Honey fried chicken?

Many years ago, I had some chicken wings that were called honey fried wings. There was defo a sweetness and the coating was crispy and smooth. They were awesome and had no need for dipping sauce.
I have tried a few different ways but coating "appears" like a tempura but my coating gets nicely browned but wing itself was not done.
Any ideas?

Just a guess...but since any kind of "sugar" will burn when exposed to high heat the honey fried wings may have had a honey glaze brushed on after they were cooked...
Maybe try frying some wings, and immediately after removeing them from the oil... brush some thinned (warmed) honey on them...Just a hint of honey glaze would be enough!!
HTH.....

Have Fun!!

I coulda swore we had this same discussion a few months back in another thread, but couldn't find it. I can't remember for sure, but I thought someone's solutions was more honey 'flavoring' than actual honey added into the buttermilk soaking. Then it was breaded and fried. This way it didn't burn. Someone else suggested a thinned out honey mixture then coating then frying to see if it wouldn't burn that way, but I don't know how that turned out.
I like UB's suggestion in this case, fry then coat. Seems the easiest way to do it. I would think a very light coating would soak into the coating so they wouldn't be that sticky or messy.
