Directions

In a medium sauce pan, stir together all of the ingredients on medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Once the sauce comes to a summer, turn the heat down to low and let the sauce simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the sauce into a large bowl and set aside.

For the chicken, preheat the over to 450F. Combine the flour, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder in a large bowl and set aside. Whisk together the egg and milk in a small bowl and dip each piece of chicken in the mixture, then roll in the flour mixture until thoroughly coated.

Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray thoroughly with cooking spray. Place the wings on the sheet, then bake the wings for 30 minutes, turning them once half-way throught, until lightly browned and cooked all the way through. Thoroughly coat your chicken wings in the sweet & smoky sauce and serve hot.
