Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray. Make sure oil returns to temperature before adding the next batch. Sprinkle the wings with the reserved seasoning for extra hot wings.

I plan on making this recipe to take tailgating. I am sure glad I thoroughly read the recipe instructions, unlike g9rocks64 who gave the recipe 2 stars. It CLEARLY says to DIP the chicken in the egg mixture then DREDGE in the flour mixture. I remember my first time cooking, and learned to read the entire recipe through BEFORE I start cooking. Must be amateur night in Harrison.
