Since I didn't get to post a recipe last Friday, I thought I'd share a wing recipe I made yesterday for the Vikings game (too bad they lost! Maybe these are unlucky wings??). They were quite yummy and easy to make once you cut up the wing parts. The recipe is from Best-Loved Slow Cooker Recipes, which is a bargain bookstore crockpot cookbook.
Game Day Teriyaki Wings
3 pounds of chicken wings
1/2 an onion, coarsely chopped
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce (I used reduced sodium)
1/4 cup cooking Sherry
2 teaspoons dried ginger
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees on the broil setting.
2. Cut the chicken wings at the first joint to separate the parts. This is easier said than done, and the longest part of the process for me (besides the cooking, of course).
3. Place the wing parts in a broiler pan (not a cookie sheet, like I did....Thank god my husband was home to turn off the smoke alarm!). Broil 20 minutes; 10 minutes per side.
4. While the wings are cooking, combine the rest of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl to create the teriyaki sauce. Smell the yummy goodness.
5. When the wings are done, place them in the slow cooker and pour the sauce over them, making sure to reach every visible wing.
6. Put on the lid and set the dial to low (5-7 hours) or high (2-3 hours). Turn the wings half-way through to make sure all of them are coated with the teriyaki sauce.
7. Serve the wings out of your crockpot when they're done!
These got rave reviews last night at the game, although the audience wasn't particularly hard to please. :) At least something was a winner last night!
