  • Heat a heavy bottom pan or cast iron skillet. Add vegetable oil
  • Spread the chicken wings in a single layer. Cook undisturbed on medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Turn the wings and cook further 4-5 minutes. The wings should feel crispy and look light golden brown in color.
  • Remove the wings and put on a wired rack while you make the sauce.
