"From one of our national supermarkets. Times do not include overnight marinating. I made a half recipe and really enjoyed the crunchy moist wings and when making thought 100 grams of flour was excessive but belief me it is not you will need it all. The only change I would make would be to split the wings into two pieces as a personal preference."

We loved the spiciness of these wings...my batter was on the thick side so I just added a bit of milk to loosen it up some...made for "FYC" tag game...
