Make sure your wings are dry before dredging them in flour, this will keep them from being soggy. The Cornstarch gives the wings a very nice crispy coating Don’t skip the addition of Oil as well, it also helps in crisping up the chicken skin. If you don’t like cornstarch, simply use all purpose flour. Although the Cornstarch gives the wings a nicer finished look.
