Do you want a mouth watering, aromatic punch in the face Asian themed meal? These Slow Cooker Asian Lettuce Cups and Thai Chicken wings are for you.
Where I love my slow cooker with a passion that sometimes is a little peculiar in a public setting, sometimes I'm reminded that like all things, it can let you down from time to time. See, slow cooking is all about flavors and sometimes a recipe can just fall flat if the components aren't there the way they need to be. Sadly, that's how this recipe started. I wanted a mouth watering, aromatic punch in the face with these Asian themed meal. Something that would have me salivating. But when I actually got to into the kitchen and starting tossing it together, I started to suspect the recipe just wasn't bringing it's a-game. And that is simply unacceptable in the PtS kitchen. So I changed things up. Cuz sometime's that just what you have to do.

PS! Go give big congratulations to Danielle and her new tiny sous chef!!!
Oh my goodness, both of these dishes look great! I love how you added edamame to the lettuce wrap mix. They are so great to throw in at the last minute to add a little more green. Also, I never thought to make wings in the slow cooker. Will definitely be making this meal sometime soon
The chicken legs look delicious! I've never had chicken legs in Thailand, is it common there and I just didnt come across or is it your own creation?
Also, love the look of your website 🙂
