HONEY BUFFALO SAUCE:

- 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 1 Tablespoon Melted Organic Butter

1 pkg (2.5 lbs) Frozen Organic Chicken Wings, completely thawed and patted dry (or fresh)

HONEY BUFFALO STICKY SAUCE:
- Remove the wings from the slow cooker and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Scoop out 1 cup of the remaining sauce from the slow cooker and pour into a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup Buffalo sauce.
- Remove a few tablespoons of the sauce from the saucepan and place in a small bowl. Add 2 Tablespoons of Organic Cornstarch or Arrowroot and whisk until there are no lumps. Pour this into the saucepan and whisk to combine. Cook for approx. 4-5 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
TO BROWN THE WINGS:
- Turn on the broiler of your oven and brush the wings with the sauce and put on the top rack to brown.
- Broil them for 2-4 min or until caramelized. Turn the wings over, brush with more buffalo sauce and repeat on the other side.
- Place the wings on your favorite plate alongside some Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing and some carrot and celery sticks.
