I made these for our Superbowl appetizer dinner. I always make a big deal about our nibbles for the Super Bowl. I have made spicy wings before and thought I would make something tamer and not burn up hubs stomach. These are so delicious. Marinate in the refrigerator before you cook them in the crock pot. Then put them under the broiler after they are tender. Very moist and delicious. These disappeared quickly!
20 whole chicken wings (and legs if you like) (about 4 pounds)
1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tips. Place in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk remaining ingredients until blended. Add to chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight.
Transfer chicken and marinade to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours or until chicken is tender. Using tongs, remove wings to a serving plate. Yield: 20 servings.
To brown wings before serving, preheat broiler. Using tongs, remove wings from slow cooker to a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 3-4 in. from heat 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned.
