5-INGREDIENT SLOW COOKER HONEY-DIJON WINGS

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • ¾ cup dijon mustard
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Fresh rosemary
  • S&P to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add chicken wings to slow cooker.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix together dijon mustard, honey, and red wine vinegar. Pour over chicken.
  3. Top with fresh rosemary.
  4. Cook HIGH 2-3 hours.
  5. Optional steps: Broil chicken in oven before or after cooking for crisp skin. Blend sauce ingredients in food processor instead of hand mixing.

DETAIL INSTRUCTIONS

First I broiled the wings in the oven until the skin was a little crisp prior to adding them to the slow cooker. Most people broil after. My wings are usually so tender when they’re done cooking that they fall apart when I go to take them out the slow cooker. If you broil them before, they’ll hold a little better. If you’re going to do this, don’t broil them too long. Just 3-5 minutes or so on each side. You don’t want to flat-out cook the wings.

Second, I blended all the sauce ingredients in the food processor before pouring it over the chicken wings. Normally I just whisk the sauce but the dijon I used this time had really big mustard seeds. Too big in my opinion hence the food processor. Again, these two steps are purely optional.

This cooks in a quick 2 hours on HIGH. This recipe is a great appetizer or game-day snack. You can swap out chicken wings for chicken breast (bone-in, boneless, skin-on or skinless), thighs and even pork chops or tenderloin.
