These are the BEST wings I have ever had in my life! My husband who used to work in a restaurant says they are the best he has ever tasted! I did change two things in the recipe however. Before coating the wings with the sauce I dropped them in boiling water for 10 minutes. I didn't have any onion powder so I substituted garlic powder. Also, I put aluminum foil on the pan before I put the wings in (makes clean up easier).

This recipe was very good! However, like others have said, I found it to taste way too much like ketchup. I improvised by putting 1/2 cup of ketchup(instead of 1 cup), 1 1/2 teaspoons of soya sauce, 1 table spoon chilli powder, 1 table spoon garlic powder and a few shakes of hot sauce. I gave this recipe a 3 because of the changes that needed to made. After all the changes, it tasted absolutely delicious. I've used this recipe to make wings, legs and thighs. I will definitely using this recipe for making barbeque chicken in the future.

Wonderful! I made these for the Super Bowl and my friends loved them. I doubled the recipe as I had 20 wings and made a few other changes. These changes are for a doubled batch: added two tablespoons of garlic powder, added approx. 10 drops of hot sauce and added approx. 1 teaspoon of liquid smoke. I also used only 1 1/2 cups of ketchup as other reviewers suggested. Because some reviewers complained about burning I cooked them the first 30 minutes covered with foil and the last 15 minutes uncovered. I also basted every 15 minutes. This was a great recipe and I plan on making this many, many more times.

This is a good recipe as is, 4 stars for sure. But it tastes a little too much like ketchup for me. To make it 5 stars, try Naturelle's suggestions (posted 6/1/2005) - decrease ketchup, add soya sauce, chili powder and substitute onion powder with garlic powder. Those variations make it fantastic.

I added some chopped onion instead of the onion spice.

Really great-- follow others' suggestions to reduce ketchup and add the soy sauce and other spices--best we've had. Husband loved it--smelled great while cooking and not too sticky.

This is easy to make and my family loves it. I have used chicken breasts and cut them into 1 - 2 inch pieces in place of wings. We rarely have leftovers!

We love this recipie. I made the sauce as printed, except I reduced the ketchup. Before coating the chicken, I boiled it for 15 minutes. Then we smoothered the chicken with the sauce. We then put it on the grill for a few minutes to make it a little crip. Thanks for the great recipie
