Honey Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1 tbsp Butter, melted

  • In a small mixing bowl, add rub ingredients and stir to combine.

  • Set oven to broil.
  • Pour sauce from the slow cooker into a saucepan.
  • Add 2 Tbsp cornstarch and 2 Tbsp of water to a small bowl and whisk to combine well, then pour into sauce and whisk.
  • Cook over MED-HIGH heat until boiling, then reduce heat to LOW and whisk as it simmers. Simmer for 5-8 minutes, or until thickened to desired consistency. 
  • Brush wings with sauce, then broil in the oven for 3 minutes, until the sauce caramelizes a little.  Brush with more glaze and broil another 2 minutes. Repeat one more time.
