KFC Honey BBQ Wings




Ohhhh, these are fantastic!! We got the recipe from copykat.com (great site, by the way!). They are in the oven as I write, and I can't wait to have them again! The first time we had these, we used the exact directions; the second time, we used a deep-fryer, and it simplified the process quite a bit! Totally worth it either way. Plus, we loved that the chicken we bought had so much more meat on them than the wings you can buy at KFC or most other places!

2 lbs chicken wings OR boneless, skinless chicken strips or
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk + 1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar- let it sit for 5 minutes before using)
vegetable oil (for deep frying

BBQ sauce:
1 cup Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp ketchup
1 tsp liquid smoke

1. Mix flour, salt, and pepper in a bowl, and set aside. Place buttermilk in separate bowl. Heat oil for frying (it should be 375 degrees) and dip chicken strips in flour, then in buttermilk, and then in flour again. Place in hot oil. Never overcrowd chicken. Fry until lightly golden brown. Remove chicken and drain.
2. Preheat oven to 350. Place BBQ sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan. Mix thoroughly  and simmer on low heat, stirring frequently for 20 minutes. Let sauce cool slightly, then dip one chicken piece in sauce at a time, and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed lightly with non-stick spray. Place in preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
