I’m 100% undoubtedly a fan of Applebee’s boneless wings, which is why I had to figure out how to remake these and have them taste as close as possible to the real thing.  With several trial and error I have derived the solution and am happy to say these things are spot on, minus sitting under a heat lamp for 30 minutes.
