I love chicken wings. Usually I make them in the slow cooker with a sauce like my SCD Honey Lime Chicken Wings. However, I had salt & pepper wings recently and I loved them! Who says you need sauce. These are simple, but full of flavor with a crispy skin and tender chicken.
If you’re not up to a marinade, or just want some variety, these wings are perfect for you. They take almost no time to prepare and are a great appetizer or main dish!
Give it a try and be sure to let me know what you think.
