Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The comments below refer to broiling but the recipe calls for baking. Which is the best way to prepare it?

We suggest baking. :)

What kind of hot sauce? I'm guessing tabasco or something like that.

You can use whatever hot sauce you have in the house. It's all about your preference. Thank you for your question!

I don't have a broiler. Can I bake it and for how ling?

Try cooking them in a 400 degree F. oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until the chicken is done.

The best idea in YEARS. So delicious and so quick. It will be a standard in my kitchen from now on. You have made my day!

Is it necessary to use the broiler, and the hot sauce? Can it be prepared in a Nuwave oven without the hot sauce?

You can definitely leave the hot sauce out. As far as cooking in a Nuwave oven, we have not tested the recipe this way. If you use one regularly and know it will cook the chicken to your liking, you can certainly try. This chicken is nice and crunchy when broiled, we are not sure if you will get the same results with a Nuwave oven. Good luck!
