How to get wings crispy?

  • To get the wings crispy without a lot of coating, I season them well and then lightly dust them with flour and a little baking powder using a sifter.
  • YES! Baking powder! It makes them more crunchy.
  • After dusting them with flour, I let them rest for 15 minutes before frying.
  • Resting the wings helps the season and flour to stick to the wings when added to the fryer.
  • After draining the wings, I toss them in melted butter with garlic and honey while they are still hot.

3 ingredients for a quick and easy sauce

The combination of garlic, butter, with honey is a little bit of heaven.  This recipe puts all three of these ingredients together.  When you marry garlic, butter, and honey together, you will not be able to get enough of these wings.
