Slow Cooker Asian Style Wings from @NevrEnoughThyme

Ready for the next installment of Progressive Eats? I sure am! It’s time again for our group to put on its monthly virtual dinner with everything from soup to dessert. Modeled after the ever popular progressive dinner, we each choose a course based around a theme and present the complete menu on the last Tuesday of the month.

This month’s theme is Weekend Ski Party and is hosted by Susan Pridmore who blogs at The Wimpy Vegetarian. As I was considering what to make for our ski party, I realized that I had never actually been skiing much less to a ski party. What in the world would I serve? Hmm. In chatting with Barb, the founder of Progressive Eats, about my dilemma, she suggested that I imagine a heavy snow in Georgia and what I would feed family and friends after a day playing in the the cold and snow. Easy, I said! Chili and chicken wings. Yeah, I’m so sophisticated. Anyway, I also thought that if the family were all outside playing, I’d want to be out there with them and not in the kitchen. And the best kitchen helper for that situation is a trusty slow cooker, right?

Since I already have a great Baked Buffalo Wings recipe on the blog, I thought I’d take these in a little different direction and give them an Asian flair. Soy sauce, honey, Sriracha, ginger…yum. All you do is broil the wings for a few minutes, mix up the sauce, and dump it all in the slow cooker. Easy, easy. The broiling of the wings, by the way, helps the skin keep a nice texture during the long, slow cooking.

I think I’d enjoy these Slow Cooker Asian Style Wings at the end of a long day in the snow, wouldn’t you?

Preheat the broiler on its highest setting.

Arrange wing pieces on baking sheet for Slow Cooker Asian Style Wings

Arrange the wing pieces on a baking sheet. Drizzle liberally with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Broil on the top oven rack for 10 minutes. Turn wings over and broil for an additional 10 minutes on the second side.

Prep sauce for Slow Cooker Asian Style Wings

While wings are broiling, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except garnish. Stir until well combined.

Add wings and sauce to slow cooker

Place the wing pieces in a slow cooker and pour over the sauce. Cook for 4-5 hours on low heat. Gently stir occasionally to distribute the sauce throughout the wings.

Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.

Enjoy!

Progressive Eats

Welcome to Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a progressive dinner party. This month’s theme is Weekend Ski Party and is hosted by Susan Pridmore who blogs at The Wimpy Vegetarian. Don’t consider yourself snowed in…consider it a party!

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.

We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.

Join Us for a Weekend Ski Party!

A few months back, a good friend emailed me and said that she’d ordered a cookbook that turned out to be not quite her style and she wondered if I might want it? It was called Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food. Oh yes! I certainly did want it! I’d been looking at it on Amazon and […]

Whew, y’all. I’m tired. I have shopped until I nearly dropped. Cooked until the pantry’s nearly empty. And decorated until I used all the ribbon in my “Christmas” closet. The one thing I haven’t done, though, is make new recipes for the blog. As a matter of fact, I’m taking a rare and very much […]
