Wings Indirect

I saw Little Steven’s post about trying to get crispy chicken skin so I decided to mimic his last try. I decided to try some corn starch wings indirect for the Steelers game last night. I bought one of the foodsaver vacuum marinaters but I couldn’t find my hose so I couldn’t use it.

Here are some wings. Half plain and half with Old Bay

Here they are with cornstarch.

Here are the raw wings on the egg.

The wings had a crunchy skin but I prefer direct cooked wings much better.

    Those look very good... do you think it made a difference not using the vac?

    What does the corn starch do on the chicken wings ?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure. I've never done them in the vacuum so I don't have anything to compare.

    They were crispy but it was a different type of crispy than if they were done in a deep fryer. The skin was actually hard to tear when I was eating them.

    I assumed it was to make the skin crispy. I was somewhat mimicking Little Steven's post.
