Asian Chicken Wings
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min./batch
- 2-1/2 pounds whole chicken wings
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

I tried this recipe because I wanted something different, to go along with BBQ wings, and I had all the ingredients on hand. I love it when a great recipe doesn't take anything "special". This is such a good sauce, and I'll make it again and again, but I especially liked the very easy coating for the wings. Lots of flavor, although I may add a bit of garlic powder next time. You can use any kind of sauce with this coating. Try it, you really will like it!

These were a hit with my family. Very easy and tasty as well. I added extra hot sauce as we like our food with some kick. Will make again and again.
