Crock pots are great for cooking a wide variety of vegetables and meats, but when you’re cooking with chicken you’re not restricted to just one, you can get your fix of all three.
That’s because chicken wings are actually a pretty versatile dish.
They can be used as a filling for tacos, stuffed into tacos, or served as a main dish on their own.
The chicken wings that we are about to share with you are one of the best chicken wings we’ve ever had, and we couldn’t be happier to share them with you.
We love these chicken wings, so let’s get started!
First, let’s prep the chicken.
If you want to make chicken wings in advance, you’ll need:1 lb ground chicken 1 tbsp olive oil1 tbsp lemon juice1 onion, chopped1 garlic clove, minced1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro1 cup shredded cheddar cheese1 tbsp fresh thyme1 tbsp garlic powder1/2 tsp salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste1 cup vegetable broth2 tbsp water1 tbsp cumin, chili powder, paprika, cayenne, and a little salt to taste.2.
In a large pot, heat up the oil and add the chicken and onion.
Cook for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and the onions are starting to soften.
Add the garlic, lemon juice, and onion and cook for another minute.
Add a little water if needed to reduce the amount of oil, and then add the chopped cilantro, shredded cilantro and shredded cheese.
Cover the pot with a lid and cook on low for about an hour, or up to 1 hour.
Once the chicken has finished cooking, remove the lid, drain, and stir in the broth and water.
The liquid should be bubbling away, and if not, stir in a little more broth.3.
Add in the cheddar and the thyme, and cook over medium heat for another 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
Add some cilantro if you like, and add in the shredded curds and a squeeze of lime juice.
Add that to the pot and stir to combine.
Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
If the chicken still looks a little wet, add in some broth to bring the liquid down to about 2 cups.
Add another 2 cups of broth if the sauce is too thick.
Add salt and pepper to your taste.
Serve immediately with a side of rice, and let the sauce sit for about 20 minutes.
This is what the end result looks like:4.
To make the chicken wings taste good, add the cilantro a little at a time to help the onions and garlic flavor the chicken, and make sure you add the thymes and cilantro as well.
If they taste dry, add a little oil and cook them for another few minutes to make them more flavorful.5.
Once your chicken wings have finished cooking for a few hours, remove them from the heat and shred them with a fork, or if you want a softer version, use a knife.
To serve, drizzle with the cumin-scented olive oil, sprinkle with salt and black pepper, and top with rice and cheese.
