These sweet, spicy, sticky chicken wings are lip-smacking good! You could use fresh peaches in place of canned, but if doing so, I would add a few tablespoons of brown sugar. —Sue Falk, Sterling Heights, Michigan

  • 3 pounds chicken wings (about 1 dozen)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (29 ounces) sliced peaches in extra-light syrup, undrained
  • 1/2 cup whiskey
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • Minced chives, optional


  1. Pat chicken wings dry. Using a sharp knife, cut through the 2 wing joints; discard wing tips. Season wings with salt and pepper. Place in a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker.
  2. Pulse peaches with syrup in a food processor until pureed. Add the next 5 ingredients; pulse to combine. Pour over wings; toss to coat. Cook, covered, on low until chicken is tender, 4-6 hours.
    Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high until sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes.
    Preheat broiler. Remove wings to a 15x10x1-in. pan; arrange in a single layer. Broil wings 3-4 in. from heat until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Brush with sauce before serving. Serve with remaining sauce and, if desired, chives.
Test Kitchen Tips
  • If you like your wings not so saucy, place them in a single layer on a foil-lined sheet pan and broil 2 minutes on each side.
  • If using fresh peaches in place of canned, add a few tablespoons of brown sugar.
