Irene's Irresistible Chicken Wings

This recipe comes from my sister in law.
 I need to warn you though, it is not recommended for those watching their diets. 
However, they are the first to disappear at a party. 
They are very good served as an appetizer  or with rice and a salad.

  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings or drumettes
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  1. Beat eggs with a whisk in a shallow bowl. Put flour in another shallow bowl.
  2. Heat margarine on until melted in fry pan.
  3. Dip each wing into egg and then into flour, coating well.
  4. Fry wings on medium high heat until golden brown, turning once.
  5. Remove wings to a 9x13 inch baking pan, packing them tightly in one layer.
  6. Combine sauce ingredients in pot or in a large microwaveable bowl.
  7. Bring sauce to a boil and simmer only until sugar is dissolved.
  8. Pour sauce over wings.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour, baste frequently.
  10. They are done when the chicken meat is tender and the sauce is syrupy.
They are very good hot or cold.


  1. That looks delicious! I bet my husband will want to do that recipie. He want to bring wings to every party, but only handmade ones that he is proud of.

  2. Beautiful the plate of delicious looking food!
    I don't ever cook chicken wings but would like to try this recipe.

  3. I LOVE chicken wings...Looks fabulous!

  4. I'd love to sit down to that wonderful looking plate of food. I usually have a bag of frozen wings in the freezer...I'll have to pull out a bag and try a new wings recipe. I have been stuck on my original that I posted awhile back...but it's good to try something new. This would be a great games night food...Go Canucks Go!!! Kathy

  6. I am thinking these are a good make ahead item for the son! Even the fridge door and he'd be right in there! Yum yum yum! Thanks for the recipe. I don't make wings enough and this is a good recipe, I can tell from the ingredients!

  7. Your picture looks so great! I can see those disappear quickly.

  8. Our family eats a lot of chicken! And I do mean a lot! This is a fab recipe...and if I may add...the plate of the finished product looks divine!

  9. This looks amazing. I was asking about a recipe a while back, and now we have one...Yea! We love wings.

  10. These look delicious!
    Thanks for sharing!

  11. Chicken wings. . .yummy .. maybe we can have a hockey series win that would work perfectly with these.

  12. I made these last night but rather used boneless skinless thighs. They worked great! I served them wiht the left over Chinese food that was left from the night before. Delicious!

  13. These look yummy and I would like to make them for our Christmas party this weekend. I am wondering why you use margarine in the recipe? Is it because of the heat used to fry them? Could I use butter?

  14. Margarine doesn't burn as quickly as butter does. That's the only reason. You could certainly use butter if you are careful not to burn it.

  15. These were GREAT!! We had our christmas party last night and I did stick with the margarine so that I didn't have 4 pounds of burned butter wings. Everyone liked them! My only suggestion to anyone that is trying them out for a party is to give yourself plenty of time for the browning...which I didn't and was scrambling a bit with the rest of the hot appetizers when my guests were arriving. Someone commented that 'they are so good, the meat just falls off the bone.' Thanks for the great recipe. I will make these again for sure!!

  16. I have a party coming up this weekend and would like to make these wings. I am wondering if they could be made a few days ahead and then reheated for the party? Is this a dish that gets better with time or best made fresh?

    1. Of course they are always best hot our of the oven but I often make them a day or 2 ahead and reheat them. Just be sure to baste them while they are reheating.

    2. One of my families favorite. I did use boneless thighs instead of wings, they were amazing!!!

  17. I have made these wings several times now. I am not usually a wing fan but these have changed my mind. They are fabulous.
