Alright, everyone. We’ve officially made it half way through the week. Phew! It was touch-and-go there for a moment.
And what better way to celebrate than a mouth full of slow cooker buffalo chicken wings?
I can’t think of one!
Can we talk about this buffalo sauce for a minute? It has a really nice kick of spice, like buffalo sauce tends to have. But the honey really evens out that flavor. So there’s a bit of sweet and spicy going on here, which is really the key when it comes to really good wings.
Here’s the thing about the consistency of this sauce. It can vary, depending on how much juice your chicken releases while it’s cooking. Or the type (brand) of buffalo sauce you use. If yours comes out too thin, it’s a really easy thing to fix. Just put it in a saucepan, and cook it over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, or until it begins to cook down and thicken. That’s it! Super easy, and you’ll get a nice thick sauce.
Let me just say, I am completely aware that “buffalo” is spelled wrong on the slow cooker below.
We are currently working to identify the culprit, and will take steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
Or not. Whatever. It’s kind of cute.
