Food-a-licious Friday {109} Homemade Wing Sauce

Hello there!

Are you as ready for the weekend as I am? I have a great recipe to share with y’all today…perfect for a weekend of celebrating DADS! Are you ready to learn how to make Homemade Wing Sauce with just a few simple ingredients? This is my husband’s wing sauce recipe and it comes with a warning… it’s SUPER spicy! So be sure to read the notes on how to make the sauce more mild.

wing sauce1


5 tbs olive oil/vegetable oil

1/4 c white vinegar

1 tbs minced fresh garlic

cayenne powder (1/2 packet)

1/2 c butter

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2 c water

sea salt & black pepper (to taste)



In a medium saucepan on low heat, combine oil, vinegar, cayenne powder. Make into a paste.

*You can find the cayenne powder packets near the seasonings and dry peppers. Sometimes it’s found with the Latin food items. It’s a red powder.

Raise heat to medium and add all other ingredients.

Whisk and caramelize sauce. Sauce will reduce by one-third. (Estimated time about 25 minutes)

**This sauce is VERY spicy. I mean VERY VERY hot! An old pizza joint trick is to add melted butter to a little bit of the sauce, mix and then put it on your wings. Be sure to taste the sauce before adding it to your wings. The more butter, the more mild the sauce will get. The less butter, the hotter the sauce.

Once you have your wing sauce the temperature you like (I’m a mild kind of girl but my nephew LOVES him some super spicy wings), pour some over your wings (baked or deep fried) in a mixing bowl and toss until your wings are covered.

Serve with carrots & celery…and don’t forget the Ranch or Blue Cheese!

  1. The recipe looks good! I was just wondering how much a “1/2 packet” of cayenne was. I buy mine in jars. I’m going to try 1/8 tsp.
