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.
