Bat Wings (Baked Chicken Wings)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 30 mins

These are kind of like baked hot wings. I love to make the sauce, although, sometimes I get really lazy and use Buffalo Wild Wings sauces :shock: Also, for the hot sauce, I use tabasco or Frank's Hot Wing Sauce. Sometimes, depending on how much I want my mouth on fire, I add 1/8 -1/4 teaspoon of cayenne! Serving size depends on if this is for an appetizer or a main meal. Prep time does not include marinade time (I make in the morning let it marinate all day and then cook at night)

Very tasty! I didn't know what pepper sauce was either so I added hot sauce. Next time I'll add more hot sauce since we like it rather spicy. Delicious!

Sweet and tangy. I used chicken wings (1.5K - 12 wings) and doubled the sauce ingredients except the honey (for dietary reasons I left that as is) and didn't have the foggiest what red pepper sauce was so used a good splash of tabasco and baked for an hour at 175C fan forced. It wasn't until we finished that I realized I forgot to put out the ranch dressing but they were excellent without it. Thank you SarahBeth, made for Every Day A Holiday.
