Cook's Country Slow Cooker Sticky Wings

This recipe was in the Cooks Country Magazine  Feb/March 2010  issue.

The meat was super tender and the sauce is really good.

1 3 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

4 garlic cloves, peeled

3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

4 pounds chicken wings, halved at joint and wingtips removed

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup tomato paste

Pulse ginger, garlic, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne in food processor until finely ground. Add mixture to slow cooker insert. Add chicken and toss until combined.

Cover and cook on low until fat renders and chicken is tender, 3 to 4 hours. Using slotted spoon, remove wings from slow cooker and transfer to clean large bowl (discard the liquid in slow cooker). Let wings cool 20 minutes (or cool briefly and refrigerate up to 24 hours).

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat broiler. Set wire rack inside rimmed baking sheet and spray rack with baking spray. Whisk water, tomato paste, remaining sugar, remaining soy sauce, and remaining cayenne pepper in bowl. Add half of sauce to bowl with cooled wings and toss gently to coat. Arrange wings, skin side up, on prepared rack. Broil until wings are lightly charred and crisp around edges, 10-15 minutes. Flip wings, brush with remaining sauce, and continue to broil until well caramelized, about 3 minutes.
