These were great. I marinated them overnight. No need to put under broiler. They crisped up nicely baking. I served them with ribs and stuffed potatoes and they were thorougly enjoyed.

I had to make some adjustments, but this is a fantastic recipe. I only had 2 of the regular ranch mixes, and one 'fiesta ranch' mix. The addition of the fiesta ranch gave it a nice color and a little southwest flavor. I was out of red wine vinegar, but used malt vinegar. I also added a couple cloves of minced garlic and some mesquite seasoning, along with a generous portion of Tabasco. The sauce was incredible, and the wings were the best we ever had. I will definitely make this again, next time will try the recipe 'straight'.

These were enjoyed by all. Had only 1 pkg of mix and a jar of homemade mix (used 1/2 cup). Added 1 1/2 cup water and 1 tbsp hot sauce. Froze the wings in the marinade for trip to camp and did up on bbq. MMM

This was very good. I reduced the sauce by 1/3 (because I only had one packet of ranch) and reduced the wings to 3lbs. I used Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch dressing mix, and I thought the Fiesta flavor was incredible in this. We enjoyed it and will make again; next time, I'll use two packets of ranch to my 3lbs wings, and I won't add the juices (grease!) from the cooking chicken, because it was VERY greasy. The sauce must be thickened JUST before serving, because it quickly seperates into flavorful clumps in oil, and I couldn't get it to mix back together. I ended up pouring off the oil and dribbling the flavorful clumps over the wings -- which was not pretty but tasted great.

I made these w/ the recipe exactly as written. I did not use 5 pounds of wings..I think it was about 3. They turned out nice and brown, and did not need to be placed under the broiler. I have made these twice now, and we really enjoyed them. Thanks for posting.

The chicken crisped up nicely in cooking and made a lovely presentation, however there was alot left to be desired when it came to taste. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I was disappointed with the way it turned out. There was a flavor that I just couldn't place (perhaps it was the red wine vinegar?), but it made an unpleasant aftertaste. Sorry I couldn't rate this higher...
