Firecracker Chicken:
Mix marinade ingredients together stirring until salt is disolved. Pour into large zip top freezer bag and add chicken. Turn to coat chicken with marinade. Let marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours, turn bag several time to insure chicken is evenly coated.
Grill or roast chicken breasts after they have marinated. Shred cooked chicken. Place shredded chicken into a plastic container with a lid. Pour a generous amount of the sauce over the wings,cover, and gently stiror toss the wings so that they are all well coated with the sauce.
In same container mix in desired amount of cheese with chicken. Toss gently to coat well.

Wrap the tortillas in a moist cloth and microwave on high temperature for 1 1/2 minutes or until hot.
Spoon approximately one-sixth of the mixture into the center of a tortilla. Don't stuff tortillas too full. Fold in the ends and then roll the tortilla over the mixture. Roll the tortilla very tight, then pierce with a toothpick to hold together. Arrange the wraps on a plate, cover the plate with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours, overnight if possible.

Preheat 4-6 cups of oil to 375 degrees.
Deep fry the wraps in the hot oil for 12-15 minutes and remove to paper towels or a rack to drain for about 2 minutes. Carefully remove toothpicks.
