Preheat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees.*

Toss the chicken wings in a bowl with the flour. Fry the wings for 10 minutes or until golden and crispy. Remove from the fryer, drain, and transfer to a bowl. Toss wings with desired amount of sauce.


*Note: If you don’t have a deep fryer, as an alternative, fill a deep pot about 1/3 full with oil and place over medium heat until a frying thermometer reads 350 degrees.
