Crispy Boneless Chicken Wings
Crispy Boneless Chicken Wings are one of the most delicious ways to eat chicken. First of all, I absolutely adore chicken wings, I mean, the flavors are almost endless and the same applies to the dipping sauce. I love this dish because you can make it easily at home and serve with an endless array of dipping sauces. Also, I like to serve mine with blue cheese dressing, ranch and some extra hot sauce on the side.
They have a perfectly crispy, golden cover with the juiciest and most tender inside. You will avoid all the mess that comes with bone-in chicken wings. However, you will not give up on amazing taste and flavor. You will still lick your fingers clean because they are so delicious!
When it comes to making extra crispy wings, you will have to work with a hot pot of oil. One thing I don’t like is greasy wings and that oil splattering and making a messy kitchen. Hence, I love having the wings laid on a paper towel to absorb all the greasy oil.

Can you make Crispy Boneless Chicken Wings ahead of time?
Yes, this dish can be easily made ahead and then stored in the fridge. It is best to do everything but frying the chicken pieces. Simply prepare the dish but do not fry it. Once ready to eat, fry them quickly before serving along with coating them in hot pepper sauce.
Can you bake the wings instead of frying?
Baking them is a great alternative, and also a healthier one. Just remember, if you want to bake them, they will not be as crispy as frying. However, they will be equally tasty and delicious. To bake, place a foil-lined baking sheet over the pan, and bake them at 400 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink in the center.

Are boneless chicken wings really wings?
Well, the truth is that, no, they are not “real” wings. They are larger chunks of breast meat, less messy, but just as delicious as real wings.
