I love everything about Wingers.  I love the popcorn you get to munch on when you sit down, the yummy vanilla rootbeer, the yummy salads, sandwiches, fries and asphalt pie, but most of all I love their wings.  They are definitely best known for their yummy wings.  I was thrilled when they came out with Sticky Fingers.  They have the same great taste of the wings, but no bone to deal with.  Every time I go there, even if I order a salad, I always order two sticky fingers on the side.  So, I was thrilled to try this recipe.  And let me just tell you, it is pretty darn close to the real deal.  In fact, I bet if you served these for dinner and told everyone you stopped by Winger's on the way home, they wouldn't even notice the difference.  This recipe is definitely a keeper!  It is spicy yet sweet.  So yummy.  Now, you can have Winger's anytime you want.  I made five sticky fingers and served with curly fries.  I did double the sauce recipe and I had plenty for coating the tenders and extra for dipping.   

Winger's Sticky Fingers

Sauce: (enough to coat about 6 tenders)
3 Tbl. Frank's® Hot Sauce (It has to be Frank's®)
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbl. Water

1 cup oil
6 Tyson® frozen breaded chicken tenders

Heat hot sauce, brown sugar and water in a medium saucepan until sugar dissolves.  Meanwhile, heat 1 cup oil in medium skillet.  Add 2-3 tenders at a time, cooking about 3 minutes per side or until crispy.  Remove to a paper towel lined plate and continue with remaining tenders.  When they are all cooked, put tenders in a tupperware bowl with the sauce and shake until completely coated.  Serve with additional sauce and Ranch.  Note: If you want their creamy amazing dressing, just mix the sauce with Ranch. *Double the sauce recipe if you like extra.
