Given that the temperatures have dropped to below zero status and the layer of snow is getting thicker by the day I’m starting to have dreams of a warm and tropical paradise. But since school is back in session and life must go on it’s not going to be possible to escape anytime soon. I’m doing my best to create as much tropical paradise in my kitchen as I can. If I close my eyes while I’m tasting these Slow Cooker Beer Glazed Honey Lime Chicken Wings I can almost (almost!) hear the ocean waves! 😉
I love these wings because you can easily eat them as finger food at your Super Bowl party. They are not messy at all! But yet still juicy and full of flavor. I do recommend one step for these wings that I usually try to avoid with my recipes but in the case it’s totally worth it. When the wings are done you should place them on a foil lined broiling pan and put them under the broiler for 3-5 minutes. Then they will have a perfect crust….that little bit of crunch you want when biting into wings. Super easy and super easy clean up since you used foil!
On another note — if you like casserole recipes you should check out this website. You know I love casseroles and have blogged about several I have made. Well, one of them, my Slow Cooker Denver Omelet Casserole, was recently featured by their site! Make sure you check it out! Stay warm (unless you are smarter than me and already live somewhere warm! Then stay cool!) !!
