Uncle Dougie’s Chicago Style Chicken Wing Sauce Review
Uncle Dougie’s Chicago Style Chicken Wing Sauce is a marinade that’s spicy without being hot. Red peppers, peppers, and malt vinegar make up the bulk of the flavor, with a little sugar and some spices and seasonings thrown in for good measure.
Nothing fancy, but definitely a tasty marinade for chicken wings, chicken breast, or even as a turkey injection sauce (with melted butter added).
The marinade needs to be shaken well to blend the spice and season ingredients, which settle to the bottom of the bottle.
What I found to be the best way to use Uncle Dougie’s Chicago Style Chicken Wing Sauce was to dump the bottle in a bowl, add a stick of melted butter, and follow it up with three heaping tablespoons of Orange Krush hot sauce. The Orange Krush is a habanero base that adds a nice heat kick to the wing marinade. I soaked about twenty wings in the marinade for three hours, put them in a deep baking dish, then added the rest of the sauce and cooked them for about an hour and a half. I drained the marinade and let the wings go for another twenty minutes. What I ended up with was a golden brown pan of wings that had an enjoyable flavor with a subtle, spicy heat. If you like your wings hotter, you could add more of the Orange Krush, or choose your own favorite sauce, to notch it up. This particular recipe was good enough for the whole family to eat, without giving anyone heat overdose.
As a turkey injection, Uncle Dougie’s Chicago Style Chicken Wing Sauce with butter and a good bit of Tony’s seasoning works well. Inject the mixture throughout the turkey and you’ll have a juicy, flavorful bird your holiday guests will enjoy. You can also use the mixture on chicken breasts on the grill. Brush it on at the start of the cooking process, then periodically throughout, and your grilled chicken breasts will stay moist and take on the flavors of your marinade sauce.
While there’s nothing extraordinary about this wing marinade, it makes a great base for adding your own flavors, allowing you to turn a good marinade into an excellent marinade.
