My husband fine-tuned this recipe—and the results were spectacular! These spicy-hot grilled wings are true party pleasers. You can easily adjust the heat level by altering the amount of chili powder. The wings take a little time, but they're worth it. —Angela Roster, Greenbackville, Virginia
When I moved to Kansas City from Texas, I brought many of my mom's best-loved recipes with me, including these saucy sweet-and-sour wings. This recipe turned a friend of mine, who's not a fan of chicken, into a real wing lover.

From Stevens, Pennsylvania, Sandralee Herr shares her yummy recipe for hot and filling appetizers. “This is a great way to use up leftover chicken,” advises Sandralee. “Sometimes, I serve it with fruit salad for a delicious, light meal for up to four people.”
A soy sauce mixture with sesame seeds and green onion adds flavor to these deep-fried wings. My mom got the recipe from a friend in Vancouver, British Columbia and passed it on to me. My husband just loves chicken wings, and these are by far his favorite.
