How do you get crispy chicken wings?

You can make crispy chicken wings by using corn flour and egg.
Dust the wings with corn flour or make a batter (slurry) of corn flour with water and coat the chicken wings.

Then dip the chicken wings into a beaten egg mixture and coat with bread crumbs or corn flakes and deep fry till crisp golden.

Corn flour is the main ingredient to make a crispy chicken wings.

How do you know when the chicken wings are done in a deep fryer?

You can deep fry the chicken wings in medium hot oil till crisp golden . The wings would start to float over the oil.

Started to float over the oil is a sign that they are done frying. Also they are no pink at the bones and the juices run clear.

You can inserted an instant read thermometer into the thickest part of the wings near the bone . And the reading should be around 165° degree F ( 74° C) then your wings are done completely.a

What is the best oil for frying chicken wings?

All natural oils like peanut oil , vegetable oil are having a good high smoke point. So they are good choice for frying chicken wings.

Should I boil wings before frying?

I don't think it is good to boil chicken wings before frying. Wings are very small and soft in texture so you don't need to boil them. Just deep fry them in medium flame hot oil to perfection.
