Still deciding on your big game menu? Consider these delicious wings and dips from Chef Char Morse!

Follow along with the recipe below and the video instructions above!



  • Peanut oil, vegetable oil or canola oil for frying (about 10 cups)
  • ¾ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes and flats separated


  1. Preheat oven to 250°. Let wings sit at room temperature 30 minutes; this will take off the chill and help them cook evenly.
  2. Pour peanut or canola oil into a large heavy pot to a depth of 2” and fit with a deep-fry thermometer. Heat over medium-high heat until thermometer registers 375°.
  3. Meanwhile, place cornstarch, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Working in 3 batches, dredge wings in cornstarch mixture, shaking off excess, then carefully lower wings into oil.
  4. Fry, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and crust is golden brown and very crisp, 10–12 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack set inside a lined, rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven to keep warm while you fry remaining wings.
  6. Transfer wings to a large bowl, add sauce of choice and toss to coat.
  7. Serve immediately with celery sticks and dips.
