Best Slow Cooker Wings You Need to Make Tonight

If your kitchen has been graced by the presence of a slow cooker, then there’s really nothing you cannot make. Seriously! These things are amazing for at-home cooks, and they make meals super simple and easy to prep when you’re really busy.

When I got my crock pot, I knew that I had made it. It is the ultimate kitchen accessory, and it meant that I was finally ready to put my prep skills to the test. I had always watched my mother cook with the crock pot, and my only job was to make sure I turned it on halfway through the day. By the time she got home from work, there was a mouth-watering smell leaking from the sides of the slow cooker. In no time, we were serving up casseroles, pork tenderloins, pastas and anything else under the sun and it seemed like it took no time at all.69puntitled

I wanted to make something ahead of time that would heat up while I worked, and that would be ready as soon as the game was on. Thankfully, this little beauty took care of everything; all I did was make the sauce!
