It’s funny. I logged into read my husband’s Crockpot Asian Barbecue Wings post with intent to write about how much it has absolutely stunk to not be able to eat this. See Goose is a huge fan of sharing. She likes to share her toys, her food. I normally encourage this. However, she also shared Hand, Foot, Mouth with me. That was way too much sharing. I totally understand why she was miserable. My mouth has been a warzone that has made it impossible to eat even things like mashed potatoes and chicken soup. But these wings… we had bought the ingredients for them the day before I got hfm. They spent the day in the slow cooker making our house smell tantalizingly delicious. My poor tummy rumbled. I tried one when they were done. What a deliciously painful mistake.

Torture. It’s the best word to describe this past week. Jenna’s sickness made eating nearly impossible for her. Lucy has had more “down” days of little activity than she has ever before. And both Jenna and I are forced to open the fridge up each day and see these Asian Barbecue Wings staring back at us. They beg to be eaten. And though it would be torture for Jenna to eat them, she wants them.

So we wait. Each day she woke up still sick was another day we didn’t have the wings. Most nights, she struggled to get bland food past her aching mouth. But she was steadfast in her desire to have the wings one night. And so they wait.

Sure, I ate a few. After all, I had to taste test them to make sure they came out well. And I may have wanted them for lunch at work. But the bulk of them still wait.

Yes, I am restraining myself on Jenna’s behalf. Yes, really, with no need for threats from Jenna. After all, I can’t say that if I was chocking down a bland diet, I would enjoy seeing Jenna eat the product of a recipe that she inspired. See, Jenna likes variety in her wings more so than I do. You might remember that from the Grilled Buffalo Wings post a few weeks back. But I try not to argue with variety and ended up making a wing recipe that is different and specifically for her.

The irony is these Crockpot Asian Barbecue Wings are a delicious mistake. Jenna wanted much more simple, crockpot wings. (Spoiler Alert: That recipe is coming soon.) Don’t get me wrong, these are very easy to make. But they have a few more ingredients than what Jenna was thinking.

Still, I think you’ll agree if you try them that:

  1. They are delicious.
  2. They are easy to make.
  3. They are hard to resist.

Torture. Like I said.

    It's been a minute since I've made wings but I think these would go over really well with my family. Love any recipe with cumin. :)
  2. Amanda
    I'm so excited that it is just about crockpot season again!! This is the perfect fall recipe for football watching! Thanks for sharing!
  3. Erin
    This looks delicious! Perfect football watching food party!!! I love asian flavors and I'm totally digging that this recipe doesn't have sesame oil since our youngest is allergic.
    • jfletcher
      Definitely omit the sesame seeds then for your youngest. You won't be missing much in taste- I added them mainly as garnish :-)
  4. Melissa
    These wings sounds yummy yummy!!! I love anything I can make in the crockpot too so these will be made in our house for sure!! Thanks for sharing!
  5. Ashleigh
    These Asian chicken barbecue wings look so good and easy enough to make! I've never made a dish like this before but now I think I will! Thank you for sharing this great recipe!
  6. Angela Quisumbing
    These look amazing. I haven't done wings in the crockpot so I can't wait to try making these. I'll have to eat it without the seeds, but I know the hubby will devour them.
    • jfletcher
      The Sesame seeds just make them look a little prettier in my opinion. I don't think you'll miss out by not including them :-)
  7. Katie
    What do they mean by a coating of those spices on the wings? What are the amounts of each spice? "Coating" is too vague.
    • jfletcher
      Sorry Katie! I didn't catch that when I was reading the post. It was a teaspoon of each spice. Mix the spice together and toss the wings in them to lightly coat them. I hope that clarifies!

So, what do you think ?
