2 Tbsp. Cornstarch

2 Tbsp. Cold Water

1/4 c. Fresh Basil, finely shredded

Preheat broiler. If desired, use a sharp knife to carefully cut off tips of the wings. Discard tips and cut each wing at joint to make 2 pieces. Place wing pieces in a single layer on the unheated rack of a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is brown, turning once; drain off fat. Meanwhile, in a 3-1/2 quart slow cooker, combine coconut milk, fish sauce and curry paste. Add wing pieces and onion, stirring to coat with curry mixture. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. Remove chicken from cooker; cover with foil to keep warm. Skim fat from curry mixture. For sauce, in a medium saucepan, combine cornstarch and water. Stir in curry mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in basil, if desired. Serve chicken wings with sauce.
