Serves: 2 to 4 ~ Yield: 20 wings ~ Total Time: 40 minutes
1 1/4 cups ketchup
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
6 -8 cups vegetable oil
20 pieces chicken wings
1 egg, beaten
1 cup almond milk
1 cup spelt flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until ingredients are well-combined and bring to a boil.
Then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
As sauce is simmering, heat up 6 to 8 cups of oil in a deep fryer set to 350 degrees.
Combine the beaten egg with the milk in a small bowl.
In another small bowl, combine the flour, salt, & pepper.
When oil is hot, dip each wing first in the flour mixture, then into the milk and egg mixture, and back into the flour.
Arrange wings on a plate until each one is breaded.
Fry the wings in the oil for 9-12 minutes or until light, golden brown.
If you have a small fryer, you may wish to fry 10 of the wings at a time. Drain on paper towels or a rack.
When the sauce is done, brush the entire surface of each wing with a light coating of sauce. Serve immediately.
