I expected the sauce to be way too hot, what with all that hot sauce in it, but it was really just fine and very tasty. If you substitute another brand, you should taste as you add, because I think Texas Pete's isn't as hot as some. (Cholula's is very close.) I used the Clone Kraft's Catalina Salad Dressing, as I wanted to avoid all that sugar in the sauce for hubby's sake. (That's a great clone, well worth a try!) I'm not fond of chicken wings, because I don't like the skin. While mine browned up nicely, some were not quite done enough in the middle for my taste. So, to avoid this, I'd recommend frying all the wings, then baking for a few minutes to insure doneness, then dumping the wings in the sauce. That way, you con't have to worry about keeping them warm as you do each batch. You just put them all in a pan and then stick the whole thing in a hot oven together for 10 min. or so. I tried these with blue cheese dressing, as some others had. I really would have liked them much better with the recommended ranch dressing. While I probably won't make this recipe exactly as is again, I may make the sauce again and use fried chicken strips or nuggets instead of wings. The sauce was really excellent and so easy to make!
WOW! This is one awesome recipe! I did however change the process for making the chicken, but kept the sauce the same which really makes this recipe. I actually used boneless skinless chicken breasts and broiled them in the oven instead of frying to make them a bit more healthy. The dawgie wing sauce is SOOO good tho! I plan on use this super sauce on many other meats and wraps to spice things up!
Best sauce I've ever had. I couldn't find any wings (imagine that the day before the Super Bowl), so I bought legs and thighs instead. I added the paprika and garlic powder (along with a little salt and peper) to my flour, and seasoned my meat the night before as well. Came out great and kept well in a crock pot set on warm. They were the hit of the Super Bowl party! Highly recomend, even if it does come a Georgia Bulldog Fan:-)
Oh yes,these were yummy!! I've never seen Catalina dressing over here,so made it from a clone recipe.I used Tabasco sauce as we don't have Frank's either.These were absolutely delicious,sweet,spicy and addictive.Even my non wing eating husband tried some,and declared he would eat them again. A great wing recipe,thanks alot guys!!
These wings are OUTSTANDING! Loved the sauce - I used a sweet honey catalina dressing and the entire 10 oz of hot sauce and it was perfect. This is my new go-to wing recipe - everyone loved these - thanks for sharing!
Had DHubbie make these for a weeknight dinner and it went over with rave reviews from my kids. Hubbie and I loved it too. I did add extra chili powder to the sauce. None of us found that it was too hot. Maybe it's the hot sauce that was added. The kids made sure that dad knew he had to make it again. It's a winner!
Great sauce for the wings and there was enough of it for another 20 odd wings!
Nery nice. Used on chicken legs that were baked. Everybody enjoyed them. Thanks.
I made this sauce using Cholula Chipotle hot sauce. The smokiness of the Cholula gives the sauce more of a "barbecue" flavor. It makes an excellent sauce for wings as well as other proteins. Thanks for the recipe, 2Bleu!
