Recipe by MARIA MAC

This is a great appetizer. I make this for our Sunday football games. They are a little different than the average buffalo wing.

Tasty! The family enjoyed these. I ended up reducing the pan drippings and poruing over the wings when done to intensify the flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
