I have never been a big wing fan. They are too messy for me. However, my boys, including my husband, absolutely love them. So, because I love my family, I make wings every couple weeks. I must admit that this recipe will only feed about two people, so I usually have to double or triple it to feed all six of us. This is by far my boys’ favorite dinner. I usually like to serve these wings with steamed veggies and some form of potato, like mashed or baked.

Crockpot Red Wings

1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce

3/4 cup water

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup yellow or white onions diced

10-12 chicken wing pieces

Mix all ingredients except for chicken in the crockpot until well combined. Add chicken pieces to mix in the crockpot. Stir everything together so that chicken is coated with the mix. Set the crockpot on low for 5 to 6 hours.
