How to Make Wings in an Oil-less Fryer

Nothing beats fresh, homemade wings. You get them when they’re still perfectly hot, juicy, crisp and cooked just however you like them. You could grill them, but sometimes it’s nice to let them sit and cook on their own. Sure, you could bake them if you wanted to, but baked wings just don’t have that same taste and can make your house too hot in the summer. The solution? Try switching things up by seasoning and letting the Charbroil® Oil-less Turkey Fryer do the rest of the work for you. The result? Watch the video at the bottom of this blog to see for yourself! Note: These ingredients are just a suggestion.
