So we are still digging our way out of the blizzard of 2016. That snow was no joke. We got at least between 25-28 inches over here and have been in doors for 3 days now. Do you know what cabin fever makes me want to do?
So that’s where these sticky strawberry barbecue hot wings come in and I have to tell you they are the real deal.
The groom said that he doesn’t think that the pictures of these hot wings do them any justice because, they are so tasty that you just have to try them for yourself.
Actually, I agree. Game day will never be the same so, you may just want to skip ordering any wings and make these yourself. Bring on the Superbowl! My main gripe with some hot wings are they tend to get soggy and loaded down with all the sauce.
So, here’s my secret to get the skin extra crispy. No soggy wings here. Thoroughly dry the wings with a paper towel before your season them. Then coat them with the non-stick spray and when they come out they’ll be nice and crispy.
See, the wings out of the oven are nice and dry. You could just eat them straight out the oven but, don’t do that. You’ve got to coat them with the good stuff. So toss them in as little or as much of the sauce as you like.
That strawberry barbecue hot sauce is just delicious.
Of course, no hot wings would be complete without a healthy dipping of ranch or blue cheese.
But, it’s your choice. I won’t pressure you.
My only request is that you try my recipe and that you enjoy!
You don’t even have to share if you don’t want to.
