A new crock-pot delight! No matter what new dishes I create and blog about, my crock-pot dishes are always among the most viewed by my readers. I guess I’m not the only one who loves the simplicity and ease of a crock-pot ;-).
When I was doing my weekly grocery shop, I noticed just how inexpensive turkey wings are. I have purchased them before, not in a while, but never compared their prices to chicken cutlets or ground beef. I bought a package of 2 huge turkey wings for $5.58! Everything else I needed was already in my cabinets or fridge…dinner = done! I usually use white rice in my crock-pot dinners, but this time I mixed white rice with basmati, and used my left over Farmer’s Market basil and I must say..YUM!
1 cup white rice
1 cup basmati rice
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 package turkey wings
1 tablespoon parsley
2 sprigs fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 tablespoon onion soup mix
* Enough water to submerge but not fully cover the turkey
Yields: 5, 1 cup servings of rice and 2 portions of protein.
- Spray crock-pot dish with cooking spray.
- Add rices then pour tomato sauce on top.
- Lay turkey wings on top of sauce.
- Add parsley, and basil, followed by all of the spices listed, except for the onion soup mix.
- Pour cold water into crock-pot, around the edges of the turkey so as not to wash away spices.
- Sprinkle onion soup mix on top, cover and cook on high for 6 1/2 hours. Turn pot to warm until ready to serve.
I usually serve a soup or salad with dinner, but this is more than enough to fill you up! My son loved the turkey so much that he ate half of my wing! I will definitely be making this again, and will of course share any additions with you all.
