I LOVE the Winger’s sauce and I crave it all the time. I like to put it on grilled chicken, chicken kabobs, or just dip popcorn in it. Recently we made burgers on the grill and added this over the top… it was AMAZING (no wonder they call this sauce “Freakin’ Amazing Sauce). Add a little ranch to the sauce to make Wingers Creamy Amazing Sauce and put it on salads! You just can’t go wrong with this stuff!

Our Version of Winger’s Wings with Freakin’ Amazing Sauce
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
  • WINGS:
  • 1 c. flour (I like to use Wondra flour but regular flour is great too)
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 20 (or so) chicken wings
  • oil for deep frying
  • SAUCE:
  • ⅓ c. Franks Hot Sauce (It has to be Franks Hot Sauce... no other sauce will taste as good)
  • 1½ c. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  2. In a bowl mix together the flour, cayenne and salt. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and toss with flour mixture until they are evenly coated (or you can do it the Shake n' bake way and put it all in a large bag, do 5 or so wings at a time so they get evenly coated). Cover bowl and refrigerate for about an hour.
  3. FOR THE SAUCE: Heat up hot sauce, brown sugar and water in a saucepot until all the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp before adding to wings OR prepare ahead of time and refrigerate. The wings turn out best if you don't pour warm sauce over them. You want it nice and thick.
  4. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add sauce mixture and stir together.



  1. Oh. My. Gosh. We LOVE Winger's! Once we got stuck in Laramie, WY, overnight one December because of car trouble, & went to a Winger's (we don't live near one). It turned out to be the very last night that one was open before it went out of business! We were more than happy to give it a happy sendoff.

  2. Seriously A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. We made 2 batches yesterday – one for our chicken and one we added the ranch to the other batch for some Creamy Amazing with popcorn. ALL of it is gone. I better go run….

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have never heard of Wingers but we are always looking to try new buffalo sauces for our chicken. I made the sauce tonight and tasted it afterwards and it is delicious. Can't wait to try it on our chicken tomorrow night. Thanks for sharing.

  4. we used regular wings, not boneless ones and they turned out yummy. My teen boys especially liked them!

  5. My husband and I ate at Wingers in Utah 2-3 times a week while we were dating because we loved it so much. We have since moved from Utah and I was on the search to find something that tasted just like it. I tried numerous recipes…only to be disappointed. Then I came across this recipe. I have died and gone heaven. These taste just like them!!!!! Definitely adding this to our monthly menu. Thanks so much!!

  6. I made these tonight, and they were amazing!! I want to say I have never been to Wingers or any “wing” type resturant for that matter. So expensive. My husband is always disappointed because of the prices for so little that you get. So I made a double batch of this recipe and my family couldn’t get enough. You know it’s good when nobody is talking and they are licking their fingers. Thank you for sharing your recipe :)

    • So glad you guys liked them!!! They go so fast at our house too! My kids DEVOUR them!!! Thanks for your comment!
