Sticky Drumsticks -- Super Bowl

I receive weekly emails from America's Test Kitchen.  Each email contains links to video's, product reviews, helpful hints and recipes.  The slow-Cooker Sticky Wings recipe jumped out at me in a recent email. However, I hate wings.  Too much effort and too little meat just so unsatisfying.  Slow cookers are OK, but I prefer my pressure cooker.  I morphed this recipe to our taste.

At dinner I was told I should have doubled the recipe that there was not enough and next time make additional sauce for dipping.  The chicken was perfectly moist, love that pressure cooker!
