Great little appetizers! Easy. Got this from a Hawaiian friend of mine. Be sure to make plenty, they go fast! Serve hot, warm or at room temperature. Can also be made with whole wings or thighs cut into bite-size pieces. I flour my chicken in a ziplock or paper bag for easy clean-up. An electric frying pan or two work great for these.
