With the big game just around the corner, we are already preparing our best recipes for game day snacks!
I tend to think of my slow cooker for days I will be gone, or for soups in the winter. But slow are good for so many things! They are a real time saver and work-saver, especially on a busy day!
Recently I was craving wings, but I didn’t want to buy the pre-made ones. And, I have tried so many wing recipes that didn’t turn out the way I like, that I’m wary of homemade wings. So, I decided to invent my own easy recipe. I had some wings in the refrigerator, so I pulled them out and put these together pretty fast. They are real easy to put together, and we loved them!
First, I cut the wing sections apart, discarding the wing tips. Then I placed them all into my crockpot, and dumped in about 3/4 a bottle of BBQ sauce. Turn it on high for 3-4 hours, and no peaking! (Lifting the lid allows heat to escape, and can add 30 minutes to an hour to your cooking time.) After the wings are done, place them in a single layer on a baking sheet, and brushed the remaining BBQ sauce over them. Place them about 6 inches under the broiler, and broil on high for 5 minutes, to caramelize the sauce.
These are sticky and delicious!

This sounds and looks good. Think I will try it with regular cut up chicken parts. I love using my crockpot.

Trying these tonight for the super bowl. This might be a dumb question but my crock pot has 4 and 6 hours under high and 8 and 10 hours under low. Recipe states cook 3-4 hours on low. So I’m figuring I can put it on 8 hours and just set a timer for 3-4 hours.
