Crispy Wings with Spicy Coconut Dressing

I've been M.I.A. for a while due to my partaking in the P90x program which requires a healthy diet of dull, uninspiring food but now I'm back with my first post for the new year - chicken wings that have been deep fried in a ton of grease till they're crispy and golden brown and then smothered with a creamy blend of coconut milk, mayonnaise, sour cream, cayenne pepper and honey. Obviously, I'm not strong enough to stay off carbs and fried foods...

About a dozen wings, separated at the joint and wing tips removed
Oil for frying (about 3 cups)
2 tablespoons of light soy sauce
⅓ cup of rice flour or all-purpose flour
⅓ cup of corn starch
Salt and pepper

3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
3 tablespoons of sour cream
2 tablespoons of canned coconut milk
1 teaspoon of dried dill
2 tablespoons of honey
½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
juice of half a lime

Fill up a wok or pot with cooking oil and heat up the oil. In the meantime, sprinkle the wings with some salt and pepper and coat them in the soy sauce, flour and corn starch.

Once the oil is hot (about 375°F or test by dropping one wing into the oil), fry the wings in batches of about 6-8 at a time. Fry the wings till they're golden brown and then set aside and drain on a piece of paper towel.

Meanwhile, put all the ingredients for the dressing into a bowl and mix well. When the wings are done, pour the dressing over. The dressing can also be served separately as a dip.

And now I'm off to burn those calories..
