1 1/4 cups catsup
1/3 cup white vinegar
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 to 8 cups vegetable oil
20 chicken wing pieces
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon MSG
Combine the first nine ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until ingredients are well-combined and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes.
As sauce is simmering, heat up 6 to 8 cups of oil in a deep fryer set to 350 degrees F.
Combine the beaten egg with the milk in a small bowl.
In another small bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper and MSG.
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 8 to 12 minutes or until light, golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
When the sauce is done, brush the entire surface of each wing with a light coating of sauce. Serve immediately.
