- Wash the chicken wings with clean water and let it dry. For cutting the chicken first remove the tip of the wings and cut the joint between the drumette and wingette, reserve the tip for making chicken stocks.

- Get your marinated chicken and coat every piece with flour mixture. Also, shake off excess breading.
- Preheat a large pan with 1-2-inch oil. Once heated fry the wings in batches make sure to not overcrowd the pan to maintain the temperature of the oil. Fry until light brown for about 10-12 minutes. Once done let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
- Double fry the wings for a crispy texture. Set the heat to high and put the wings back to the oil. Fry until crisp and golden brown. Once done transfer it in a wire rack to remove excess oil while making the sauce.
- Preheat a saucepan into medium heat and add butter, garlic, ketchup, hot sauce, sugar, and soy sauce. Reduce the heat to low and mix it well. Stir often and cook until thick.
