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 copycat Winger’s wings sauce. Perhaps one of the easiest wing sauces in existence, it packs a little heat and a little sweat. Fabulously addicting!

Copycat Winger's Wings

I wouldn’t mess around with the recipe for copycat Winger’s wings 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!

You can adjust the sweetness to taste. I thought it was great as it is written below. Sometimes I like a little more sweetness to my wing sauce. Sometimes I want a little more heat.

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
