KFC's Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

Heat a large skillet or use your deep fryer. Heat oil until it's very hot (around 350-degrees). See comments, below.

Meanwhile, wash the chicken wings, then remove the wing tips (there's no meat on this part - save it for soup or toss it in the trash); cut the other two pieces in half. Shake off the excess water. 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 already - just 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. Start out with 1/4 cup of honey and add more, tasting as you go. Set aside. Use Clover Honey, use whatever kind you can get there.

Put the flour into a bag, 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.

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. 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. Make sure the pieces don't touch each other.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they no longer look shiny and the chicken tests done (juices run clear when poked with a knife). Baking dries the coating out a bit and sets the coating so it doesn't fall off - sort of like KFC's holding ovens.

20 Chicken Wings (tips removed)
2 cups All-purpose Flour (approximately)
2 large eggs mixed with 1 tbs water (or about 1/2 cup egg substitute - minus the water)
1 bottle KC Masterpiece Original BBQ Sauce (use your favorite local brand if you can't find KC's)
1/4 cup Honey(or to taste -see comments below)
