  • Reviews

  • “My husband and I made this together and both loved it.We used Cholula Hot Sauce and Daniel’s BBQ Sauce.The only thing we’ll do differently next time is take the wings out of the sauce as soon as we’ve coated them.We left them in while we cooked the rest and it seemed like the sauce got oiled down and became separated.No leftovers tonight, however!Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “Great recipe!I served them for the Eagles/Falcons playoff game and my family loved them! I ended up having to add more hot sauce because they said they were not hot enough!I used 5 lbs. of Tyson frozen wings, so I changed the quantity of the recipe to make enough sauce.I also put them under the broiler for some extra crispness before serving.Thanks for sharing!”

  • “These were GREAT!Makes for a very fast meal!I took the suggestion of TEC and instead frying, I baked them on a rack and they were crispy without all the grease.Thanks for posting!”

  • “This is a total WOW….I can not tell you how much we loved these wings…the taste of BBQ sause was great…I used Louisiana Hot Sauce.I also used Sweet Baby RayesBBQ sauce. The hint of the BBQ sauce was great..Thank You..Hugs”

  • “In order to get wings with a crispy skin, and little fat bake them on a rack at 425 degrees F. The rack will allow the grease to drain off ontot the bottom sheet. If you start with frozen wings they’ll take longer(50-55 minutes). Fresh or defrosted wings will cook faster(about 35 minutes). Of course your oven temperature may be different to mine…To keep the skin crispy serve with warm sauce and blue cheese on the side. As you eat dip the wings in the sauce. This is the only way I’ve found that keeps the skin crispy.”

  • “Super delicious.Just like restaurant wings.However, very messy and smelly to make.I tried frying them the morning of the party so my house wouldn’t smell.We taste tested the wings then and thought they were delicious.They were not as good reheated in the oven later.However, we discovered that if we reheated them in the oven and then tossed them back in some new sauce on the stovetop, they were again just terrific.”

  • “Excellent wings, Karen! I did add a dash of cayenne pepper and cracked black pepper as well. These were really crispy and didn’t have a really vinegary taste as a lot of wings do. Thanks for posting!”

  • “Easy and very tasty. Exactly what I was looking for – thanks!”

  • “Great flavor, but no where near hot enough for my crazy family.”

  • “These were my first attempt at Hot Wings.I used a maple cherry BBQ sauce from American Spoon food and Tabasco Sauce.I only used 2 tblspoons of the hot sauce as my family is not into spicy.These came out delicious and crisp!Thank you!”

  • “Made a double batch for SuperBowl Sunday and they were a huge hit!Used Franks hot sauce and Gates BBQ sauce.Thanks Karen!”

  • “This recipe just did not work for me. I’m not sure what I did wrong. I follwed the steps exactly, but my sauce came out with an overwhelming vinegar taste and smell. It was extremely bitter and no one in my family would try the wings. Any suggestions as to what hot sauce and BBQ sauce I should have used?”

  • “I really love this recipe. I can control the heat level of the wings with the BBQ sauce by adding more or less. My hubby doesn’t like spicey foods but he’ll eat these if I lower the heat. I never would have thought of the BBQ sauce…..thanks”

  • “Outstanding! So rich and tasty. I used Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, along with a teaspoon of honey foradded sweetness. As for being “smelly to make,” I plugged in my Frydaddy outside and let ‘er rip on the patio. No greasy smell in the house here!”

  • “LOVE THEM!!!Thanks so much for the recipe.I made them with Frank’s Buffalo Wing sauce and used I can’t believe it’s not butter light to reduce the fat but, they were right tasty!!”

  • “Very good wings with just the right amount of heat and super easy to prepare.Thanks for sharing this recipe!”

  • “Thanks for sharing this recipe!This really is the best way to make wings.I tried another recipe tonight in which you bake the wings in the oven.They were way too greasy and soggy.Yuck.Never again.I will always use the method in your recipe in the future.Next time, I’m going to try this using the honey teriyaki sauce @ Honey.com. Thanks again!”

  • “YUM!!!These are Perfect.. Even my 8 year old loved them!”
