These wings are a definite touchdown on gameday! Show your turkey wings a little love by spicing them up and deep frying them for the perfectly cooked wing; crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Here is a little tip: for larger wings, pierce the skin to ensure wings cooked throughout.

      No flour in this recipe. These wings cook longer than chicken and any breading like flour will burn before turkey wing is done inside. Fry them “naked”!
