Skip the fryer.

Frying wings is fast, but using this traditional cooking method has its downsides. The biggest, of course, being the searing-hot, apron-staining oil that will, no matter how careful you are, find a way to splatter your stove and your person. But there's another way: Bake your wings. It takes a bit longer, but the results are delicious and you'll save so much time on cleanup. Here, our best recipes for crispy baked wings.
