To Store: Store sauce and/or wings in an airtight container for several days. Wings taste great next day or you can slice them up into a salad and make sticky finger salad. 
To make Wingers sticky finger salad: cut up chicken strips and place on top of lettuce. Sprinkle cheddar cheese and dried cranberries on top. Drizzle with ranch dressing. Serve with vegetables or roll as a side dish.
