Aside from the winter holidays, football season is our family’s favorite time of year. The atmosphere, the excitement, the competition, we love it all, but hands down our favorite part of football season is the food. We feast just about every game day weekend, whether our favorite team is playing or not. It’s just that serious. If we don’t cook (which is extremely rare), we are trying to find someone who is. When we entertain at home, Walmart is always our favorite place to go because we can pick up all of the food and supplies in one place. Our menu ALWAYS includes wings, and this year, the Walmart deli made my life so much easier.
I was able to just grab our wings there, already prepared, some Kraft Ranch dressing, and go home and eat! Well, not exactly, but buying delicious, fresh wings already made for me did allow me to spend more time on the rest of my menu and not feel so rushed trying to have my house ready for the game.
The deli offered boneless General Tso’s Wings and also traditional hot bone-in wings. We are suckers for General Tso’s anything so I knew we had to get those. The sweet and spicy Asian flavors of that chicken is SO GOOD! I got the hot bone-in wings also because whenever you are tailgating, or homegating its nice to have variety for your guests. I knew these two options would please everyone. They boys love their wings spicy, and the General Tso’s had a kick but they weren’t that hot so I knew my daughter and I would like those. The wings are available in the deli in a Pick 3 Bucket, a plated meal, or by the pound. So whether your crowd to please is large or small they’ve got you covered.
The boneless wings also gave me the chance to create another one of our favorite game day foods, sliders. They were way better though because I didn’t have to cook them. I picked up a few extra ingredients, whipped up a quick mayo when I got home and all I had to do was assemble them. It also made the chicken go farther because I used one boneless wing on each bun. You know people get happy with the wings when they come over and don’t think about the other people that have to eat. 😉 Or is that just at my house? Anyway, these sliders we great for that and the bread and slaw made them very filling!
General Tso’s Wings Sliders
Makes 12 Sliders
1.5 lbs Deli General Tso Boneless Wings
12 Slider Buns
1 bag of Asian Salad Mix (It looks like coleslaw mix, and can be found in the produce section.)
Garlic Lime Mayo
¼ c. Regular Mayonnaise
Juice of ½ Lime
1 tsp. Honey
½ tsp. Minced Garlic
1 tsp. Soy Sauce
½ tsp. Black Pepper
Salt, to taste
- Split the slider buns and place on a sheet pan. Butter the buns and place under the broiler for about 3-4 minutes or until golden and toasted. DO NOT walk away from the broiler, your bread WILL burn.
- In a small bowl mix the salad bag with the dressing that came in the bag.
- In another small bowl, mix all of the mayo ingredients until combined well. Spread on each bun top.
- Place one wing on each slider bun bottom. (I had maybe one or two small ones, but most of the wings were large enough to cover the bottom bun.
Top each slider with the slaw, and top with the other bun. Enjoy!
Would you try the General Tso’s wings, or are you a traditional hot kind of person?
