This is such a great way to use up chicken legs and wings. We get our chicken's whole from a farm, so whenever I need breast meat, off come the legs and wings too! I use this recipe when I need to just throw something quick in a pot and run! My husband and his buddy came home from the gym last night and devoured the whole pot! I guess it was good. I didn't get any! :(
- 10 chicken pieces (legs or wings)
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce or 1⁄2 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1 pinch ginger
- Wash chicken and take skin off or leave on chicken pieces (your preference) and place in crock pot.
- Stir together remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
I didn't have any hot sauce or ginger so I just made it with the soy sauce & sugar, and WOW, even my picky kids LOVED it!!! They were BEGGING for seconds! Great recipe!!
Made this for dinner tonight and we quite enjoyed it. I loved the flavour combination of the spicy, salty and sweet and that little bit of ginger adds a really nice warm flavour. The only thing I would change next time would be to change the sugar to brown sugar and to reduce the quantity of sugar - it was just a bit too sweet for our tastes. Easy to follow recipe, and really easy recipe which was needed after a mad week. Thanks, Sarah - made for ZWT!
This chicken was pretty good, and I didn't think it was overly salty. But I'm not too fond of crock pot chicken. I cooked mine on high for about an hour and a half and then on low for about three hours. Maybe this is why my chicken came out kind of dry. I will definintely try this again, but next time I think I will bake it in the oven.
