I took these wings to work, and they vanished before I got a bite. The tangy sauce is lip-smacking good. —Sherry Pitzer, Troy, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds chicken wings
  • 2-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 2/3 cup white vinegar
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons hot pepper sauce

Nutritional Facts

1 wing (2 sections) equals 178 calories, 7 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 30 mg cholesterol, 458 mg sodium, 19 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 10 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Using a sharp knife, cut through the two wing joints; discard wing tips. Arrange remaining wing pieces in two greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Bake 30 minutes; drain. Turn wings; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until juices run clear.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Drain wings. Place one-third of the chicken in a 5-qt. slow cooker; top with one-third of the sauce. Repeat layers twice. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours. Stir before serving. Yield: about 2 dozen wings.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

MY REVIEW

"I agree with KarenKeefe. It is simple if you just put the whole things into the crockpot and cook it for 8 hours. I do that all the time. It does save your time."

"The recipe is a lot of work for what could be so simple. Cut the wings apart, (pitch out the tips), brown the wing pieces in a deep skillet. Pour a mixture of 1 can of coke and 1/4 cup of ketchup and simmer until the mixture cooks down to a sweet barbeque sauce. (About 25 minutes) It's great with no work. Extremely easy for "tail-gating"."

"I do this with drumsticks instead of wings because they are so much meatier. I put them in my slow cooker on low and when I come they're done. Also you can vary the type of sauce just the way you want, Sometimes I do Teriyaki, BBQ, Thai peanut sauce, Philippine style adobo, etc . I have time in the morning to prep vegetables to go along with the chicken and that makes dinner a quick breeze."
