Last week we went to a work picnic so that Mike Sr could put some faces to names of some of the people he talks to in his part time Home Health job. While there I got to talking to one of the office ladies about recipes, and she told me this simple way to make imitation Wingers sauce. I absolutely adore Wingers, but have been trying to eat healthier and so I thought grilling boneless skinless chicken breast and then using some of the sauce over it might be a better option for me than actually going to the restaurant.
To make the sauce you just simply put 1/3 cup franks hot sauce, 2 Tbsp water and 1 & 1/2 cups of brown sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil for a couple of mins till the sugar is completely dissolved. (The sauce will thicken slightly as it sits after you remove it from the heat).
To grill our chicken, I put about half the sauce aside in a separate bowl to keep it uncontaminated from raw chicken and poured the rest over the chicken to marinate for about 30 minutes. Hubby threw the chicken on the grill and cooked it to perfection, then we served the chicken with the reserved sauce from the separate bowl on the side for dipping/drenching. Can I tell you that my family could just not get enough of this??? It will be a family regular for sure this summer!
I used the franks buffalo sauce this first time and it was on the spicy side, (which we LOVE). I think the plain hot sauce is not quite as spicy, so give them both a try and see which one you prefer. :)
