Why settle for commercial "finger-lickin' good" when you can have these? Absolutely fantastic, and not too spicy for us. Because I didn't have jerk seasoning blend on hand, I added jerk flavours to the dip. The ingredients that went into the blender were all the above plus one onion, 2 1/2 tsp. thyme, 2 tsp. allspice, 2 tsp. black pepper, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. cayenne, and salt instead of the jerk seasoning blend. While the flavour was out of this world, the other revelation was the long cooking at a lower temperature. Usually I make my wings at a higher temp for a shorter time, and while they're good, the texture was much better this way: crispy on the outside, and meltingly tender on the inside. I'll never cook wings at a higher temp ever again.

These were not as "kickin" as I hoped they would be. Marinaded them overnight in the pasty marinade, but they were still very bland. They smelled great cooking and the little bit of flavor they did have was very good. I don't know how to rescue these. Maybe some vinegar in the marinade to help it penetrate?

These wings were out of this world. Very easy to make. Loved the longer cooking time at lower temperature. Managed to hide a few for reheating the next day...even better. Thanks for a great recipe.

These are very good. My family couldn't stop eating them. I paired this dish with baked beans and coleslaw for an overall yummy meal. The sauce has a fresh and flavorful taste. Following are the changes I made or will make the next time I make these: 1. Use fresh jalapeno instead of pickled. I did and it is the way to go for added fresh taste. 2. Make more sauce than the recipe calls for. The chicken can be somewhat dry if you use all of the sauce prior to roasting. This sauce is so good that you can use the extra for dipping and added moisture after they are done cooking. 3. Rotate the wings every 30 minutes. I neglected to do this and while they were quite good, they ended up being kind of burnt on one side and not very crisp on the other. Overall, an excellent recipe and I will make again.

These were very good wings. I couldn't believe how moist and tender they were! I only had one pound of wings, so I followed the conversion for 2 servings. I didn't have any green onions, so I just left that out. And I only let it marinate for about two hours. I served this over white rice with raisins cooked in-this gave a little balance to the spice. I was not expecting it to be very spicy, due to other reviews, and they were right. But my husband and I found it a unique, flavorful burn. I suggest liberally adding salt once it is on your plate. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!

These were very good, but I really expected the them to have more flavor and spice. I had some difficulty getting the sauce to mix in my blender. I had to add extra oil. Even then, it would have been difficult to dip the wings and have any sauce left over. I marinated my wings in a freezer bag and removed all the air to allow the most contact with the marinade.

First of all the presentation was not so good. The wings were a very odd and unappealing green color. Beyond that the flavor was bland and in no way "Kickin"

Very nice flavor and low in fat. Used Olive Oil and placed in ziploc bag overnight. Thanks for sharing!
