Winger’s Sticky Fingers Copycat Recipe

If there is one thing I crave, it is Winger’s Sticky Fingers.
Winger’s is a restaurant in Utah, Idaho and a few other states and they are famous for their wings and sticky fingers.  This has been a family favorite for a few years and we just can’t seem get enough of them!  They are always a hit!
My husband and I were cravin’ some sticky finger goodness last weekend so we got some take out and realized we like this copycat recipe more than the original!
 And you don’t have to pay a tip! 🙂

  1. I waited tables at Winger's for years through my undergrad, and ate more than my fair share of sauce in various ways. Now we live in Arkansas, and today the sticky finger craving hit. For date night tonight, we are whipping up a batch of this sauce, and I.cannot.wait. Also, this sauce will last for weeks in the fridge, in case anyone was wondering. Weeks.

    Went to the University of Idaho in Moscow, Id and Wingers was the highlight of the community. Def tried this recipe last year and re did it this time i either deep fry chicken wings or put them in my smoker then saute in the reduced wingers sauce. bomb!
