Daytona Chicken

Daytona Chicken - grilled chicken with a Buffalo BBQ sacue


A couple of weeks ago, for the Super Bowl, we had Hooter’s Daytona chicken wings.  I loved them!  I was completely shocked, because I usually HATE chicken wings.  The wings were crispy and the sauce was great – sweet heat.  I tried to find a recipe on-line for the Daytona wing sauce, but I had no luck.  We had to figure it out on our own! 

We started with a Honey BBQ Sauce and added Texas Pete until it tasted right.  It ended up being a 3 to 1 ratio of BBQ to Texas Pete.  I don’t usually fry food, so we grilled some chicken breasts and it turned out  great.  I might change it up a little next time – Mesquite BBQ sauce, honey and Texas Pete.  We both wanted a little more mesquite flavor.  I guess if you had a nice, fancy grill, you could just use wood chips.  All in all, this was a great healthy makeover of my new guilty pleasure.
