If you like chicken wings, you're going to love these! They're a little sweet, a little spicy, and oh-so finger lickin' good. The sauce is also great on other cuts of chicken, pork, beef and shrimp.



Special equipment:
a deep-fry thermometer
  1. Combine the sugar, soy sauce, tequila, jalapeños, sliced tangerines and tangerine juice in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce reduces, about 15 minutes. Strain and discard the solids, then return the sauce to the pan. Whisk together the cornstarch and 1 tablespoon cold water in a small bowl. Add to the sauce and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Pour the oil to a depth of 3 inches in a Dutch oven and heat to 375 degrees F.
  3. Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry the wings until golden brown and a thermometer registers 165 degrees F when inserted in the thickest portion (avoid bone), 8 to 10 minutes (The wings will begin to float to the top.)
  4. Remove the wings to paper towels to drain. Place the wings in a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with jalapeño slices and tangerine slices.
