The sweet-and-sour sauce in this recipe was originally for pork spareribs, but my family has always enjoyed it this way. The longer the wings sit in the ketchup, ginger and orange marmalade sauce, the better they taste. They can be served warm or cold. -Lora Fletcher, Lyons, Oregon

  • 25 whole chicken wings (about 5 pounds)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups orange marmalade
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Cut chicken wings into 3 sections; discard wing tip section. In a large bowl, combine the flour, seasoned salt and garlic salt. Add chicken wings, in batches, and toss to coat. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, fry wings in oil, in batches, until golden and crispy, 3-4 minutes.
  2. Drain pan drippings; return all chicken to the skillet. Combine the marmalade, ketchup, soy sauce and ginger; pour over chicken and stir to coat. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes.

Test Kitchen Tip
  • Use a second skillet if you're skillet isn't large enough to cook all the wings at one time.
  • Whole Chicken Wings
    Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
