Great sauce. I agree w/other reveiwers that it would be good on legs. I put the wings in the crock pot on high for four hours removed the wings to an oven dish added some corn starch to the sauce to thicken poured it over the chicken in the pan then roasted them in a 300 degree oven for an hour or so to help the texture. They were a hit at a Super Bowl Party. Oh a side note most frozen chicken wings are ice glazed and if you thaw them or rinse the glaze off before using your recipes will be MUCH less watery.

I wanted to make wings in my slow cooker because it would be so easy to do - I didn't like them this way. The chicken was very tender - fell off the bone - which was good. The sauce however didn't stick to the wings the way I like it to. The fat from the wings combined with the sauce I used and just ended up being watery. I would not recommend doing wings in a slow cooker unless you like wings without much sauce sticking to them. Read More

I used chicken drumsticks instead since they were cheaper and I'm glad! This recipe makes the meat very tender and and delicious and any skin a bit soggy so the drumsticks worked best I think. I made this for a crowd as a sidedish for pizza and everyone was raving! No need to alter these unusual ingredients.. it's delicious the way it is!! Read More

I went into the kitchen this morning to prepare this meal for dinner. I decided not to make this in the crockpot. I made the sauce then put the chicken with it into a ziplock bag. ( I used some wings and leg quarters) my husband prefers dark meat. When I got ready to make dinner I preheated the oven to 350. I put the chicken on a hot grill for about 10 minutes or so turning often. Then I put the chicken in the oven for about 30 min. I am rating this a five because this has to be one of the best sauces I have tried. My husband loved it. It was tangy spicy ( not hot tho)and sweet all at the same time. I printed this recipe out so I will always have this sauce. Thank you. Sincerely Judy Read More

I took the advice of another reviewer and broiled the wings for a few minutes before placing in the crock pot. I also stirred a few times during the cooking process to make sure all the wings were coated. Everybody really liked them. Some reviewers are stating these wings don't taste like "buffalo" wings. However the name of the recipe and the ingredients say nothing of "buffalo" wings. This is a great recipe for chicken wings in a savory sauce. End of story. Read More

This was a big hit in my family. I precooked the wings before adding them to the crock pot and I also broiled them for about 5 - 7 minutes when they were cooked only because my husband decided the sauce need thickening which took a little extra time. My son also said that this recipe out ranked any other dinner that I had made and that eventually I would run out of really good recipes to try and have nothing left to cook. I replied "that's my Plan"!! Read More

Ok I did what others did by baking first then putting them into the crockpot. I found that all the sauce went to the bottom though so I didn't feel like my chicken got thoroughly coated. To avoid missing the BBQ flavor I cranked the crockpot up to High for 2hrs then took the wings out and placed them in a dish and took the BBQ sauce out of the bottom and popped them in a 350 degree oven for about 30-40min basting them with the leftover BBQ sauce. My care group LOVED them! Those were like the best BBQ chicken wings I've had in a long time. Read More

These got mixed in my house. They were great if you like boiled chicken but they weren't like buffalo wings at all. The meat was super tender and the flavor was great so I gave it five stars but if you are after buffalo wing type chicken the crock pot really isn't the way to go. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly but also used some of the reviews as a guide. I first thawed out the wings so there were no ice crystals left. (I always use fresh wings that i have previously frozen). after cooking it for 5 hours I drained the wings into a bowl and then put them on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. I poured the sauce into a pan added a cornstarch slurry (2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water) and thicked it to a bbq sauce consistancy. then basted them with the sauce and baked for 1 hour at 300 degrees taking them out every 20 minutes to baste. they were perfect.
