The Super Bowl is this Sunday! I’m not a particularly huge football fan, but I do enjoy watching games with my husband. I also like all the food that goes along with watching the Super Bowl. It’s a fun time to make a spread of yummy snacks and spend time together.
Chicken wings are a classic game day food. With the skin on and frying them, these are typically not the healthiest snack. This recipe skips the frying to lower the fat content. If you put the wings on a rack during the broiling, some of the fat will also drain off. Top with whatever sauce you like. I used buffalo sauce for a traditional approach. This recipe is just a general guideline, so there won’t be any nutrition analysis this time. Enjoy!
Buffalo Chicken Wings
Chicken Wings – with the joint separated
Ranch or Bleu Cheese Dressing
1. Place chicken wings in slow cooker with ½ a cup of sauce. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, until tender.
2. Heat broiler to hi. Line a baking sheet with foil. If possible, place metal rack on top of foil.
3. Carefully put wings on prepared baking sheet. Lightly coat each wing with sauce. Broil on high for 2-4 minutes, just until outside is crisping. You can turn partway through if needed to crisp all the sides.
4. Serve with additional sauce, celery, and dressing.
Recipe notes: You could use whatever sauce you like. The slow cooker makes the wings very tender and juicy. By cooking them in the sauce, the flavor is in the meat already, so you don’t need to coat them with as much sauce later.
