This is one of my own recipes I created. I bring them to a lot of parties. You can make them as hot or not as hot if you want. They taste awesome either way. No one would ever guess what ingredients are used. These are a family favorite that I am sharing. Grab a napkin and dig in. Enjoy!

How to Make Cranberry Sweet Hot Wings By Noreen

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the slow cooker (Crock Pot) to high heat. Heat broiler in oven to high. Note: You will cook in Crock Pot on low for 2 hours or high at 1-2 hours.
  2. Cut the tips off of chicken wings. Discard tips of wings. Cut the joint in half. Wings should be in 2 pieces per wing to cook. Set aside.
  3. In Crock Pot, put the cranberry sauce in 1st. Chop up the sauce until it is very mashed looking. Add all ingredients to Crock Pot except for the chicken. Stir and combine ingredients.
  4. Foil line a baking sheet. Place chicken on a baking sheet and broil the chicken in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until browned nicely. Turn after 5-10 minutes. It also helps get rid of some of the grease in it.
  5. Remove from oven place wings in Crock Pot. Stir and toss in the sauce. Check and stir once during cooking. If you stir too much the wings will fall apart. Cover and cook for 1-2 hours on high. 2 hours on low. Check on them. Although they taste great falling off the bone, they are hard to eat with your hands. LOL
  6. Remove chicken from Crock Pot to baking sheet again. Pour some of the sauce over the wings from the pot. Place under broiler to brown and make the sauce stick. Discard remaining sauce in the pot, or save for dipping. Keep warm in clean Crock Pot uncovered. Let the party begin!
