1" piece of ginger, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup sriracha sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup (60mL) soy sauce

1. Place the chicken wings into the bottom of a well-greased slow cooker. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the ginger, garlic sriracha, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame seeds and black pepper. Pour over the top of the chicken wings and toss until the wings are well coated in the sauce
