If fried foods are prepared properly (cooked at the correct temp for the correct amount of time) then they absorb very little oil and thus are not as bad for you as bad fried food which has been cooked at the wrong temp/time thus absorbing a lot of oil and being less healthy for you.

I love it! This forum IS like a family! Everybody "feeds" off of everyone else (pun intended) . I wish I had more time to spend online with my newest family. You'll love it here rick32.

I agree with the majority too. I use Canola for all my frying. Good neutral flavor that won't spoil the spicing of your food.

i love wings too, but i don't fry them on the stove top.

i drizzle mine with canola oil in a big mixing bowl and season them lightly with salt/pepper, granulated garlic, and cinnamon. then, i give the whole bunch a nice "massage" in a huuuuuge mixing bowl-making sure all have a light coating of oil and seasoning.

then, off to a 425 F oven.

about 45 min later, they are crispy-just as if i fried them. a LOT less oil, easier to cook, etc.

try it out.
