Recipe Notes

If you don't want to use a slow cooker - bake in 400 degree oven for 30 - 40 minutes until wings are cooked through.

If you want to make ahead of time you can freeze the wings. Discard the marinade, store in freezer-safe container, and freeze for up to six months.

To reheat - preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add two tablespoons of water to a baking dish. Lay chicken wings out in a single layer and bake covered for about 30 minutes until wings are hot.
