Prep time: 4 hours 0 min

Cooking time: 10 mins

Total time: 4 hrs 10 min

  • Around 24 chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup or more lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup favorite seasoning or rub for chicken wings
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Mix seasoning ingredients together in a non-reactive container. Wash and cut off the wing tips, and then the drum, from each 2-bone wing. Add prepped chicken parts to container and allow them to marinate at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Place all of the wings in The Big Easy® cooking basket. (Use either the EZ-Out Cooking Rack or the Half Racks to fit all the wings in the basket.)
  3. Place the loaded cooking basket into The Big Easy®, cover with the lid and set heat to high. Let wings cook for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Pay close attention to the wings, turning the basket and using tongs to move the wings around for even cooking. Serve wings with your favorite dipping sauce.
  4. Note: The Big Easy® is an oil-less way to fry using infrared technology.
