I've used this recipe quite a few times now, that I have to say these are one of the best chicken wing I've had. I've made these chicken wings for friends and they can't get enough.

This recipe is DEAD ON! I was a little nervous while buying the ingredients lol, but soooo glade I did!!.So good that I had to sign up just to login and leave a comment..I did fry the plain chicken wigs prior to adding the sauce ,and they came out with a little crispiness!

These were delicious...I cut the recipe in half but I did double the sauce like the chef suggested...it didn't say to turn the wings but I did about every 15 mins or so...also no instructions on what to do with the left over marinade...so I tossed it...but I guess if you weren't going to toss the cooked wings in more sauce you could use the marinade to base the wings...thanks for posting it...=)
