Instructions for cooking Crockpot DuckSauce Chicken Wings with potatoes

(Foreword: To clarify "potatoes" - i mean regular-potatoes plus sweet-potatoes.)

I own a round 4-qt crockpot from the 1970s (Japan-made), and
also own a very-shallow 12" fry pan w/identical frypan-as-its-cover.

I last attempted to make duck-sauce chicken wings in the fry-pan, but found it alot of work, and it only came out good by accident
....(BUT i was left with LOTS of extra mess to clean, which consisted of LOTS of "ducksauce-gravy" which is now in a container in my freezer. It was basically hit-or-miss, and i don't feel like enduring that again, due to ill-health, arthritis pain etc.

So i'd very much appreciate an EASY crockpot-recipe which just calls for a pack of wings, potatoes, sweet-potatoes, onion, duck-sauce, and perhaps oil on the bottom? You'd do me such a favor if you'd just point me to such a recipe, as i couldn't find any.

Most recipes which i find call for cookware i don't own, or exotic ingredients i don't have on hand.

I guess i can also try a 9x13 aluminum pan in the oven, as alternative to crockpot?
Whichever is easiest. Thanks!

here are a bunch of recipes based on a search for slow cooker chicken wings & potatoes (the two ingredients needing to be cooked through). Adjust as you like for the sauce.

Uh, thanks, though the issue is not resolved. It's so frustrating because lately i mostly see either youtube which takes forever to plow thru... or else pinterest (which you need to login to, otherwise there's blocking-popups for crying out loud).

And when i clicked the non-youtube, non-pinterest recipes, they were not advising a 4-qt. crock, nor basic sweetSour duckSauce. They were too complicated. One even called for using a broiler afterward, for heavens sake. That's totally unnecessary! I know there are still people who use basic simple recipes. Please, where are you? I just need a clearly-written BASIC recipe, per request.

How I miss the simple net of long ago, such as GardenWeb, where people could post LOOKING-FOR and its vintage members lived and breathed recipes. I just feel like crying bitter tears, not knowing where to turn for non-exotic help anymore.

Judy - I recognize your frustration; when I searched I couldn't find exactly what you wanted. That's why I suggested the basic cook-the-chicken-and-the-potatoes versions.
Sorry they weren't good enough.
Could you make one of those and add the duck sauce near the end to heat it up?

I think i'll just try rephrasing my question into a new question now. Thanks.
