A few weeks ago I made buffalo wings for Shane. While I enjoy buffalo wings (as long as they’re not too hot), I also really love anything teriyaki. So, when I saw this recipe for chicken wings in teriyaki sauce that was Weight Watchers friendly, I had to make it. This recipe really couldn’t be any easier. It utilizes the crock pot so you just throw the wings in the crock pot, mix up the sauce, pour it over the wings and you’re done. About 5 hours later we had delicious chicken! Our wings were so tender that the meat was falling off of the bone. I thought they had great flavor…sweet, but not too sweet. When I went grocery shopping this week I grabbed more wings just so I could make this again soon!
Chicken Wings in Teriyaki Sauce
3 pounds chicken wings — about 16 wings
1 large onion – chopped
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup dry sherry — or chicken broth
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 tbsp honey
2 cloves garlic – minced
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut off and discard wing tips. Cut each wing at joint to make two sections. Place wing parts on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat 20 minutes, 10 minutes a side or until chicken is a light, golden brown. Transfer chicken to Crock-Pot Slow Cooker.
Mix together onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, cooking sherry (or chicken broth), ginger, honey, and garlic in bowl. Pour over chicken wings. Cover and cook on Low 5 to 6 hours or on High 2 to 3 hours. Stir chicken wings once to ensure wings are evenly coated with sauce. Serve.
