Most slow cooker chicken wings recipes that I came upon were mostly honey bbq wings, honey chipotle wings, or basic buffalo wings. I was so thrilled to find this recipe using apricot preserves. It was something different and sounded so yummy. We loved a local company's food product: Taste Buds's Apricot Preserves out of Wimberley, TX.
The prep was simple enough, and most of the work was done in the slow cooker (of course). The end result, however, wasn't as mouth-watering as I thought. Mostly it was because I used both drums and flats, which should had been only drums because the flats were really shredded being in the slow cooker.
Pulling from Mom Endeavors, she recommended not to use sweet bbq sauce as an option, just a basic bbq sauce. These weren't spicy, so you could always give it a kick with a small swivel of hot sauce, whether in the mixture or on top of finished wings on your own. I drizzled some Pete's Hot Sauce on top of the wings after cooking. These were definitely snacks or appetizers, but not for a full meal. The taste would become too much if you eat a lot of them as a meal.
