A crockpot is this girls best friend. It doesn’t matter the time of year, nothing quite beats the ease of cooking with minimal effort. Since I’m focused on easy entertaining this month while enjoying the college basketball championships, it seems that it’s only fair I utilize my crockpot.
I went to Ohio State, and a game day staple among many of my friends was chicken wings. They are delicious and a fun party food. And, they are wickedly easy to make. A little bit of effort and in a few hours you have deliciously messy homemade chicken wings. Word of advice : you’ll need wet wipes for your guests if you make these!
The best thing about these wings is they can be made in under 3 hours, or under 2 hours if you’re in a hurry. The trick is embellishing a sauce you already love, and kicking the crockpot up to high if you want to speed things a long – don’t worry – your chicken will still be cooked.
Easy BBQ Crockpot Wings
3 pounds chicken wings, prepped (wing tips removed)
1 ½ cups of your favorite barbecue sauce (I like Stubbs)
¼ cup clover honey
3 tsp spicy brown mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Preheat the broiler. Line a sheet with foil and place the wing pieces on a single layer. Broil for about 20 minutes, turning over once.
Place wings in a crockpot and cover with your sauce. Cook for 3 hours on low, or if you’re in a hurry about 1 ½ hours on high. Your wings will be very tender, so you’ll want to remove them carefully with tongs when they’re done cooking.
Serve with crudités and an amazingly simple blue cheese dip.
Miss a play or stats while prepping your wings? No problem. Grab your XFINITY remote and press the C button – in seconds you’ll have the SportsApp at your fingertips and you’ll be caught up to speed.
Power User Tip: now that nearly everything in the X1 Sports App has “Extras,” when you have the X1 Sports App open and a game selected on the right side of the screen, just press the “info” key on your X1 remote and you’ll get the current stats for that game.
Now that you know how to make amazing chicken wings, hummus and a delicious cocktail, I think it’s time for you to have yourself a party to watch the final games of the college basketball championships!
I figure you’re pretty familiar with the XFINITY SportsApp now too, so tell me, what’s your favorite feature?
