  • 4 large turkey wings
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken or turkey broth
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Prep the Turkey Wings:
  • Rinse the turkey wings under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels. Season them generously with salt and pepper.
  1. Brown the Turkey Wings:
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey wings and brown them on all sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer the browned wings to the slow cooker.
  1. Prepare the Gravy:
  • In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and garlic. Cook until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the onions and garlic, stirring to combine. Cook for another minute to cook out the raw flour taste.
  • Gradually whisk in the chicken or turkey broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  • Stir in the water, Worcestershire sauce, dried thyme, dried sage, and paprika. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the gravy has thickened, about 3-4 minutes.
  1. Combine and Cook:
  • Pour the gravy over the turkey wings in the slow cooker, making sure they are evenly coated.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, or until the turkey wings are tender and cooked through.
  1. Serve:
  • Once cooked, transfer the turkey wings to a serving platter. Spoon the gravy over the top and garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
  • Serve the smothered turkey wings with your favorite side dishes, such as mashed potatoes, rice, or steamed vegetables.


  • For extra flavor, you can add sliced mushrooms or bell peppers to the gravy mixture.
  • If you prefer a thicker gravy, you can mix a little cornstarch with water and stir it into the gravy during the last 30 minutes of cooking.

Slow cooker smothered turkey wings are a classic comfort food dish that is made easy with the convenience of a slow cooker. Tender turkey wings are simmered in a rich and flavorful gravy until they are fall-off-the-bone tender. This dish is perfect for a cozy family dinner or for entertaining guests, and the leftovers are just as delicious the next day.
