Valentina Chicken Wings

I created these wing when I was introduced to Valentina Hot Sauce by my Mexican amigos. Everyone who tastes them loves them and wants the recipe so here it is and it could not be simpler! I just season the chicken with Adobo, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper, toss and rub it in good. Now it is up to you whether you want to grill them or put them in the oven, I quite honestly prefer the oven at 375 until nice and crispy I use my convection setting. This time I decided to add some thighs, equally delicious. Next I added some Valentina to a sauce pan and tossed in a chunk of butter and basted the chicken after it was nice and crispy a few times on each side, then finished them under the broiler for a few minute. Watch them carefully the Valentina seems to brown much quicker that other hot sauces I have used. Compared to other hot sauces Valentina seems to have a lot more flavor and a smoky undertone. Today is the Super Bowl so I am going to try this on a whole roasting chicken.
