Copycat Winger’s Wings

There are few things that make me happier than a big ole basket of wings. I consider wings to be the perfect lunch. The other day I cooked up a batch of wings and tossed them with a bit of homemade Winger’s wing sauce. Perhaps one of the easiest wing sauces in existence, it packs a little heat and a little sweat. Fabulously addicting!

I wouldn’t mess around with the recipe for Winger’s wing sauce. It’s meant to be straightforward. Nothing fru-fru. Just the perfect balance and consistency. No lakes of wing sauce at the bottom of the basket here!
