We enjoyed these wings to the nax! The only change I made was to use 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper instead of the peppers. Flavor was fantastic!

Great wings! We skipped the crushed red pepper as I thought it would be too spicy -- but next time I will use them as these are just right and the red pepper would just add a tad more heat! Thanks for sharing!

I scaled back for one serve using 6 chicken wings and made as per recipe for a delicious moist and addictive wings. Usually I would only eat 3 or 4 and save the rest to try cold to see if they would be good for a picnic but these were so good that I scoffed the lot. Thanks TeresaS made for Billboard Recipe Tag game.
