Fried chicken wings Undercooked-- Was Electric Fryer the culprit?

Hi, guys.

Just got back from frying wings, and I couldnt help but notice that while the outside was fried to PERFECTION-- the inside still had a bit of red to it, the bones were VERY hard to pull apart, as well as a lot of the meat being tough to pull off the bone.

Obviously from the signs-- the meat was undercooked.
I believe it was the electric fryer..

Here's a rundown of what I did-- I took the wings out at 12:30, in which it was already in the fridge, thawed and took each individual wing out of the bag and set them out to come up to room temp.

at 3:00 I put my spices on the wings.
3:30-- I used the "flour- then dipped in egg wash-and then flour again" routine.

Used the hamilton beach electric fryer and set it on 375 degrees-- basically the highest setting it would go.

dropped in only the amount that could fit in as one SINGLE layer on the frying tray-- i.e. 4 wings per batch.

Fried each about 5-7 minutes.

Where did I go wrong?
I believe it was the error of the electric fryer. Has anyone else had bad experiences with an electric fryer?
