Crock-Pot Sweet and Savory Chicken Wings

My oldest loves eating chicken wings. She prefers a mild or slightly spicy wing but the older she gets, the more she will eat wings in just about any sauce. I like to try new sauces at least once a month. And, my youngest really loved the sweet taste in these wings.

Once the Crock-Pot Sweet and Savory Chicken Wings cook, you can toast them a little in the broiler. This helps to put a crispiness to the outside of the wings. Add the wings back to the slow cooker and stir them in the sauce well before serving.

Chicken can be cooked frozen in the crock-pot. Frozen chicken does add more liquid to the slow cooker. Keep this in mind when cooking.

Remember, chicken has to be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Check the chicken with a meat thermometer before removing the chicken from the slow cooker.

Slow cooker clean up after: This sauce leaves a big mess in the crock. You can use a liner before adding the ingredients. Crock-Pot liners are easy to use and great for an after clean up. Just remove the bag and toss. If you prefer not to use the liners, soak the crock in soapy water over night. You will be able to wipe out the crock with ease.
