Chicken Wings in Teriyaki Sauce Crock Pot Recipe – 2 Point Value


photo credit: mhaithaca

I have always been a big fan of wings — buffalo wings, BBQ wings, teriyaki wings — I am an equal opportunity wing eater. Bit when I learned the nutritional value of most wings, I pretty much figured that I could never again enjoy that chicken wing yuminess without totally destroying my Weight Watchers Diet Plan. When I found this awesome crock pot recipe — a delicious Teriyaki Wings recipe for just 2 Weight Watchers Points, I was beyond excited. I HIGHLY recommend giving this tasty chicken wing recipe a try. Because it’s cooked in the slow cooker for so long, the meat REALLY soaks up the sauce and becomes so moist and tender and full of flavor. These teriyaki wings are better than most of the wings I’ve had a restaurants!! And yet, they are low in Weight Watchers Points, and are one of the best low calorie recipes for wings that I’ve ever found!

  1. I tried these for the first time a few nights ago. I was looking for slow cooker recipes because I never really done a lot of slow cooking. They were the best wings I ever made. I can’t believe how tender they were and how much flavor they had.

    They will be a regular at our house Thanks so much for taking the time to build this website can’t wait to try the buffalo wings.

    I was skeptical about this one. Only because I have a traditional Buffalo wing lover and wasn’t sure about eating a wing cooked any other way than fried. But wow! My wife and I made these yesterday and they were way better than I thought. I’d definitely do these babies again!

  3. I made these last night…the wings literally fell apart they were so tender and the flavor was all soaked into the meat…we just picked the bones out and put the meat and sauce over a rice noodle and veggie stirfry I had made as a side…it was WONDERFUL! My teenage sons asked “Why don’t you always cook like this?” I’d say everyone was pretty impressed.

  4. I made this tonight and they were AMAZING!!!!! I will most defiantly make this over and over again! The only thing i did differently was instead of putting them in the crock pot I placed them in the oven on 250 degrees for about 35 minutes because of time and they were still very tasty!

  5. I put this recipe in the online Weight Watcher's recipe builder and it came out to be 8 points!! What gives?

    • Ugh…that Weight Watchers Recipe Builder can be pretty finicky. I NEVER use it, because, depending on the brand of each ingredient, the Points can really vary. When making this WW wings recipe yourself, the best way to get the most accurate Points Value is just to total up all the nutritional stats on your own.

    • The serving size is 2 wings (for 2 pts). So for example, if you ate 8 wings, it would 8 pts (1 pt per wing)

  6. I made these tonight. My family LOVED them. They had no idea it was a healthy recipe! Far better than any sauce you can buy at the store. Definately will make again.

  7. Forgive me if I missed it, but what is the serving size on these wings?

  8. hi — i bought wings at my local grocery….serving size is 112 grams, caloreis 170, fat 11 grams…i had 20 wings when I got done cutting, and the total package was 2.79 lbs. calculated these wings with skin at 4.7 points for 2 wings… they are 'regular-sized' – I originally got 11 servings when i calculated but backed it to 10 considering that I cut off the wing tips…also, after broiling there was a decent amount of fat left behind on the sheet…

    • ooops sorry. I hit “Dislike” by accident. I thought it was the button to push to read more of what you said as your sentence ended in “…”

  9. This is the most FANTASTIC crock pot recipe I have ever made! I recommend adding a few dried chiles to the sauce while cooking for a little kick of spice. The whole family couldn't get enough of these. I served over brown rice and broccoli. It was similar to General Tso's, but better and I didn't feel horrible about eating it afterwards!

  10. Lori C. says:

    Is there any way you can give me the nutritional info from the Trader Joe's wings so I can compare it with a brand like, say, Tyson to see what the difference is?

    • Hi Lori,

      I don't have any chicken wings in the freezer right now, but the next time I get some, I'd be happy to post the nutritional info!

  11. Anyway to tell how many calories per wing you are getting, I am making this for supper and I need to know :( Also I used reg soy sauce because I didn't have low salt.

    • Sorry, but I don't know the exact calories for this recipe. In all Weight Watchers Recipes, they list only their Points value…not the calories.

  12. You could absolutely do this with chicken breast, though keep in mind, it would end up being very little meat. With wings, so much of the chicken is bone, so you actually end up eating very little chicken and skin. If you used chicken breast, you'll have to weight the meat and calculate the Points total based on that. The sauce really accounts for about .7 Points per serving. BUT, I do have a super yummy buffalo chicken strip recipe that will rock your chicken strip lovin' world…so check back tomorrow to get it!

  13. How about doing this receipe with chicken breast?

  14. Thanks for your input and keen observance, Cindy! I based this recipe on a bag of wings I bought at Trader Joe's, and according to the listed nutritional information, it did correctly add up to 2 Points. It really just depends on the type of wings you get. I think it's mostly because the wings are small, and most of the Points content covers the skin. Hope that helps!

  15. If your leaving the skin on these wings, I believe it would have to be way over 2 points a serving.
