Optional: Thinly sliced green onions and lime wedges
Cut wings into 3 sections; discard wing tip sections. In a large saucepan, combine syrup, chili sauce, lime juice and mustard. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to about 1 cup.
Meanwhile, in a large shallow dish, combine flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Add wings, a few at a time, and toss to coat.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wings, a few at a time, 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Transfer wings to a large bowl; add sauce mixture and toss to coat. Serve immediately, with sliced green onions and lime wedges if desired.
