Easy Meals for Single Guys – Smothered Turkey Wings

Where are my hardworking single men at?

What’s up fellas! I want to let you know your work ethic and sacrifice doesn’t go unnoticed. We appreciate your dedication, drive and commitment to the task at hand!

I wanted to remind you of that before I drop this delicious recipe on you. It would be nice to have a meal hot and ready for you when you get home I’m sure. For many of us that’s just not a reality!

I know most days I get home late and he last thing I want to do is spend hours in the kitchen. I can tell you right now small appliances are going to be your best friends.

This morning before leaving for work …well first let me say… I typically try to food prep on Sunday.

Soooo… last night I cleaned and seasoned my turkey wings and let them sit overnight. Before leaving for work. I set the crock-pot to low temp added 1.5 cups of chicken broth, my marinated turkey wings, fresh garlic and a yellow onion (sliced not chopped).

Now you can head to work knowing you at least have some turkey wings to eat when you get off work. You can have a turkey sandwich at best.

If you like complete meals like me. You can probably muscle up another 30 to 45 minutes of energy to whip up some quick sides. I like to have it with gravy over jasmine rice and some sort of green like kale or collard greens.

Smothered Turkey Wings over Jasmine Rice!

  • 1 pack of turkey wings or 3 to 4 pounds.

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic

Slow- Cooker bed of Veggies:

  • Bell Pepper
  • 1 Lemon
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • 3 tbsps butter
  • 1/2 cup pot stock (leftover juices from crockpot)
  • 3.5 cups chicken broth/stock
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1-2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Onion powder

Cooking directions

Clean and dry turkey wings. Coat in a light layer of olive oil, season and place wings in refrigerator over night. Prep veggies/herbs for cooking. The next morning before heading out to work place them into your slow cooker. Remove wings from refrigerator and arrange them in an even layer on top. Cover and let them cook nice and slow while you’re at work. After work remove them from crockpot and save the pot-stock for gravy.

Make the gravy by adding butter and the pot stock to a sauce pot. Add all purpose flour and whisk to combine. Cook for 3-4 minutes and then add chicken stock. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Add heavy cream and mix to combine. Darken the gravy to your preference with the Browning and Worcestershire sauce. Once gravy is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, season to taste and pour oven turkey wings.
