This sauce tastes similar to the sauce used on the sticky fingers at one of my favorite restaurants. It is easy to make and has endless possibilities for modification. Try adding a bit of cinnamon or cloves to it. Honey is used to thicken the sauce, but isn't necessary. If not using the honey, just use extra brown sugar.

I marinated my wings in this. Should have saved a bit of liquid to shake in after they were grilled. I thought this was yummy and not too hot at all. I did add extra brown sugar and honey though after tasting it when it was cooking. Because of how easy this is a keeper. Read More
