  • Place wings in a large container with a secure lid. Pour sauce over the wings, and seal. Shake wings with the sauce until thoroughly coated.

I baked the wings instead of bbq'd them used an extra hot sauce and they were wonderful! My husband thought the sauce could be a little thicker. Read More

Made these for lunch and tweaked them a bit. I saw that the sauce was not holding to the wings so halfway through the cooking process I breaded them. Worked so much better. I also added some seasoning to the breading so that it would have some more flavor when we bit into them...garlic powder the cayenne suggested anything that your family enjoys. I have another recipe that I think I will continue to use but thanks for the post. Read More

We made this yesterday. Normally I use "Frank's Hot Sauce." (not real spicy) All that I had on hand yesterday was chicken thighs and "Tapatio Hot Sauce." I also added a tsp. of garlic powder and two tsp. of red pepper flakes. LORD HAVE MERCY!! This has to be equivalent to sucking on a hot coal. But absolutely delish. Thanks. Read More

My daughter Ashley is the hot wing not to mention hot anything expert. Believe it or not this is a taste she developed when she was a baby. She gave these a five star rating however the only change we made was to deep fry the wings in our fry daddy in lieu of grilling as we like them really crispy. Thanks Beth! Read More

The flavor of the sauce was great but it is a little thin (could be the hot sauce I used). We grilled the wings but we like them crispier too so will fry them next time we make this. Read More

Gave this 4 stars as is... but would consider this a 5-star recipe with my variation... I add about 1/3 cup honey to the hot sauce/butter mixture. in addition to making the sauce taste really great it will thicken the sauce and help it stick to the chicken. Such a great easy recipe! Read More
