Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The cayenne pepper will make the wings very hot. For medium wings, omit the cayenne. For mild wings, omit the cayenne and use a sweet barbecue sauce instead of the red pepper sauce.
  • tip 2
    For very crispy wings, grill until the chicken skin is slightly charred.
