Recipe Time: 02:30

Temperature : 150F / 65.6C



  1. Set your Anova Precision Cooker to 150ºF/65.5ºC.
  2. Season your wings with salt & pepper.
  3. Place into a zip-locking bag and use the immersion method to release as much air as possible from the bag before completely sealing.
  4. Make sure the wings are in a single layer in the bag and place in the bath. Set your timer for 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Finishing Steps

  1. Remove wings from bath and bag and pat dry with paper towels or kitchen towel.
  2. Place on a wire rack and air dry to room temperature.
  3. Toss with 2 tablespoons cornstarch, return to wire rack, and place uncovered in refrigerator overnight to increase dryness.
  4. When ready, using either a deep fryer or a deep-sided pan, heat oil to 350 - 375ºF/176 - 190ºC and fry for 5 minutes until golden.
  5. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels or paper bag, and toss in your sauce of choice. Enjoy!
