Deep Fry-Day: Wing-It Deep Fryer Test

Well, over the hiatus, I was given the red, fiery beauty: the Rival Wing-It Chicken Wing Deep Fryer. My first thought when I saw it was "Oh YES!!!". My second thought was "this could be dangerous" - not in a burn yourself or the place kind of way, but how I might be deep-frying everything. So far as it stands, I will be starting back on my meal plan this Sunday and won't need to cook until the summer. But I have 2 days where I a) do need to cook, and b) can test out this baby.

The Wing-It deep fryer comes with a basket, tongs, a plastic shaking container and the ability to make my dreams come true. The directions are very simple to follow and in no time I was making dinner. I had company over, Nee, who brought some goodies with her to try and deep fry - which you can find HERE.

I decided that to break in the machine, I needed to have Buffalo wings. Nothing fancy so that I could see what this flaming red fryer could do.

CLASSIC BUFFALO WINGS:


STEP 1:

First, I cut the chicken wings, separating the drumette from the
wing, and then the tip from the wing.




STEP 2:

Drain wings in cold water - pat dry with paper towel




STEP 3:

Turn on deep fryer to max heat - wait until machine says it is ready

STEP 4:

In a sauce pan, melt 1 stick of butter and a bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce

STEP 5:

Place wings in fryer basket and cook wings until they are crispy - they will float to the top. This takes approx 15-20 minutes


STEP 6:

Remove wings into bowl with paper towel to drain excess oil. Remove paper towel and pour Buffalo sauce over wings and toss in bowl


STEP 7:

ENJOY!



These wings turned out perfectly!!! They ended up being a bit small, and I didn't have my Hot Sauce to butter mixture correct. But this was the first time I used real butter, and boy did it make a difference. The chicken had a great crispy skin. For a long time I have made wings in the oven, I have made them in a wok, but really, deep frying is the only way to make them right.

I was in heaven with these just plain. I can't wait to try them breaded!

This machine may just kill me.
But I will go with a smile on my face.
