Reviews for Sweet & Spicy Chicken Wings
"What a surprise! I made these for New year Eve, but forgot about them in the crockpot. I spooned them out, and the next day, we broiled them. Loved them.! A little worried that they would be to sweet or soupy, but they turned out great!!!"
"I 've made this 3 times in 1 month! My family & friends love it!"
"I'd rate 3-I too overcooked a bit, but they are kind of soupy so I took out of the sauce and under the broiler for a few to make not quite so messy."
"good flavor. i broiled the wings first, 3" from heat - just to give them a bit of crispness, then transfered to crock pot. the wings were very tender; however, i overcooked mine a bit - should've cut back on cooking time since i broiled them."
