Reviews for Spicy Maple Chicken Wings
"Delicious combination of flavors!"
"The only change I made was to replace the hot sauce with Frank's Red Hot buffalo sauce (which I already had on hand). The sauce was amazing!...and there was plenty of it. I cooked 4 lbs wing drums, sauced them up good and still had 1/4 of the sauce left over. Next time, think I may just thicken the sauce a little more and baste over boneless skinless breasts (the way you'd use BBQ sauce) or use as a dipping sauce for nuggets."
"These were different. I used less butter and substituted a buffalo wing sauce for 1/2 the hot sauce and butter."
"We like things saucy, so the amt of sauce was just perfect (plus we did about 4 lbs of wings). We did add a bit more heat to suit our tastes."
"Very Good I wanted to taste more of the maple so I used 1 Cup."
"There was alot of sauce leftover. May cut that in half next time or double the amount of chicken wings. Loved the flavor...sweet & spicy (although not too spicy). My family loved them. The wings were gone in no time."
"These wings were tasty but there was way more sauce than needed! I fixed 4 lbs. instead of just 3 lbs. and I would only have needed half of the sauce."
