-In a shallow dish make your crumb mixture. You can add any herbs if you like, I added some of the masterfood pizza mix, you can add anything you like (parsley, chives, oregano, thyme, rosemary, etc.)

-Meanwhile heat the oil to 180 degrees Celsius.

-Now take one wing from the marinade and egg mixture, dredge in the coating mix and put it on a plate. Pile all the wings by following the same procedure.

-Fry in 2 – 3 batches (6 at a time) for 4 minutes or until crispy and brown.
