Directions for the Chicken Wings

Whisk eggs, milk and sriracha. Place chicken wings in mixture and marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
Mix flour, shore lunch and salt and pepper. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 325°. Heat canola oil to 350°. Remove chicken from mixture and dredge in the flour mixture. Fry until chicken wings are browned.
