  1. Cut wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, barbecue sauce and honey. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to about 1 cup.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Add wings a few at a time, and shake to coat.
  3. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wings, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Transfer wings to a large bowl; add sauce and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Made this for the football game today & they were a hit! We will definitely be making this again. I didn't quite let the sauce boil. I didn't have the sodium free soy sauce so I took out the salt in the flour. I love salty foods and initially I thought it would be too salty but it ended up being terrific. I can't wait to make them again!"

"Wings were very tasty. Family liked them. I agree that the sauce became very dark. I wonder if using the microwave would help?"

"I gave this recipe 5 stars because it satisfied my husband AND my father. They didn't look like the picture at all, probably due to the BBQ sauce I used. They are VERY sticky. I will make these again."

"These wings had potential. Unfortunately, boiling and reducing the sauce caused the sugars in the honey to camelize and taste a bit on the burnt side."
