3 lbs chicken wings
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup dry cooking sherry, optional
Sesame seeds for sprinkling, if desired
Rinse chicken, pat dry, and cut off and discard the tips. Cut wings at the joint to make 2 pieces.
Place wings on broiler pan and broil about 4-inches from the heat for about 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.
Transfer wings to crockpot or slow cooker.
In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over the wings in the cooker.
Place lid on cooker and cook on low 5 to 6 hours or on high around 3 hours. Stir about halfway through cooking time to ensure the wings are all coated with the sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if using, before serving.
