We like to change it up but I like it if it’s easy and still full of flavour. so it was time to make some slow cooker chicken wings, General Tso style.
Serve with veggies, rice, noodles or whatever sides you want
I love to have my slow cooker chicken wings (or any wings for that matter) with veggies, usually raw ones but sometimes cooked or better yet with a salad. However both my hubby and daughter like to have rice and veggies with their wings. That’s one of the great things about chicken it’s so versatile and you can serve it with whatever sides you want.
Now onto the recipe!
- 2 - 2½ lbs. chicken wings, or preferably flats and drumettes

- ¼ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 tsp. ground ginger
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- kosher salt
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- Sesame seeds
- Salt chicken wings (flats and drumettes) with kosher salt and place in the bottom of a large crock pot. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ground ginger, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and a pinch more salt if desired. Stir in cornstarch until well combined.
- Pour mixture into crock pot.

- Turn broiler on. While it is heating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper (for easy cleanup).
