Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, sugar, water, garlic, lemon juice and chili sauce; set aside.
  2. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. Place flour in another large resealable plastic bag; add chicken wings, a few at a time, and shake to coat.
  3. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry chicken, a few pieces at a time, for 8 minutes or until golden brown and juices run clear, turning occasionally.

"I'd agree with riche that this was a little bland, also the sauce didn't really stick to the wings all that well.The sauce has definite possibilities for alterations, though."
