“Wicked chickens lay deviled eggs.”

I warned you.  One of my obsessions when it comes to food is chicken wings.  When I find another recipe for this dish I’ve just got to try it.  The change I made in this recipe was changing the sugar-free imitation honey into regular honey.  Sugar-free imitation??!!  I also cut down on the Splenda.  It seems that my palette needs a bit less sweetener.

And… I was a bit hesitant because I really enjoy spicy chicken wings and this recipe seemed anything but spicy.  But it was easy so I had to give it a try.  Hot sauce can always be added.


3 pounds chicken wings

1/2 cup honey

1 T Splenda

1/2 cup soy sauce

2 T oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 T lo-carb ketchup


Cut wings into drummies and season them with salt and pepper.  (Spellcheck wants to change “drummies” to “dummies”.  Love that spellcheck.)  Place into your crockpot. I had slightly over 3 pounds and was able to fit them in in a single layer.

Stir together the remaining ingredients and drizzle over the wings.  If not in a single layer, stir the wings to coat.  Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours.


Ta Da!

A lovely, sweet chicken wing recipe.  Were you listening?  I like spicy.  I thickened the sauce that resulted and added a bit of chipotle and tabasco into this thickened sauce.  Sans sauce, my husband will enjoy these.  I need saucy and the adjustment made them, in my opinion, perfect.
