Oooey Gooey Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings

Here's a great honey barbecue wing recipe to add to the list of party wings - Buffalo Style Hot Wings deep fried and coated with a buttery hot sauce blend, crispy Southern Fried Hot Wings, reminiscent of southern fried chicken and Sticky Sweet and Spicy Wings, made with Hoisin and Thai sweet chili sauce.

I make chicken wings a lot, especially during football season, but I rarely section them unless we have company. To do that, I just use those handy, dandy kitchen shears to cut the tips and cut into the joint between the drummettes and wing sections. Don't toss away those wing tips though - bag and freeze them to add to chicken backs to make a homemade stock for Southern Style Chicken and Dumplings or a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. Sprinkle the wings generously with all purpose seasoning on both sides and let sit for 5 minutes.

I like to sear these BBQ wings first in a skillet, just because wings tend to completely fall apart in the slow cooker, as I think the searing helps to give them color and keep them tender while binding them together, but that's just me. You may prefer to skip that step.

I use a basic chili sauce in this dish which adds great flavor, not heavy in heat.

Heinz Chili Sauce is a tomato-based product, containing tomato puree, onion, garlic and other seasonings.
