Many years ago, there was a wing restaurant in my town that had the best chicken wings in dozens of flavors. On top of that, they also had a 10-cent wing night. I'm not sure how any restaurant could offer wings at 10 cents a piece, but they were always packed. Despite visiting that place almost every week for wings, I have never tried making them at home until now.
When Mr. Spice contacted me about creating a few recipes using their sauces, I thought chicken wings would be a great option. Instead of frying them, as they're usually prepared, I wanted to make a healthier baked option that still comes out crispy and this recipe was born. Enjoy!
