I made these for a July 4th cookout and followed the recipe as written, except that I made these in a crockpot. I prepared the chicken as you would for the oven, but I layered the wings in my oval crockpot and then poured the sauce over the wings. I cooked then on low for 8 1/2 hours and they turned out perfectly. They were a big hit at the cookout and were gone almost immediately. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks.
This is a perfect dish to serve for a party! We had it for a weeknight dinner and it serves well with rice to sop up the sauce (kinda-of a cousin to General Gau's chicken). It wasn't fully crunchy due to it baking with the sauce, but resulted in more of a sticky finger chicken with a slightly crisp texture. Thanks so much, Lavender Lynn for sharing. Made it for FYC.
Yum, beautiful blend of flavors yet so simple to put together. I can't really think of many more compliments to add that other reviewers haven't already covered other than to say it's probably also the ultimate in a budget meal as well. A real restaurant quality meal for the cost of a cheeseburger! It was amazing served along with rice and a couple of steamed vegies.

I gotta tell you..instead of chicken wings i used cut up pork tenderloin. I made the sauce exactly as the recipe says but with the pork and it was fantastic. I too served it with rice and my father who is hard to please thought it was great too. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making it again. I will also try it with the chicken. Fantastic.
WOW!!!!! YOU HAVE GOTTA TRY THIS!!I can't believe this hasn't had more ratings! At my house, I fix everyone's first plate and then they are on thier own after that. I make my DD's first, followed by DH, then DS's and mine. I just gave DD her plate and turned to make DH, and she starts saying "I give it a 10!, I give it a 10!" This was enjoyed by all here. DH even gave it the full 5. This is saying a whole lot coming from my very picky eaters!I did substitute cut up chicken breast for the wing pieces as that is the only part of the chicken DH will eat.
