Frequently Asked Questions

Is It Better To Fry Or Bake Chicken Wings?

Out of all popular cuts of chicken, the wings have the highest ratio of skin to meat. This is what makes them so flavorsome.

When you deep fry chicken wings, the intricate flavors of the skin can be lost. But, if you roast or bake wings, the skin can caramelize with the fat rendering to create a more intense, complex flavor. 

How Do You Make Crispy Chicken Wings? 

To make your chicken wings as crispy as possible, we recommend that you coat them in cornstarch, some salt, and some baking powder (aluminum-free and not baking soda).

Allow the wings to dry for several hours and then bake them over a rimmed baking sheet on a wire rack.
