Some days you just want an easy meal. A search-the-fridge-and-freezer-and-cook-whatever-you-can-find kind of meal. So on the days you reach for the frozen chicken fingers (we all do it!), maybe spice up the meal with the best oven fries your money can give you.
These wedges do take a bit of prep but the crispy outside and soft and warm insides will be worth all the effort, I swear! The trick it to boil ’em for a minute or so before you toss with the toppings. Trust me on this and do not skip this step or your wedges will take much too long in the oven, and who has time for waiting?
