These delicious, tender Teriyaki Wings will be making our menu.
Living at the border of New England and New York, it was a huge deal when the New England Patriots took on the New York Jets in the playoffs. It was an even bigger deal when the underdog New York Jets toppled the Patriots.
I mean huge
Everyone was talking about it on Monday morning in the coffee shop (well, that and our impending storm – our fourth in four weeks). It’s like that year when my beloved Oakland Raiders went to the Super Bowl …
By the time you read this, we’ll all know which teams will ultimately be playing in Arlington, Texas, this year. And if I was a sports reporter, I would be writing about that in this space. But I’m not -- and this is about food. As in the food you will want to serve at your game day party.
When I was a kid, my family and I went to an uber-fun big game bash every year. I’d make a banner for the team I was rooting for (somehow that always ended up being the underdog … and they always lost – it became a huge joke of the annual party not to root for whoever I did).
As much as I remember the games and the cheering and the hoping that my underdog pick might eek out a win, I also remember the food. It was delicious comfort food – lasagna, wings, salads and the like. My family usually contributed to the beer supply and perhaps a dessert.
If that party was still being held, these Teriyaki Wings
would be a fabulous contribution. Not only are they super easy to make, they only have four ingredients. And since they are cooked in a slow-cooker, they are relatively hands-off. How awesome is that?
A word to the wise on making these: it’s important that you turn on the slow cooker before you start whisking the ingredients together. The addition of a little heat will prevent the honey from hardening on the whisk, making the whole whisking process easier.
