~ Melanie's Sweet 'n Spicy Wing 'n Thing Sauce ~

Chicken Thing-Wing Sauce #1 (Finished #2) This incredibly delicious and very easy to make, sweet and spicy chicken wing sauce needs little introduction. 

Once you have stirred a mixture of two pantry ingredients, honey and hot sauce, together over low heat for about 1 minute, it is pretty much done!

It's almost embarassing to call this a "real" recipe, but everyone asks me how I make it, so here goes:Chicken Thing-Wing Sauce #1 (Ingredients)


~ Step 1.  The measurements here are pretty much arbitrary (up to you and your personal taste), but I like my wing sauce ratio to be:

"2 to 1" meaning:  2 cups of honey to 1 cup of Frank's RedHot Sauce.

~ Step 2.  I don't even use a pot!  I like to use a large stainless steel bowl on the stovetop.  The same bowl the wings will go into to be sauced when they come out of the deep-fryer!

Add your honey, then the hot sauce to the bowl.  Place on stovetop over low heat. Chicken Thing-Wing Sauce #5 (Whisk Together)




~ Step 3.  Whisk the honey/hot sauce mixture together for about 1 minute, or less, over low heat.  You will know immediately when the wing sauce is done...Chicken Thing-Wing Sauce #6 (Finished #1)








~ Step 4.  ... as it will be uniform in color and very shiny. 

At this point, the sauce can be used immediately to sauce or dip wings, or:

Sauce can be refrigerated pretty much indefinitey.  I almost always have a small container on hand in my refrigerator.

Also, once this sauce is stirred together over low heat, it will never separate!  How neat is that!

Melanie's Sweet 'n Spicy Wing Sauce:  Recipe yields approximately 1 1/2 cups of wing sauce or enough to sauce 4 dozen chicken wings.

Special Equipment List:  large stainless steel bowl; whisk

Cook's Note:  Sauce can be made well in advance of serving.  Sauce keeps almost indefinitely in the refrigerator.  Reheat in microwave or gently on stovetop.  In case you are wondering what the "'n Thing" means in the title of this recipe, this sauce is just as delicious served with my recipe for ~ JoePa's Chicken Things ~ found in categories 1 & 17!
