A few weeks ago when I had a party, someone brought over some baked chicken wings and little G ate like six of them. He ate all the chicken skin (his favorite) and the meat, and spat out the bones in one nice whole piece.
I was so impressed by his newly acquired skills, meaning his ability to eat bone-in chicken just like a grown-up now. I guess he has mastered his fine motor skills in the eating department!!

Since he likes wings now, I thought about making him an easy dinner with chicken wings.
He loves the combination of honey (he always asks for plain honey in a bowl and he would dip his fingers and “eat” the honey dry!), soy sauce, sesame seeds and thus I decided to make him this easy peasy slow cooker honey sesame chicken wings.
I got myself some organic jidori wings (jidori means free range in Japanese). The jidori wings are small or shall I say regular-sized, a clear sign that they are not hormone fed chicken.
The prep took 10 minutes of my time. I put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and set the heat level to high.
Three and a half hours later, I had the most amazing, fall-off-the-bone and absolutely delicious honey sesame chicken wings.
My boy devoured the wings during dinner. I packed the leftover for his lunch box at school. This is an amazin recipe for busy moms who don’t have a lot of time to cook. Bon appetit!
