Jean's SWEET MERCY Wing Sauce!

In a sauce pan on the stove add...

16 oz Tomato Sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
1/8-1/4 cup honey (depending on how sweet ya want it)
1/2 tbsp paprika
½ tbsp black pepper
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce...(maybe a little more if you like)
2 tbsp Pickapeppa sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
½ tbsp or more minced garlic...or garlic powder
½ tbsp onion powder 2 tbsp (or more) hot chili sauce..(I like Sriracha)
1 tsp or more of Wasabi

Sprinkle a little liquid smoke in the brew. Now bring to a boil for a few minutes while stirring to “cook it down” a bit and then pour on your wings.


2 Doz Chicken Wings
Canola oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Cup Franks Hot Sauce
1/4 Cup Honey

Boil the chicken wings with a little salt until cooked through and not bloody. Drain and refrigerate.

For the Sauce, melt butter in a sauce pan. Add vinegar and seasonings and bring to a boil. Add Hot sauce and honey and simmer for about 20 minutes. Reserve.

Toss wings with canola oil to coat. Drain excess and transfer to a foil lined sheet pan and season with salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes until crispy. Toss with hot sauce to coat and serve immediately with celery and blue cheese.

Halupki soup was amazing! Smelled and Tasted like Mom's. Reheated well. I'm not the cook of the family, but I could do this one. Keep 'em coming!!

Is it a 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar for Nick's wing sauce?

What do you mean when you say 1 1/2 lb. meatloaf mix?

on 02.04.11 Nick F. commented

Yes it is Apple Cider Vinegar for the sauce

Meatloaf mix is a blend of ground beef, pork and veal. If you'd prefer you can use all beef if it suits your taste!!

God Bless and Enjoy!

The amount of apple cinder vinegar is 1/2 cup? It just says "1/2". Don't want to assume "cup", in case it 1/2 Tablespoon.

Don't know how I missed that one! Yes it's a 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar! Enjoy the wings and try them both! They were both very tasty!

Don't forget to check out the video too!

God Bless and Enjoy!

where do you find pickapeppa sauce?

on 02.05.11 NIck F. commented

You may be able to find it in Wegmans. I believe that the one in Corning carries it but I am unaware of where Jean finds it!

Hi Nancy! Yes, I find my pickapeppa sauce at Wegmans in the hot sauce section. Best wishes and God Bless!!

I made the sweet mercy wing sauce for the Superbowl but couldn't serve it - the black pepper put it over the top - I think...I followed the recipie to the "t" though - any thoughts?
