Servings: 4 to 6 servings
  • 3 pounds fresh jumbo chicken wings
  • Salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup soy sauce (reduced-sodium)
  • 2 cups honey
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Sesame seeds (optional)
  1. silver crock potPreheat crock pot/slow cooker on high for 1 hour.  For food safety, it is a good idea to cook on HIGH for the first hour to quickly bring the temperature up to 140 degrees.  Then turn the dial to LOW to cook the chicken wings.  The LOW setting is equal to about 200 degrees F. in the oven.

  2. Preheat oven broiler.

  3. Cut off the tip of each chicken wing and discard it.  Cut the wing in half (cutting at the joint) to make two pieces.  Wash and dry the chicken wings (they need to be very dry); spread chicken wings evenly on a broiler pan.  Sprinkle wing parts with salt and pepper.

  4. Broil chicken wings 4 to 5 inches from heat source for approximately 10 minutes.  Using tongs, turn wings over and broil another 10 minutes or until chicken wings are just a golden brown (browning adds color and helps in flavor development).  Transfer the browned chicken wings to your preheated chock pot.  Make sure you have turned the heat down to LOW on the crock pot.

  5. In a bowl, combine reduced-sodium soy sauce, honey, ketchup, garlic, and vegetable oil.  Pour sauce over the chicken wings in the crock pot.

  6. Cover and cook on low heat for approximately 4 to 5 hours.  Do not lift the lid to stir, as each time you lift the lid, enough heat will escape that the cooking time should be extended by 20 minutes to half an hour.  To check progress without lifting the lid, spin the cover until the condensation falls off.  Then it is easy to see inside.

  7. To serve, garnish with sesame seeds if desired.

  8. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
