Can't recall where I got this recipe, I believe it was from my SIL......want to give credit where it's due. It's delicious and quite simple to make. I often make it with just chicken breast.

Loved this sauce! I only used 2-1/2 pounds of chicken wings but made the full amount of sauce so we could serve it over rice. Cooked the wings for 1 hour and they were fall-apart tender. I also used sugar-free apricot jam. YUM!!
