Jack Daniel's sauce

Whoever follows me on Instagram or on Facebook, knows that I visit T.G.I.Fridays lots of times. Sometimes due to an event I am invited to and many other times because I choose T.G.I.Friays for lunch or dinner.

Yes , I will admit ( if you have not figured it out by yourself or you have not read my post) that I love Fridays. It is the combination of good food, comfortable environment and cheerful staff that makes me choose to often eat there. I have visited the 8 out of their 9 branches and it's impressive that all of them have the same quality of food and service.

One of my favorite dishes is the chicken wings with the Jack Daniel's sauce. What a sauce ! I 'm not fond of spicy tastes but I love this sauce. Long ago, I was lucky enough to get from Fridays the recipe for this sauce in a version for home use. A version that is so close to what we taste in the restaurants ! I have made it already several times and I enjoy it, but the whole package of environment/food/service still is my preference.

Today, I will share with you the recipe of this sauce. For those who want to enjoy it at home and for those who are away and do not have the chance to visit one of the T.G.I.Fridays restaurants. It is a recipe that has no difficulties, just needs some attention to its denisty! Should be tight but runny.

Enjoy it.
