Chicken Wings in Teriyaki Sauce

For all those slow cookers out there…

…this one’s for you…

Nothing’s more tasty than homemade teriyaki sauce. Sweet, tangy, & finger-lickin’ good!

I usually go with the super meaty drumsticks, but this time I opted for their midget friends, the wings.

Wings are great for an appetizer at a party, your guests will thank you {and you can thank me later}.

You can throw this together in the morning, so you’ll have time to set up all your crazy party decor.

Here’s how to cook the wings {the party decor is on you}

Close up of uncooked chicken wings.
Cut the wings at the joint and discard the wing-tips. Dust a broiler pan with cooking spray, and place your wings on top. Broil for 10 min on each side {or until golden brown}.
Brown sauce and onions in a crockpot.
Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl combine: 1 large chopped onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, dry sherry {or chicken broth}, ground ginger, honey, and garlic.
{bet ya didn’t think teriyaki sauce was so easy!}

Place your chicken wings in a slow cooker, and cover with the teriyaki sauce.

Cover and let the magic happen.
