“Left wing, chicken wing, it don’t make no difference to me.”-Woody Guthrie
When I’m at Costco I make sure to pick up a bag of chicken wings for the freezer.
I find excellent deals on wings at my local market as well.
Watch sale ads closely and you can often pick up bags of chicken for under $3.00!
***Use 5 Pounds of Chicken Wings***
(That is 2 of the average sized Frozen chicken wing bags or about half of the Costco size… to make it easy.)
Turn your Crock Pot on HIGH.
Spray the inside of your Crock Pot with cooking spray or grease your favorite way to prevent sticking.
If you are using frozen chicken wings- Break them apart inside the bag so that they don’t pour out in a solid lump.
If you are using fresh chicken wings- Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper, spread your chicken wings out across it. Sprinkle with Lawry’s Garlic Salt and Pepper and pop them under your oven broiler on high for 5 minutes before placing into your Crock Pot. It gives them a nice crisp.
In large bowl whisk together:
2 1/2 Cups of Honey
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
2 Cups of your favorite Barbecue Sauce
1/4 Cup Oil
2 Teaspoons crushed Garlic
When well blended pour your sauce over your chicken wings inside your crock pot, put the lid on.
Let it cook for 3 hours.
I ALWAYS serve chicken wings with celery and ranch dressing.
Wings seem to put my people in a nibbling and dipping mood.
I take advantage of that and always try to throw together a nice veggie tray to sit next it the wings.
People seem to sit down and then absent minded they start snacking on the healthy spread without realising what they are up to.
The last time I served this, I did the math and costed it out.
It was about $4.90 to serve a snack to 9 kids and 3 adults.
Everyone RAVED about the wings!
I was thrilled that I wasn’t stuck in the kitchen while everyone else was visiting.
It was even better when the clean up took me no time at all!
REMEMBER: Spicy people can always ADD hot sauce but when you make them hot, there are many people who can not eat them.
These wings are a hit at our house and I’m sure they will be come a tradition in yours as well!
Don’t forget the paper towels! 😉
Enjoy your wings,
