My husband always calls this recipe "finger-licking good," and the sweet-and-spicy flavor really is to die for! The sauce is also great on chicken breasts. —Linda Gardner, Richmond, Virginia

MY REVIEW

Well I made them, but it was 15 degrees out so I didn't grill:)) I made the sauce and reserved a cup. I poured it on top of my wings in the crockpot. Cooked them till they were done 3 hours or so. Before they started falling off the bone. I took them out draining the liquid and put them on a baking sheet, brushed them w the reserved sauce and baked them on 450 until they got crispy...mmmmm yummy!
