What to do when you don’t have time to cook (Slow Cooker Wings Recipe!)

Imagine this…

You’re driving home from work or picking the kids up from school. You are all super hungry and ready to eat as soon as you get home. But you have NOTHING prepared…and have no idea what to make for dinner.

Then you remember how easy it would be to click on Door Dash and have them deliver dinner. But you hate that idea, because homemade food is so much healthier…and you especially don’t want your kids eating the processed ingredients and refined oils found in restaurant food.

But wait…You don’t need to imagine this happening to you, because you’re probably living it!

If only you had an easier way to get a homemade dinner on the table when you’re short on time.

To give you a taste, one of my family’s favorite slow cooker recipes are these Sesame Dijon Chicken Wings!

These wings are perfect to throw together on a busy weekday. It takes only a few minutes to whisk up the sauce and throw it all in a slow cooker. My kids go CRAZY for the tangy sauce on these wings. The hot sauce is optional if you want to make them less spicy and more kid-friendly, they taste fabulous either way! I like to serve these with rice and steamed vegetables. I’m sure they’ll be in regular rotation at your house in no time flat!
