Comfort Food Essentials:Twice-Cooked Chicken wings

Andy Anderson !


Does the world really need another chicken wing recipe… Sure, why the heck not.

You bake them once in the oil to give them that crispy texture, and then you can put them in a baggie and drop them in the fridge or freezer. When you need them, simply pull them out, allow them to get to room temperature, and bake them.

The baking helps to render out some of the fat without losing any of that yummy fried crispness. It's the best of both worlds.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
