One of my favorite Christmas gifts this past year was my slow cooker (thanks, Mom!). I don’t use it as much as I should, but I love having it on hand nonetheless.
I made Pineapple & Mango Sweet Heat Chicken Wings last night — well, I actually started a day in advance. I threw together the wing sauce on Monday night and put it in the fridge overnight to let the flavors blend a little more. The wings and wing sauce went into the slow cooker yesterday afternoon and cooked on low for about five hours.
I rounded out the wings and dipping sauce with some lettuce, tomato, and boiled egg that I had on hand, as well as carrot sticks and butternut squash fries. Next time I’ll take more effort to remove the moisture from the fries. I like mine a little crispier.
The meal was so-so. Not the best Paleo dinner I’ve had so far, but it was still good. My biggest complaint with the wings was that I would have preferred them to be spicier. Plus, I’m just not a fan of having to tear my meat off bones. That’s a little too primal for me. Haha.
I’ll have leftovers tonight, which means no cooking tonight for me!
