    Delicious wings!! The sauce is a homerun. We loved it! It was sticky, sweet and spicy all in one. In terms of how my oven broils, 45 min. was way too long. I think they were done and crispy by 20 min. max. I'll be printing out this keeper. Thanks!

    Like alligirl, I baked rather than broiled the wings. The sauce was absolutely DELICIOUS. Yum. I want more... This is a keeper of a recipe and will add it to my ever-growing collection of wing sauce recipes! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9, for the Gourmet Goddesses.

    Delicious wings!! I made 1/4 of the recipe and just loved the combination of sweet, salty and spicy flavors of the glaze. I am not a huge fan of super spicy foods, so wasn't sure how this would be for my tastes and it was spot on for me. The only thing I would change next time, and there will be a next time, would be to fry or grill the wings. Mine were very dry after cooking for 45 minutes, but needed to cook that long to get the crispy texture I like, not a fan of the rubbery skin. So next time I would grill them with the oiled skin or just fry them for a much shorter time and then follow the recipe for the glaze etc. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.

    I made these for DH (tho I stole one, of course) and they were really good. I didn't broil mine, as they were kinda big; I cooked them on 400º for 45 minutes, brushing on the sauce in the last 15 minutes, while turning them, to make that nice crispy skin! He loved them and wants me to make them again, soon. To me, that means they go into my 'Best of 2013' cookbook! Done and done! Thanks for sharing a winner of a recipe, threeovens!

    Made these for the kids to snack on and they let me have one. Everything I certainly want a wing to be, with layers of savoury/sweet. I let them cool in the baking pan a bit for the sauce to thicken up, and then gave them a good stir to recoat. They were gone so fast I wasn't sure if I'd even made them.LOL
