Helpful hints

  • Buy fresh wing drummettes. A 1-1/4 pound package contains 12 drummettes. If unavailable, ask your butcher to cut whole chicken wings into drummette size.
  • Boneless chicken pieces may be used in this recipe. Check for doneness after 20 minutes.
  • Hot sauce brands vary greatly in sodium. Choose a brand with less than 140 mg sodium per teaspoon.
  • Make the Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce (under Sauces & Seasonings in the recipe collection) and use 1/2 cup plus the Tabasco sauce if desired.
