These were very good and so easy to make. I didn't add the measurement asked in recipe for the salt, I felt it would have been too much salt b/cuz soy sauce is salty as is. But other than that, I followed the recipe. Also the flour and breadcrumb could be cut back a bit as there was a lot leftover when all wings were breaded.
