After tasting this easy chicken dish, my friend begged for the recipe. It's so addicting! This one's great for parties or served with rice for dinner. Senon Ray Posadas - Chicago, Illinois


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Szechuan chili sauce
  • 2-1/2 pounds whole chicken wings
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • Oil for deep-fat frying


  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. Drain on paper towels. Add chicken to soy sauce mixture, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
Self-rising Flour-1 cup
As a substitute for 1 cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
Whole Chicken Wings
Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
