Apricot BBQ Chicken Wings
from the Olde Town Spice Shoppe

3 lb chicken wings
1 cup bbq sauce
1 jar (18 oz) apricot preserves
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbl minced onion
1 tbl Tabasco Sauce (optional)

1. Start out by pre-baking the wings on a cookie sheet in the oven about 10 minutes. 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Then, place the wings in your slow-cooker.
2. In a bowl mix the preserves, bbq sauce, hot sauce, and spices. Pour over the wings.
3. Cover the slow-cooker and cook for approximately 5 hours. You can serve directly from the slow-cooker or transfer to a serving platter.

These are also great to do with chicken thighs or breasts as a main dish, served with rice.
Suggestions: Try adding 2 tbl soy sauce to the mixture for an Asian flair. You can also substitute the BBQ sauce for salsa, giving it a Mexican flair.
