"This is the BEST recipe for hot wings and I have tried many others over the years ---I make these quite often for my parties and everyone loves them --- you may double all ingredients if desired, if you are doubling the ingredients, I suggest to just start with 2 tablespoons hot sauce such as Louisiana hot sauce then add more to reach the desired heat --- I have even prepared these on the grill instead of the broiler and then finished cooking them in the oven with the sauce, another idea is you may cook the wings hours in advance or even a day ahead cool slightly and just leave them in the fridge overnight, then the following day just coat them in the hot sauce and then bake them in the oven, you may even prepare the hot sauce a day ahead in fact it tastes even better if prepared in advance just refrigerate overnight, preparing the wings and the sauce in advance is a great time saver if you are making them for a crowd,"

"This recipe is, in actual fact, excellent but it's word for word lifted from Best of the Best of Bridge, page 70, copyright August 1998, which also has loads of other terrific recipes."
"Very good. After trying more than one of your recipes, I have concluded that what you make and how you make it can be counted on to produce wonderful results. These are no exception. Thank you for being the cook you are."
"Great recipe made first time as per recipe and tasted great. Second time around I made a few changes which also worked out great. First of all I doubled the sauce ingredients. I then got a plastic baggie with 2 cups flour + 1 tbl paprika, 1 tbl onion salt, 1 tbl mustar powder and 1/2 tbl chilli powder. I used drumsticks/thighs, popped them in the baggie to coat in the flour. I then baked them in the oven until the floured tops were golden. I took them out, drained a little of the fat off and poured over the sauce ingredients then baked again for approx 20 minutes. The sauce thickened down and the result was incredably sticky hot wings!"
"This recipe is absolutely FANTASTIC! I added extra hot sauce, and a little extra mustard, but I will never try another wing sauce recipe. Thank you so much!"
"The best grilled chicken wings I ever had! They are moist and juicy, and the sourness and spicyness lasts very long in your mouth - excellent! I made some fried pasta in butter and tomato paste and it's a perfect match. Thanks for sharing this recipe. This is going to be a big hit for my next party."
"I have to agree, this is the best way to make chicken wings! Sometimes I get lazy and don't feel like making the sauce. That's when I open up a bottle of my favorite wing sauce from my favorite wing restaurant and just dip the broiled wings in the bottled sauce. The results are that they are just as good as what I get at the restaurant, but without the cost or the deep frying. Thank you so very much!"
"Made these wings for Superbowl to take to a friends house yesterday. They came out great! The sauce was sweet and spicy. I liked the addition of the ketchup in this recipe. Thanks for a great sauce. **Update** I can't say enough how much my family and I love this recipe. It is not the humdrum same old hot wings everyone else makes. I have played around with adding different hotsauce to the recipe, from Tabasco's new wings hot sauce (now my favorite) to whatever hotsauce or chili's I have on hand. The only difference I change in this recipe is to add fresh finely minced onion rather than onion powder (dried) from the spice cabinet. I have noted that these do not seem as hot as other hot wings maybe because of the addition of the honey. So I almost always very generous with the hot sauce. Thanks again for a great recipe! We make this all the time!"
"Well, these were pretty good but they're not the best I've ever had. I find that some kittencal recipes are really awesome and others are just kinda so-so. This is one of those that are just so-so."
"Another great recipe from Kittencal! I made these for after the Superbowl and was a little concerned when my husband told me they were missing something...blue cheese to dip in! The wings were fantastic! I followed the recipe as is and did throw them on broil at the end. Thanks for a go to wing recipe!"
"These really are fantastic! They are quite easy, and oh so very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly except I only had a little bit of ketchup, so I substituted chile sauce. I think it probably didn't change the flavor that much except maybe made it a tad bit more tangy. I used Cholula hot sauce, so that was a bit more tame than something like Tabasco. This will certainly be on my "preferred" appetizer list both for taste and ease of preparation.
I made these a second time, using Pete's Hot Sauce, and following the recipe exactly. They were great, once again!"
"This is the best hot wing recipe I have had! Big hit! Thank you"
"We don't like super spicy food and this one isn't. This is a nice sweet wing recipe, but there's no heat (used 3 Tablespoons hot sauce). I gave the recipe 2 stars because I was looking for a "Hot" recipe."
"Made these for 4th of July and everybody loved them! Texas Pete was our hot sauce choice, I QUADRUPLED the recipe and since I only had about 1/4 cup of honey, I used 3/4 cup agave nectar to make up the difference. The crowd likes REALLY SPICY, so I took a chance and added 1/4 cup crushed red pepper, 2T cayenne, and 1T black pepper. To keep the kitchen cool, I had the DH cook these on the grill first and then i dunked them in the sauce, baked for 5 mins at suggested heat settings, then dunked them again! Next time we might add grated ginger to give them more of an asian flavor. Either way, this is def. a KEEPER! Thanks!"
"This was a great chicken wing recipe. I doubled the recipe, used 5 cloves of garlic, 2 1/2 T. hot sauce, and 1 tsp. onion powder instead of dried onions. I was trying to not make the sauce too hot since we had a lot of young kids eating the wings. When I made the sauce on the stovetop and tasted it, there was a little kick. During baking, the kick went away and I was left with sweet wings. They were very good, but next time I will not reduce the amount of hot sauce called for and maybe add a little more. I baked/broiled the wings as directed."
"These were amazing! I followed your recipe except that I did not have dried onion, so I added a bit of onion powder instead. I added a bit of cayenne pepper for an extra kick and I also followed the advice of another reviewer and subbed hot sauce for the 1/4 cup of water. THESE WERE SUPERB!!! Thank you for the awesome recipe!"
"We really enjoyed these wings. The sauce is fantastic, and I love that they are baked. We did broil them on both sides to crisp them well. I was unsure about the dried onions, it looked like so much to use, but decided to trust you and go with it. I am glad I did!! With 2 tbsp hot sauce, they were not spicy at all to us, just sweet. Still YUMMY, but next time I will try much more, possibly in place of the water as others have suggested. Either way, you can not go wrong with this recipe."
"Fantastic is right..My DH and I loved these. I added a little Agave Nector as well as the honey and used apple cider vinegar, as that is all I had handy. I also took another reviewers suggestion and used hot sauce instead of water. The absolute best! This is my new hot wing recipe. Made again for a party last night, and they were all gone and the recipe was requested. These are REALLY good."
"I am always looking for good appys to make for my DH and I, and this one looked really appealing. It was totally enjoyed by both of us, and I would recommend them to anyone who likes a little heat! I cut down on the heat by adjusting the hot sauce and I did use Louisiana Hot Sauce, which is milder than Tabasco. Be aware of the heat potential in these, and enjoy! Thank you!"
"I made this for Super Bowl Sunday. I have never made Buffalo Wings before but I can honestly say. They were a hit. I had 5lbs of wings so I tweaked the recipe a bit. I used habanero sauce instead of plan hot sauce so it was quite a bit hotter but they still flew. Thanks Kittencal!"
"I made this recipe for a New Years Party and scaled it for 4 lbs of wings. I used Lyle's golden syrup in place of the honey (always do) and used the recommended hot sauce PLUS subbed hot sauce for the water in the recipe. Cooked the sauce 2 days ahead and let it sit. Made the wings and they flew off the tray! Oh so good.....mostly sweet with a spicy kick at the end. I used Texas Pete hot sauce and was surprised even with the extra it wasn't real hot, but I'll try a different hot sauce next time. Anyway, make these wings-they are as Kittencal says-FANTASTIC!!!"
