Pre-heat deep fryer to 375 degrees.
In a medium sauce pan, pour the measured Kentuckyaki sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar and Sriracha sauce. Mix well to incorporate all ingredients and place over medium-high heat.
Mix the corn starch and water together to form a loose paste.
Once the Kentuckyaki sauce come to a boil, whisk in corn starch mixture and cook for an addition 2 minutes with continuous whisking. Once sauce is thickened, remove from heat and reserve hot.
Season the all-purpose flour with the salt and pepper. Dredge the wings in the seasoned flour mixture shaking off any excess. Fry wings in pre heated deep fryer for 7 to 9 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees for 15 seconds. Wings should have a golden brown appearance.
Once wings are done frying, allow time to drain and rest on a paper towel lined baking sheet (about 2 minutes). Toss wings in Kentuckyaki sauce for a light glaze.
