I was out at lunch with a friend the other day and he ordered buffalo wings – it occurred to me that these are naturally low carb anyway, so I helped myself to one. Or two. And although you could probably use any old buffalo wings recipe, I didn’t see why I shouldn’t add it here – just to remind you of this tasty chicken dish!
I’ve made chicken wings in the slow cooker before (with amazing Asian flavors!) but I have refined that technique a little – because they really do need broiling afterwards to crisp up the skin. So here’s how to do it.
Prep the wings. I use some sharp kitchen shears to cut off (and discard) the tips. Then bend the remaining wing in the opposite direction to expose the joint, and cut along that area to divide the two parts.
In a saucepan, mix together hot sauce, butter, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce.
Add the wings to a slow cooker (I have a little 3 quart one which is perfect for 2lb wings) then pour the sauce over the top – all but about two tablespoons of it. Reserve that for later!
Cook on high for 3 hours, or high for 2 hours and low for another 2 hours. Either way, they’ll be super tender and moist and almost falling off the bone.
Place them onto a baking sheet lined with foil or a silicone mat, skin side up. Spoon the reserved sauce over each wing.
Broil for 2-3 minutes until the skin is crispy.
Serve with ranch or sour cream, if you like. Whether this is a one portion dish or you want to share it – well, that’s up to you!Low carb buffalo wings in the slow cooker! #lowcarb #buffalowings Click To Tweet
