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:
First, I cut the chicken wings, separating the drumette from the
wing, and then the tip from the wing.
Drain wings in cold water - pat dry with paper towel
Turn on deep fryer to max heat - wait until machine says it is ready
In a sauce pan, melt 1 stick of butter and a bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce
Place wings in fryer basket and cook wings until they are crispy - they will float to the top. This takes approx 15-20 minutes
Remove wings into bowl with paper towel to drain excess oil. Remove paper towel and pour Buffalo sauce over wings and toss in bowl
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.
