Combine the ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar and chili garlic sauce in a small bowl; set aside.
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the sesame oil, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir-fry for a few seconds, just until fragrant, then add the cabbage and red bell pepper. Continue to stir-fry for one to two minutes until the cabbage begins to wilt, then add the soy sauce mixture. Cover and cook over high heat for one minute until just wilted.
Remove lid, add green onions and stir-fry for another 30 seconds. Remove from the heat. The cabbage should be tender, but still have a slight crunch.

Kool factoid: The term “coleslaw” is derived from the Dutch word “koolsla,” literally translated as “cabbage salad.” The term has evolved to refer to many types of crunchy, shredded-vegetable salads that hold up well after being dressed.

Using a sharp knife, cut through the 2 wing joints; discard wing tips. Sprinkle chicken with a dash of salt and pepper. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat until golden brown, 6-8 minutes on each side. Transfer to a greased 5-qt. slow cooker.
Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, liquid smoke, if desired, and remaining salt; pour over wings. Toss to coat.
Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender, 2-3 hours. If desired, top with jalapenos, onion and sesame seeds to serve. Freeze option: Freeze cooled fully cooked wings in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Reheat wings in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan in a preheated 325° oven until heated through, covering if necessary to prevent browning. Serve as directed.
