“These are amazing -- so easy and so good! Don't let the amount of pepper scare you these are not peppery just plain good! My dh and I polished off the 3 pounds of chicken wings between us - so unless you are serving these as appetizers the amount these serve may be off a bit. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July 1984)”
