I made this mostly from left overs! But you can make it from scratch using this recipe as a guide line.

It is easy, fast to make and tastes so darn good!

You can make it according to directions, or tone it down or make it spicier according to your tastes.

I used Saucy Mama, Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce which is my favorite... but you can use any hot wing sauce you care for.

This is a recipe worth trying.
