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.

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.

Slow Cooker Chicken Wings Recipe - General Tso Style
Recipe type: Chicken Wings, Crock Pot, Slow Cooker
  • 2 - 2½ lbs. chicken wings, or preferably flats and drumettes
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 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
  1. Salt chicken wings (flats and drumettes) with kosher salt and place in the bottom of a large crock pot. Set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour mixture into crock pot.
  4. Cover and cook for approximately 2½ hours, or until thoroughly cooked. Turn wings occasionally to fully incorporate the sauce over all the chicken pieces.
  5. Turn broiler on. While it is heating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper (for easy cleanup).
  6. Place wings on the prepared baking sheet and broil until crispy, approximately 5 minutes. I like to turn mine and crisp the other side also.
  7. Remove from broiler and immediately sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    I’m trying to use my multi-pot and slow cookers more. There are so many great recipes for them. These sound delicious. I’m a big fan of Chinese food but take-out can get very costly.
