  3. In large frying pan or deep-fat fryer, heat 1-inch of oil to 360°F (180°C).
  4. Fry wings in batches, without crowding, for about 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; keep warm.
  5. Once all the wing are fried, add them to the bowl with the melted butter and hot sauce mixture and gently toss to coat all pieces.
