Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

Do you ever have those days where you’re just so busy and can’t spend a lot of time on dinner? I usually break my Crockpot out on those days. It’s so easy to just drop a few ingredients in there and continue about your day. I love the way my meats come out so tender and soft. On those days, my family usually thinks I have slaved over a hot stove. Little do they know, I just found a smoked chicken quarters recipe and added my own little twist to it. It’s that simple.

Ever since I was introduced to Zevia and made those amazing Strawberry Cupcakes, I have been trying to use Zevia in everything! Their Ginger Root Beer is one of my absolute favorites and you would never know that it was free of syrups, sugar and calories.

I used to make my wings with regular root beer, but between the sugar in that and the BBQ sauce, it was a bit of an overload. So, I decided to give it a go with the Zevia and I was pleasantly surprised. Phil usually prefers his wings on the grill, but he was definitely impressed with these. The meat stayed juicy and fell right off the bone. Yumm!!!

I might even make them again for dinner tonight!
