All you need is a slow cooker, chicken wings and some flavor from the pantry or fridge

  5. All of your photos are wonderful and relaxing just to gaze at, I need to find Island time. Your chicken recipe is perfect, I was thinking of a Teriyaki chicken yesterday. I like the idea of orange marmalade, I have it, but dont like on toast, so this would be perfect.

    Enjoy your Island Time!!
