The whole family was pleasantly surprised! The flavor was fantastic and a nice change from traditional buffalo style. The wings were cooke perfectly-nice and moist on the inside.


Super Recipe! My family loved these wings. Before baking, I covered a large cookie sheet with foil and sprayed it with Pam. I seasoned the wings with Season All and pepper, then I drizzled 3 T. of butter on the wings. My hubby likes his wings spicy, so along with the brown sugar and lime juice, I added 1/4 tsp. of chipolte pepper. We liked the flavor of the wings better than Frank's Hot Wing Sauce. Grumpy Honeybunch, thanks for the great recipe.


So far I’ve made these twice. The first time I put the frozen chicken wings on a well oiled broiler pan. When I’ve baked frozen wings before they tend to swim in liquid so using a broiler pan lets that liquid drip away allowing the wings to crisp up quicker. I baked, turning once or twice and I really don’t remember if I baked for the recommended time, but it was close – I just baked until they looked crispy. I then followed the rest of the directions as indicated adding some minced garlic to the sauce mixture. These turned out fantastic. We’re from the north and didn’t grow up on hot/spicy foods so that is something we’re not used to. Neither my husband nor I like a sauce that leaves you running for something to drink. These wings did not do that. The ratio of sweet to heat was perfect for us and it didn’t leave a lasting effect in our mouths. The second time I made these I was doing the baking part by memory. They didn’t seem to crisp up and caramelize like they did the first time for me. Well that’s because there is a reason recipes have directions! I forgot the broiler step. By not using the broiler to help caramelize and do a final “crisp” it sure changed this recipe for us – both taste and mouth feel. We liked the second batch but NOT near as well as the first batch. That’s one reason why you shouldn’t multi-task while cooking. So the broiler step is a must to a perfect chicken wing! Thank you Shelby, for this keeper.
