This sticky-spicy-sweet deliciousness is sponsored by my friends over at Persil®! I’m a messy cook, and they keep me nice and clean!
These sticky slow cooker chicken wings are bursting with Asian flavor! You’d never know they’re a healthier, paleo and whole30 compliant appetizer!
Some days, you just have to wing it.
OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS. I have been waiting to say that FOREVER.
Orrrr, at least since the creation of these glorious, messy, sticky and spicy-sweet chicken wings. It feels so good to finally get the lame pun off my chest! Aaaand exhale.
Okay now that we’ve got all of that outta the way, let’s get onto the finger-lickin’ honey garlic chicken goodness that is ready to be shoveled into your hungry mouths on that upcoming day where there is, like, an ULTRA-important game going on.
You know it well. You also know that a viewing partay is not at all compl-EAT (so much lame puns today) without some chicken wings. Just like the quarterback is the star of the game (is that even a true fact? I just made that up RIGHT NOW) these wings are going to be the star of your shin-dig. Let me just tell you why this statement is TRUF:
- Slow cooker. Remember that reader survey that you took 2 weeks ago? Ya’ll basically yelled THROUGH THE SCREEN, that you wanted more recipes in the slow cooker. So, ummm, here you go.
- Finger food <– HELLO not having to risk poking someone’s eye out when you jump off the couch because someone made a touchdown (is that the right lingo?) and you go all crazy, flailing your fork around.
- Whole30 stamp of APPROVAL. On chicken wings. And YOUUUU thought that your mouth would have to be devoid of all things sticky, sweet and totally NUM during your 30 day adventure into the land of REAL and WHOLE food.
My peeps. These wings. This SAUCE. This sticky, fruity, sweet sauce that is balanced by that perfect burst of heat when you bite into each juicy, tender wings….AND THEN you get hit with that Asian-food-familiarity of ginger and garlic. Is it wrong that I am sort of just dreaming of sticking my head into the slow cooker and slurping my way out?
Don’t answer that.
You and I need to have a real life, honest chat though. Mostly about the acceptable ways to eat chicken wings, because there really is only one: MESSY.
I want NO part of a world that includes chicken wings where the sauce doesn’t stick to my fingers, drip down my hands and SOMEHOW end up on my forehead after I eat a few of them. I KNOW that YOU feel this way too.
Which is why you are going to BE SO excited when I talk to you about my newest, non-food-related-but-still-related find: Persil® ProClean 2in1!
You’re all like “Yo Taylor, you’re a food blog. Why are you talking to us about laundry detergent?” You know my answer that that?
I am a M-E-S-S. Seriously. Mr. FFF always wonders how my photoshoots end up looking LIKE THIS when I finish them:
Food gets thrown everywhere. Sauces get spilled. The linens I’m using as props get DIRTY. I’ve ruined a few. I’ve even ruined some clothes in the process. It’s basically just chaos x 12.
Now, think of the above photo (which was taken when 1 PERSON was just styling some chicken wings) and then add 20 other, crazy, jumping, cheering, people to it. Like, all the people at the party I know you’re going to throw when you eat these chicken wings.
Real talk: Some person is going to get SO wrapped up in the game that they’re going to wipe their sticky little fingers all over your nice tablecloth. Then someone is going to knock over the sauce. Probably right onto YOUR pants. It’s just part of LIFE.
But, have no fear my party-planning peeps because Persil® ProClean 2in1, umm, WORKS. It’s saved my linens…my clothes…basssically my whole LIFE.
In light of this discovery, you may go forth and eat wings. The only messy thing that you need to worry about is your face.
And how ridiculous it looks being covered with sticky, sauce GOODNESS.
Don’t worry. You’re doing it right.
