Honey Glazed Chicken Wings

Also called sticky wings.  I sorted through several recipes on line looking for just the perfect looking recipe to follow.  I ran down some promising leads and ended up merging several into what I think turned out very well.  I thought to bookmark two of the sites:  The crock pot idea came from here, and the sauce came from this place.I started out yesterday by making a marinade for the chicken with a recipe  from another site that I can’t seem to find now.  I think I remember the main parts:  a cup of soy sauce, some sesame oil, the juice of a lemon, some minced garlic,  a couple of tablespoons of hoisin sauce, and several teaspoons of fresh grated ginger root.  I tossed everything into a Ziplock bag and left it in the fridge until 3 o’clock this morning.  Don’t ask.  While I was up I put the chicken plus all the marinade into the crock pot on low.  I dumped everything out into a colander to drain about noon today, the chicken was falling off the bone so I handled it gently as I could.  I mixed the sauce from the latter recipe, adding a good squeeze of ketchup for just a touch more color, and tossed the wings in it for a minute then arrayed them on a foil lined baking tray to get a last bit of browning under a broiler.  Drizzle all of the remaining sauce atop the wings.

That worked out nicely.  I let them broil when the rice cooker got towards the end of its cycle, turning them all once.  Since they were already fully cooked all I wanted was some color, and they took maybe 10 minutes.  When the rice was done the chicken was ready.  They plated up prettily.

A scatter of chopped green onions for  garnish finished the presentation.  This was just a great tasting dinner.  Must have been the honey.
