Two Non-Spicy Chicken Wing Sauces Your Customers Will Love

یاسمین قاسمی

Chicken wings are a classic bar-and-grill style appetizer, but not everyone loves the traditional, spicy Buffalo sauce they're often topped with. In order to cater to customers who like to keep things a bit milder, try making one or both of these non-spicy wing sauces for use on your restaurant's wings.

Honey-Lime Sauce

Infused with the flavor of fresh limes, this sauce has a nice balance of tart and sweet. The recipe makes enough to coat about 100 wings and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week if needed.


  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup honey
  • 6 limes
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Juice the limes, and set the juice aside. Do not discard the peels—instead, slice them into strips. Place the honey and butter in a saucepan, and heat it over low until the butter is melted. Add the lime peels to the pan, and continue cooking over low for 15 minutes.

Strain the lime peels out of the honey butter mixture. Add the canola oil, lime juice, and salt to the pan. Stir well, and then transfer to a storage container. Use about ¼ cup of sauce for every 10 wings.

Raspberry Barbecue Sauce

This sweet, sticky sauce takes barbecue to the next level with a hint of tart, fruity flavor from real raspberries. Store the sauce in the refrigerator for up to a week; the recipe makes enough to coat up to 150 wings.


  • 3 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • ¼ cup Irish whiskey

Press the raspberries through a sieve. Discard the seeds, and place whatever passed through the sieve in a large saucepan. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the whiskey, to the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes. Stir the sauce regularly, and do not allow it to fully boil as this will scorch the sugar.

Remove the sauce from the heat, and stir in the whiskey. Return to the heat, and heat gently for 2 more minutes. Transfer the sauce to a storage container, and use as needed. You'll need about ¼ cup of sauce to coat 10 wings.

A good chicken wing is an American food favorite, and with these recipes, your customers can enjoy excellent chicken wing flavors without overwhelming spice.
