  • Category: Chicken Wings, Crock Pot, Slow Cooker



  • 22 1/2 lbs. chicken wings, or preferably flats and drumettes
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 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 2 1/2 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.
  8. Serve with your favorite sides or appetizers.
