this is a recipe that my husband learned when he was at the school for the blind. I have since taken to making them for the super bowl game and there are rarely any left.

How To Make game day sweet & sour chicken wings

  • 1
    Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip section. Place cornstarch in a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken wings, a few at a time, and shake to coat evenly. Place eggs in a shallow bowl; dip wings in eggs.

    In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wings for 8 minutes or until golden brown and juices run clear, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels.

    Place chicken wings in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Pour half of the sauce over wings. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Turn wings; top with remaining sauce. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until coating is set. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen. I sometimes double the sauce and serve them over rice.
