 Ingredients List

  • 20 Chicken wings; tips cut off*
  • 2 c All-purpose flour;
  • -approximately
  • 2 lg Eggs**
  • 1 tb Water***
  • 18 oz KC Masterpiece Original
  • -Flavor BBQ Sauce; or your
  • -favorite
  • 1/4 c Honey; more to taste


* Save these for chicken stock, or toss.

** or about 1/2 cup egg substitute minus the water OR 3 large egg whites
mixed with the water.) *** I used water, as stated, but will try milk next
time. It might add flavor?

Heat a large skillet or use your deep fryer. [I used deep fryer] Heat oil
until it's very hot (around 350-degrees). [I turned the heat up to about
375 degrees. It was taking too long. ;-) ]

Meanwhile, wash the chicken wings, then remove the wing tips. Cut the other
two pieces in half. Shake off the excess water.[I patted try with paper
towels] If you want to cut out the fat, use boneless/skinless chicken
breasts and cut them into bite-size pieces.

Place the eggs (whole eggs or just egg whites) and water into a bowl and
mix well. If you'll be using egg substitute, don't add the water, it's
watery alreadyjust beat it until it's a little foamy. Set aside.

Mix together the BBQ sauce and honey, tasting as you go. Make the sauce as
sweet as you like. I usually start out with 1/4 cup of honey and add more,
tasting as I go. Set aside. I usually use Clover Honey. Put the flour into
a bag [I actually never coated chicken this way, except for Shake N Bake,
but found it worked *great*! I used a gallon size freezer ziplock bag,
sealed almost all the way, blew air into it so there would be "shaking
room", sealed and shook away!] then shake the wings in it, to lightly coat.
Roll the wings in the egg wash, then toss them back into the bag. You want
a fairly heavy coating of flour so the BBQ sauce has something to hang
onto. You may want to dip/shake 2-3 times. [I coated each small batch
differently. I found I didn't like the ones that were heavily coated. Too
much breading for my tastes. I think flour, egg, flour works fine. You can
even skip the egg wash if you really want to.]

Fry the wings until they're golden brown. They don't have to be totally
"done", just browned. You'll be baking them later on, so don't worry about
it. Drain on paper towels. Again, I haven't tried this myself, but it would
work. Either fry the chicken in PAM or a light coating of oil in a
non-stick skillet until the chicken is browned. Don't crowd the skillet, do
them in batches. You have to brown them until they're fairly crisp, or the
coating will fall off when you dip it into the sauce.

Preheat oven to 325-degrees.

Once the chicken pieces are fried (browned) and drained, dip each piece
into the BBQ sauce/honey mixture and place onto cookie sheets. [ I have
discovered parchment paper!! I bought it for making cookies, but since I
spent a long time scrubbing grunge off my baking pan this morning, I
decided to use the paper and hoped it would help. Boy did it!! Clean up was
a *breeze*! I highly recommend this!] Make sure the pieces don't touch each

Bake for 15-20 minutes, [I did 20. Watch out for burning. 18 would have
been best.] or until they no longer look shiny and the chicken tests done
(juices run clear when poked with a knife). [If you fry till golden brown,
I don't think you need to worry about this...I didn't test for doneness and
they were fine.] Baking dries the coating out a bit and sets the coating so
it doesn't fall offsort of like KFC's holding ovens.
