I love to have my slow cooker chicken wings (or any wings for that matter) with veggies, usually raw ones but sometimes cooked or better yet with a salad. However both my hubby and daughter like to have rice and veggies with their wings. That's one of the great things about chicken it's so versatile and you can serve it with whatever sides you want.

Slow Cooker Chicken Wings Recipe - General Tso Style

Make our Slow Cooker Chicken Wings. They are a great way to make a messy food easy to prepare for your family! Easy to make but oh so yummy.


  • 2 - 2 ½ lbs. chicken wings, or preferably flats and drumettes
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Salt chicken wings (flats and drumettes) with kosher salt and place in the bottom of a large crock pot. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ground ginger, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and a pinch more salt if desired. Stir in cornstarch until well combined.
  3. Pour mixture into crock pot.
  4. Cover and cook for approximately 2 ½ hours on high, or until thoroughly cooked. Turn wings occasionally to fully incorporate the sauce over all the chicken pieces.
  5. Turn broiler on (most ovens the broiler option temp is 500 to 550) we did these at 500 but keep an eye on the wings as all ovens are different. While it is heating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper (for easy cleanup).
  6. Place wings on the prepared baking sheet and broil until crispy, approximately 5 minutes. I like to turn mine and crisp the other side also.
  7. Remove from broiler and immediately sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  8. Serve with your favorite sides or appetizers.
