Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chicken wingettes (about 30)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
  • Sesame seeds, optional

Directions

Sprinkle chicken with a dash of salt and pepper. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-10 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a greased 5-qt. slow cooker.
Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, liquid smoke if desired and remaining salt; pour over wings. Toss to coat.
Cover and cook on low for 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 hours or until chicken juices run clear. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled fully-cooked wings in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Reheat wings in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan in a preheated 325° oven until heated through, covering if necessary to prevent browning. Serve as directed.
Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

"I used chicken breasts instead of wings. I tasted the sauce and ended up adding additional seasoning to hide the ketchup flavor a little. I would make again."

"The sauce was very tasty, but I was disappointed that it didn't thicken up well at all. I used drumsticks since they were cheaper and there's more meat on them. I should have removed the skin from these because they got a little slimy. Taste was awesome though!"

"They were very good. I used the suggested method of broiling for 10 minutes on each side and removing extra grease with paper towels. The sauce was not soupy or greasy."

"Saw many posts that the sauce was to Ketchupy so I substituted 1/2 cup chilli sauce for 1/2 cup of the ketchup. I also added an extra Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. I also broild my wings about 15 minutes making them somewhat crispy. Itasted the sauce as I was making it tasted very Yummy to me."

"These were awful. The meat was falling off the bones, but it was overcooked and dry. Even though the sauce had good flavor, I expected a sticky, gooey consistency, but that was not the case.

I was highly disappointed."

"Plenty of sweet tangy sauce, fall apart chicken all makes for a great meal for our sports loving sons and their friends. I cut the wing tips off and halved the 'wing' to have 'more' smaller pieces for finger food. Napkins necessary!"

"I made these for a catering I did and everyone raved about the sauce. I cooked the wings in the oven all the way and then mixed with the sauce in the slow cooker. They were on low for about 3+ hours so the meat was still were falling off the bone, but everyone thought that was great!"
