Frugal Tip & Menu Plan Monday: Crock Pot Hot Wings

One of the reasons I used to spend so much money at restaurants is that I was not a good cook. So if wanted something tasty we had to go out to get it!  Thanks to my Mother-in-Law I learned how to cook. Though I still find myself going out to eat if a specific craving hits. In order to curtail this I try to add foods to our menu that we all crave as a result I have become a pretty good Mexican & Chinese food cook!  Well, my budget is too tight for such indulgences to spend $40 to feed cravings! The most recent craving is for Hot Wings!  So in order to avoid  the wings places I ended up making these two recipes and they at the end. (They are both crock pot recipes because our oven is broken, we are saving up to fix it or buy a new one. )

Sunday: Last week of Rosemary and white bean soup
Monday: Toscana Soup with bread
Tuesday: Chicken Spaghetti
Wednesday: Beans Rice & Corn bread
Thursday - Chicken strips, waffle Fry & Broccoli (Faux Chick-fil-a)
Friday - Hamburger, French fries and tossed salad
Saturday - Left overs

1st wing recipe was not any good so I deleted!

Chicken Wings Recipe

Place a large nonstick skillet with butter. When the butter melts, fry the chicken wings ’til golden. Transfer to a crock pot.Combine the sugar, soy sauce and mustard in a small bowl. Stir ’til smooth. Heat it using same skillet used for frying chicken.Simmer for approximately 5 minutes. Pour this over the chicken. Mix well. Cover with lid. Set heat to low. Cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.

This recipe was outstanding! Give it a try we give it a double yummy!
