Reviews for Marinated Chicken Wings
"With so many negative reviews I was a bit hesitant to try this one. Added the Worcestershire sauce as a few mentioned and tossed them on the grill. Only marinated for maybe half an hour and brushed on marinade while grilling. Everyone in the house enjoyed it!"
"There is only one word to describe this recipe, terrible. I had my doubts, but the photo in the new cookbook made them look great. It was not until I had the wings marinating did I see these reviews and realized that the recipe may not work. I even switched cooking these in the slow cooker to baking them in a cast iron dutch oven in hopes of adding color and thickening the sauce. It did not help. I ended up broiling them as others suggested and it helped some, but overall this was a complete failure. This is the first and last time I use this recipe. Yuck!"
"Awful! Imagine the taste of wet dog. BLECK. These were absolutely the worst thing I've ever made. Just like everyone else, they were nothing like the picture. Very pale. I thought the smell was wonderful. Inedible and a waste of expensive wings."
"I love using my crock pot and this recipe was perfect. I think I ate the most, there were no leftovers. The only problem was I forgot to marinate them over night..so they only marinated for about 7 hrs but they still were good.. I will be making these again but will make sure i fellow the recipe!"
"I thought these had good flavor and everyone seemed to enjoy them. They were a little pale coming out of the cooker so I ran them quickly under the broiler and that perked them right up. Next time I'll probably brown them before putting cooking them."
"OMG - there has to be an error in the recipe! I followed EXACTLY, and these things were disgusting! They turned out nothing like the picture, and were tough and nasty, too. I had to throw the whole 4# of wings away. They look NOTHING like the picture. TOH, does your kitchen actually test the recipes you get from readers?? This was seriously bad. The rater who liked them could NOT have followed the recipe as written."
"So disappointed. First like others have said my wings looked nothing like in the picture, the sauce did not stick at all so the wings just looked and tasting like I had cooked them in chicken broth. Ended up tossing them in red hot so they would be edible and we wouldn't have to throw all those wings away. Should have just deep fried them."
"I thought the wings had good flavor. My kids liked them, my husband not so much. I would make the marinade again but probably cook them in the oven or BBQ. I agree that mine did not come out looking like the picture at all either. I let mine cook 4 hours in hopes that the marinade would thicken and put a glaze on the wings but it did not. I used the wine and not the chicken broth. Overall the recipe was quick and easy which was great for a weeknight dinner."
