Wings are a favorite in my house but with 6 mouths to feed it can be a real pain to make enough for everyone. When I discovered the cooking method I used for my Spicy Mango Wings I was absolutely overjoyed at how easy it is to get tender on the inside, crisp on the outside wings at home without even frying them!!! So I wanted to try out a different flavor combination to make sure it wasn’t just a one-hit-wonder and made these Spicy Soy Wings – let me tell you – these wings are going in the hall of fame!
The slow cooker and broiling combination method is so simple and produces some of the best wings I have ever had. You get so much flavor infused into the wings in the slow cooker, so that it’s not just the outside sauce. But then you get that great glazed effect with you put them under the broiler. It’s almost like magic or something.
The sauce was so good from this recipe that I also used it to glaze some ginger meatballs I was serving along with them. The meatballs were beef, fresh ginger, soy sauce, scallions (finely chopped), and panko crumbs. I baked them for 15 minutes in a 400deg oven and then brushed them with the sauce and put them back in while the wings broiled. Really tasty!
I made a sort of Spicy Rice Bowl out of this whole thing by serving some ginger rice, and an Asian Slaw along with Wings and Meatballs. It was a real good meal and there was not a speck of anything leftover!
