  • Yield: Makes about 4 dozen


  • 5 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 1/2 cups spicy catsup
  • 2/3 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Optional: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon smoke-flavored cooking sauce


Arrange wings in a greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Drain; turn wings and return to oven for an additional 20 to 25 minutes.

While wings are baking, combine remaining ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes.

Arrange 1/3 of wings in a large slow cooker; top with one cup sauce. Repeat layers twice. Cover and cook on low setting for 3 to 4 hours; stir gently before serving.
