Wingers Sticky Fingers

How you prep your wings can be a major source of debate. Some like a vinegary tasting wing while others opt for sweet and spicy. Some want their wings hot while others like a sweet sauce. Whole restaurants like Wing Nutz aim to stop the debate and allow diners to choose their own dipping sauce. Wings and sauce have become an American obsession for perfection next to the hamburger. The origination of wings has long been debated with several different stories emerging, however, it appears that wings and bar go hand in hand.

Americans love their wings. We love them at game time, while dining in the bar, or during the summer. Wings are the perfect finger food!

One of my favorite places to dine when I go out is at Wingers. Anytime we go out with my in laws we also end up eating here. I’ve made their Winger’s Sticky Fingers Salad before, stating the need to use the original sauce from the restaurant. However, we ran out and with the restaurant closed and company coming, it was time to find the recipe…STAT.

This is the closest and best copycat recipe I can find for the sauce. It is delicious on it’s own. The sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. And the sauce is only three ingredients!! I haven’t met one person that hasn’t tried the Wingers sauce and not liked it. Whip some up for your next summer party.

We made them a little healthier for you, or you can opt to go with the original version. Serve these up with some celery or fresh vegetables and some ranch dressing.

  • 1 package Tyson Homestyle Breaded Chicken Breast Strips or two boxes of Applegate Farms Organic Breaded Chicken Strips

  2. In a saucepan, heat the hot sauce, water and brown or coconut sugar on medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Remove sauce from heat. Place chicken strips in a bowl and stir in desired amount of hot sauce, coating the strips in a thin layer of sauce. Add more sauce if necessary for desired amount. Serve chicken.
  4. Note: You will have some sauce left over. The remaining sauce can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
