MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 20, 2014

The sauce was very tasty, but I was disappointed that it didn't thicken up well at all. I used drumsticks since they were cheaper and there's more meat on them. I should have removed the skin from these because they got a little slimy. Taste was awesome though!

MY REVIEW

They were very good. I used the suggested method of broiling for 10 minutes on each side and removing extra grease with paper towels. The sauce was not soupy or greasy.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2012

Saw many posts that the sauce was to Ketchupy so I substituted 1/2 cup chilli sauce for 1/2 cup of the ketchup. I also added an extra Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. I also broild my wings about 15 minutes making them somewhat crispy. Itasted the sauce as I was making it tasted very Yummy to me.
