  9. Add rested wings to large bowl and season generously with salt and pepper.
  10. Prepare a separate bowl with cornstarch for dredging.
  11. In batches, dredge wings evenly, shaking off excess and fry for 10-12 min, or until golden brown and temping internally at 165F.
  12. Rest finished wings on a sheet pan with a wire rack in the oven to keep warm while you continue frying.
