Slow cooker buffalo ranch chicken wings
Cooktop Cove
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes
Serves: 4
2-lb (1kg) chicken wings
1 bottle (12-fl oz or 350 ml) of Red Hot Buffalo Sauce or other pepper sauce
1 1-oz packet (5 teaspoons) dry Ranch Seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of finely chopped chives to garnish
1.  Place the chicken wings into your 6-quart slow cooker and add the Buffalo Sauce, Ranch Seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir to coat thoroughly.
2.  Cook for 3 hours on low. 
For a real restaurant-quality finish, put the wings drizzled with sauce from the slow cooker into the broiler (at 300 degrees Fahrenheit) for 15-20 minutes or until they are crisp. Toss lightly to coat with the sauce which should have thickened while in the broiler. 
3.  Sprinkle the chives on top before serving.
Pro tip: All slow cookers are a bit different with different temperatures. Be careful not to overcook the chicken, or you will get a very grainy texture. Often people will attempt to thicken the sauce by cooking longer in the slow cooker, or on the high setting, but we found this to be a mistake.
