    I’ve tried this and it worked very nicely. I also happen to have learned the technique from the guys at anchor grill which is extremely simple: deep fry chicken party wings in 350F oil until they float and are golden brown. meanwhile heat up the sauce in some butter, bringing it to a boil in a separate large sauce pan. when the wings are done frying, drain briefly then dump into the other pot and toss until fully coated, then toss a little more until they soak up the sauce. That’s it. not having the breading and allowing the skin to get crunchy as well as letting the sauce caramelize really works out nicely.
