Thai Chicken Wings with Peanut Sauce


24 chicken wing drumettes (about 2-1/4 pounds)
1/2 cup bottled salsa
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup no-calorie, heat-stable, granular sugar substitute (Splenda)
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons water
2 cloves garlic, minced


1.Place chicken in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Combine salsa, the 2 tablespoons peanut butter, the lime juice, the 2 teaspoons soy sauce, and the ginger. Pour over chicken wings. Toss to coat.

2.Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.

3.Meanwhile, for the peanut sauce, in a small saucepan use a whisk to combine sugar substitute, the 1/4 cup peanut butter, the 3 tablespoons soy sauce, the water, and garlic. Heat over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth, whisking occasionally; set aside (mixture will thicken as it cools).

4.Drain chicken, discard cooking liquid. Return chicken to slow cooker. Gently stir in peanut sauce. Keep warm on low-heat setting for up to 2 hours. Makes 12 servings (2 pieces per serving).
