When I took these savory, slow-cooked appetizers to work, they were gone before I even got a bite!  Spicy ketchup, vinegar, molasses and honey blend together in a tangy sauce that makes the wings lip-smacking good.

Tangy Barbecue Wings Recipe


Tangy Barbecue Wings

5 lb. chicken wings

2 ½ cups ketchup

2/3 cup white vinegar

2/3 cup honey

½ cup molasses

2 to 3 Tbsp. hot pepper sauce

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

½ tsp. onion powder

½ tsp. chili powder

½ to 1 tsp. liquid smoke, optional


Preheat oven to 375 F.  Using a sharp knife, cut through the two wing joints; discard wing tips.  Arrange remaining wing pieces in two greased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan.  Bake 30 minutes; drain.  Turn wings; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until juices run clear.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine remaining ingredients; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain wings.  Place one-third of the chicken in a 5 quart slow cooker; top with one-third of the sauce.  Repeat layers twice.  Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours.  Stir before serving.          2 dozen wings
