Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
A friend of mine had been raving about a crock pot wing recipe on facebook the other day so much so that I knew I had to try it.
Instead of wings, I used drumsticks and took the skin off before making the recipe. This was the first time I've ever taken the skin off of anything - I typically go the easy route and buy things skinless. I bit the bullet this time and while it wasn't difficult to do, it did gross me out a little bit.
The recipe was easy enough and I had everything except for the Dijon mustard. My friend also added a tablespoon of ground ginger to the mix and since she liked it so much, I added it as well.
- 5 lbs chicken wings
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup Dijon mustard
- 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- Remove the tips from the chicken wings; separate the wings at the joint.
- Place them in a crock pot.
- Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken.
- Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
You could cook this on high for three hours if you are crunched for time. I cooked mine on low and after it was done, I took the lid off and let the sauce thicken up. You could also take the lid off during the last hour of cooking.
I served the drumsticks with some french fries. I have been craving them for quite some time now!
The drumsticks were deliciously sweet and the chicken was literally falling off of the bone - no knife needed! The husband hardly said a word during dinner because he liked them that much. It was certainly a hit in our house!
The little guy wasn't a fan, so he had some fake chicken nuggets from Morningstar Farms. He loves those things!
After dinner, the little guy once again asked if he could watch a Mickey Mouse movie. This is now his favorite thing to wear when he watches Mickey Mouse:
