    How long do I deep fry chicken wings?

    A:

    Deep-fried chicken wings typically take about seven to 12 minutes to obtain a browned crunchy coating and cook all the way through. Variables such as oil temperature and coating can also determine the cooking time, however, because chicken wings are small and quick cooking, the cooking time is typically based on the desired darkness of the coating rather than doneness.
