Easy hot wings topped with a sweet & spicy Dr Pepper glaze.
Looking for a fun, crowd-pleasing recipe for game time? I have just the thing–sweet, sticky hot wings.
It is just the easiest dish in the world, guys. A can of Dr Pepper does all the work!
Pop a pound of chicken wings into the oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix up a batch of Dr Pepper hot wing sauce.
Brown sugar, Dr Pepper, soy sauce, and your choice of hot sauce. Whisk it all together on the stovetop, and boom–DONE.
Drizzle it over the wings, and use the extra for dipping sauce. Perfectly sweet and spicy, and SO easy to whip up on game day.
Serve with cool celery and carrots. Maybe some ranch or blue cheese dressing? YUM.
If you’re a one of a kind fan like me, it’s as much about the food as it is the game. Think about it, you always remember the tailgating party by the food! It’s all about getting first dibs on all the yummy game day eats.
Your guests will appreciate how quickly this dish comes together. You won’t miss a beat between quarters. Plus you have the perfect drink to wash it down!
