Preheat a 7-litre (28-cup) slow cooker on HIGH.


Place wings, chilli sauce, ⅓ cup of the barbecue sauce, the oil and vinegar in slow cooker; mix well. Ensure wings are in an even layer. Cook, covered, for 1 hour 30 minutes. Carefully transfer wings to a large oven tray.


Preheat oven grill (broiler); grill wings until golden all over.


Meanwhile, remove flameproof insert of slow cooker (or transfer sauce to a saucepan) and place on the stovetop, or adjust slow cooker to ‘reduce’ (HIGH) setting. Simmer sauce, uncovered, for 7 minutes or until reduced slightly and thickened. Pour over grilled wings.


Cut cucumbers into quarters lengthways. Swirl remaining barbecue sauce through yoghurt.


Season wings; serve with yoghurt sauce and cucumber.

  • Chicken wing nibbles are prepared chicken wings separated at the joints, with the wingtips discarded. Use the same weight of whole chicken wings, if preferred.

    * PREP TIP:** Combine wings with sauces, oil and vinegar following instructions in step 2 the day before and refrigerate, covered. Transfer wings and marinade to a preheated slow cooker and continue with the recipe.
