What can I use if my family does not like Buffalo wing sauce or any hot sauce for that matter? I found a recipe for wings and potato casserole that sounds good but not if it's hot.

    Does your family not like the flavors associated with hot sauce? Or do they just not like the "burn" of the hot sauce?

  • There are plenty of places that serve wings with more mild sauces ... barbecue sauce, sweet & sour, etc.

Really, any sauce you use with other savory meet dishes can be nice on chicken wings. Options include:

  • BBQ sauce
  • most Asian ready made sauces at your grocery store (teriyaki, sweet and sour, etc., even better make a homemade version of one of these sauces)
  • honey mustard
  • melted butter (or extra virgin olive oil) with garlic, Parmesan cheese, and your favorite herbs
  • lemon or lime juice & salt (possibly add honey if you like it sweet)
  • vinegar & salt
  • real maple syrup and salt
  • peanut butter and jelly sauce (some of these recipes include chilies, which you can ignore)
  • you can even wrap wings in bacon, for a dryer but quite flavorful wing
