I created this crockpot chicken wing recipe in preparation of a BBQ we were having. I anticipated there’d be lots of cooking going on, so a set-it-and-forget-it recipe like this is perfect for BBQ season!
I don’t make chicken wings very often since I’m just generally not a fan (oh, the horror!). I swear I’m not an alien. I just don’t like eating messy foods or spicy foods, so that usually knocks chicken wings off of my love list. But for the taste of this recipe, I’ll take the mess!
This soy sesame chicken wing recipe does have a bit of spice to it. It’s just enough of a kick to let you feel the heat, but not so overwhelming where it sets your mouth on fire.
If you want to make this recipe, here’s what you’ll need.
- 3 lbs of Chicken Wings
- 1/2 of 14.oz container Soy Sesame Sauce (from Target)
- 1/2 of a 14.oz container Budweiser Mild & Tangy Wing Sauce
- 1/2 tablespoon Worsterchier sauce
- A few shakes of “Perfect Seasoning” (or Adobo)
- 2 pinches of Oregano
- A few shakes Sea salt
- A sprinkle of Pepper
- 1 tbsp. minced garlic
Since I know many of you will have issues finding the “perfect seasoning” (seriously, that’s what it’s called), Adobo will do just fine if you can’t find this. Both seasonings are found in the ethnic/hispanic food aisle and are very inexpensive.
1. Sprinkle dry seasonings evenly over the wings, then transfer them to the crockpot.
2. Add the Worcestershire sauce, soy sesame sauce, wing sauce and garlic. Stir the wings and sauce mixture around so each wing is evenly covered on both sides and there’s a bit of sauce on the bottom of the crockpot. Cover, and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165F.
3. Transfer wings into a casserole dish, spooning a bit of the sauce in the crockpot over the wings and broil for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the wings start to brown a bit. Check constantly, since broiling can quickly go from nice and golden brown to I-just-burned-dinner.
Serve with foods that are typically on a BBQ table like potato salad, corn on the cob, or macaroni salad.
Or, you can go a little more classic like I did and serve with roasted potatoes and a side salad.
I’d love to hear if you try this crockpot chicken wing recipe! We liked it so much we bottled up the leftover sauce to use in future recipes.
