    7 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, sugar, water, garlic, lemon juice and chili sauce; set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
Editor’s Note: 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. Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

    Delicious! I loved these, and they were very flavorful and not at all bland.

    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.

    A bit bland, but a keeper for possibilities
