Expert Tips

I like cooking the chicken wings in a regular pot for 15 minutes, then discarding that water to remove a little of the chicken’s natural fat. Then I place them in the slow cooker right away.

Ever since I can remember, this delicious recipe was and continues to be a must in my home. We couldn’t possibly watch a soccer game or another sporting event on TV without enjoying my Aunt Carmenza’s famous chicken wings with malta, a very typical Latino nonalcoholic ale. As a family, we eagerly waited for the event to begin so we could start our delicious task: eating nonstop. These wings are meant to be eaten by hand, literally licking your fingers along the way. It’s a mystery why, but we thought they tasted better like this than if we ate them with a fork and knife like civilized people. My family is quite unique, isn’t it? Now this dish is one of my husband’s favorites. The only difference with how I make it now is that I use the slow cooker. The sauce turns out thicker, and although it takes a little longer, it’s much smoother and delicious. I hope you like them! “A touch of seasoning, a lot of creativity and tons of love”

You can add 2 tablespoons of plain tomato paste to make the sauce a little thicker.

This recipe can be served with french fries, fried cassava, tostones (fried green plantains), and white rice. And a very cold drink makes them even better.

Directions

  • 1 Wet chicken wings with water and sprinkle with brown sugar. Place chicken wings in the slow cooker. Stir in the rest of the sugar, onion, garlic and two cups of non-alcoholic ale.
  • 2 Stir well. Add 3 tablespoons cornstarch and salt; stir again. Add salt to taste.
  • 3 Set the slow cooker on high for 3 hours and 20 minutes.
