wings. There are so many ways to prepare chicken wings and they make fantastic appetizers and party foods. One of the questions I am often asked is, “How long to cook chicken wings”.
Chicken wings can be cooked using several different methods. I prefer deep frying wings but you can also pan fry your wings or bake them. Let’s take a look at each method and you can decide for yourself which method is best for you.
Before you cook your chicken wings you will need to make sure they are completely thawed. This can be accomplished by letting them sit in the refrigerator for a day or two before cooking. When you are ready to cook your wings, rinse them in cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
If you will be deep frying your chicken wings be sure they are dry before placing them in the hot oil to avoid painful splatters. Heat your oil to 375 degrees. Once the oil is hot you can begin cooking your wings. Fill the fryer basket with a single layer of wings. You want the oil to just cover the wings when lowered into the oil. Lower the wings into the oil slowly and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. This will make a nicely browned chicken wing that is crispy on the outside and juicy and tender inside.
