This recipe calls for a few staple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Add them to your slow cooker with some chicken and within hours you will have tender, juicy wings with deep flavor. The meat falls right off the bone as you bite into them. I made a batch and we had enough to eat as leftovers the next day. Brad even thought that they were better as leftovers!
