Q:

For how long should a capon cook?

A:

Quick Answer

Capons, which are castrated roosters and are slightly larger than typical fresh chickens, should cook for about 12 minutes per pound, although this time can vary depending on whether or not the capon is stuffed or not. For example, an 8-pound capon that is not stuffed should roast for about 90 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meat registers 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Full Answer

Because of the added cooking time and the risk of food-borne illness, stuffing any bird, such as a capon, is not recommended. One way to roast a capon is to cook it at high heat, such as 450 degrees, for a brief time, then finish it in a moderately hot oven at 350 degrees.

    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. Frozen chicken wings can be deep-fried in about 15 minutes.
