2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour for coating
3/4 cup oil for frying
1/4 cup margarine
6 tablespoons soy sauce
6 tablespoons water
2 cups white sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Pour beaten egg into a shallow dish or bowl; do the same with the flour. Heat oil and margarine in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Dip wings in egg, then flour, then fry until browned and crisp. Lay browned wings in an 11-by-14-inch baking dish.
To make sauce: In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, water, sugar and vinegar. Blend well and pour sauce over chicken.
