These baked chicken wings are actually fried first. Frying gives the flour coating a crispy texture.
The addition of the cooking sauce brings lots of rich flavor and creates a nice glaze.
This chicken wing recipe is fabulous, but there is one thing I did to make them a bit healthier. First of all, there was a lot of sugar in the recipe. I have cut it down a bit to 1/2 cup. They still taste sweet but not as much. Adjust the amount of sugar up if you want.
The soy sauce, sugar and vinegar combination is a great mix of tang and sweetness without being overpowering.
This chicken wing recipe is really easy to cook and makes a terrific finger food party appetizer or main dish.
