Hot Spicy Wings Recipe

Hot Spicy Wings Recipe

These appetizers are hearty for a party—with just the right amount of “heat.” But my family enjoys them so much that I often serve these wings as our main course! —Coralie Begin Fairfield, Maine
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:25 servings


  • 7 to 8 pounds fresh or frozen chicken wingettes, thawed
  • 4 cups ketchup
  • 2-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place the chicken wings in two greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over wings.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, 40-45 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Spoon sauce from pans over wings if desired.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze cooled wings in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Reheat wings in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan in a preheated 325° oven until heated through, covering if necessary to prevent excess browning. Yield: about 6 dozen.

"Made these 4 times this summer on grill using a "throw away" aluminum lasagna pan. Stir every 15 minutes for first 45 and then char on grill for a few minutes during last 15. Put them back in pan, cover with foil and they are ready to go. Also added a teaspoon of cumin. Perfect for a family outing."

"When I made the wings first time I added more hot sauce and I baked my wings first without sauce. I didn't add the water at all.After the wings baked I put them in a slow cooker and poured the sauce over the wings and cooked on low setting for about 2 hours. They were so tender..Everyone loved them."

"This recipe is delicious with just the right amount of kick. I like the fact that most of the ingredients are things that you already have on the shelf. I did use fresh garlic instead of powdered and had to substitute cayenne for the chili powder. My only suggestion is to be sure to use a pan with deep sides as it makes a lot of sauce."
