Since my sons were young I've made wings a number of times for them (who are now both mature adults). This Christmas I made this recipe, and both of them said these were the best tasting ones I've ever made. They were so easy! Two days in advance I baked them in the oven until cooked, as per the recipe, and made the sauce according to the recipe. On Christmas Day I simply put them in the crock pot as instructed. Fabulous recipe, and now a family fav to be sure!
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 skipped the oven and put these right into the crockpot.. Cooked on low for 8 hours. They came out just right! Great find!
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.
These are my go to wings from now on!!!! Delish
I just made these for a tailgaiting party and they were delicious!! The flavor was perfect!! A keeper for sure!
Good recipe, but I felt there was too much vinegar. I ended up adding double the amount of honey along with 1/4 cup brown sugar. I would definitely make these again, but next time would first cut back on the amount of vinegar. I also used regular ketchup, since I wanted a little more mellow taste.
