Honey BBQ Slow Cooker Wings #Recipe

Johnny loves wings. LOVES wings! The hotter the better too. The problem is that other than me no one else in the family really cares for hot. With the super bowl coming around I knew I’d be making some but wanted to find a way to make some delicious wings that didn’t take a lot of time, weren’t hot, and tasted great.

I finally came up with the perfect recipe and the best part was I skipped the oven and used my crock pot. This time of year the crock pot is my best friend and I like to use it any way I can. I’m finally glad to have a wings recipe I can use in it and now I just need to find a hot wings version I can throw in my smaller one while these are cooking so every one is happy.

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

    I love making wings in the slow cooker. I usually put mine under the broiler for a few minutes, since I like mine more crispy. πŸ™‚

    • gina says

      hello how long to you put yours under the broiler? do you do it first or after?

  4. Oh YUM! Hubby would LOVE these! They look super easy too!

    This looks so good. I like the “10 shakes” measurement! Works for me!

    • Jennifer says

      LOL I don’t measure it so it’s the only way I really know how to measure it.

  9. That looks fantastic, Jennifer!!! So, so good!

  10. Yes please! These look so yummy and I bet my boys would just devour them!

  11. Hanan says

    Oh yum! We haven’t had wings in forever. Those prepackaged ones aren’t very good either, but these look easy enough to make!

    • Jennifer says

      We started making our own because we felt the same way!

  12. Fantastic recipe! I have not made slow cooker wings before. They look great

    Mmmmm, these look tasty. People at our annual picnic will love these. Thank you!

  14. oh hubby would love these!

  15. I have a total weakness for Worcestershire sauce. It’s always been a favorite of mine but I’ve never considered adding it to wings with BBQ sauce!

  16. my hubby would totally love these. I never cook wings because I hate deep frying stuff but this I could do.

    • Jennifer says

      Same here. Forget the health reasons, I just hate cleaning the surrounding area after. lol

      • LOL I don’t mind the mess, it’s the smell of deep frying chicken I can’t stand.

  17. We love wings. These sound delicous!

    I am such a sucker for wings and if I can throw them in the slow cooker, even better!

  19. That sounds delicious! I pinned this, I am definitely going to try it!

  20. robyn says

    These look so good. I bet even my picky eater would go for them.

  21. Erin says

    I am confused by your cooking times… Is it suppose to say: High for 4 hours, and Low for 8 hours?

    • Jennifer says

      These are cooked in a crockpot, most only have 2 settings- low & high.

  22. These look delicious! Wings are one of my special treats!

    that looks so good,I could make this for the hubby,he would love it,,I don’t care for wings,not enough meat on them for me

  24. Cynthia R says

    looks really good, we love wings. I usually make a variety that has soy sauce, this would make a nice change.

  25. Amanda says

    Are the temp and time mixed up
    4 hour on low
    8 hours on high???

    I’m doing these for dinner tomorrow but don’t want to over cook then

    • Jennifer says

      Ack! Yes, Sorry! Fixed! Thanks for the catch!

  26. susana says

  28. Shannon says

  29. Birdiebee says

    These chicken wings look so good and what an easy recipe. I think my family is going to love these.

  30. Ryan says

    trying this RIGHT NOW I used honey BBQ wings from gordons and except 4lbs and almost a whole 40 oz of honey BBQ sauce I can not wait 130

  31. Lavon says

    Can I use frozen party wings?

  32. Annette says

    This look so good and easy, but one of my biggest problems is that I tend to overcook in the slow cooker. As a result, my wings don’t look like the picture, because they’re falling apart. While they taste fine, they don’t make a great presentation.

  33. Lacie Baughman says

    What size crockpot? Do you thaw your wings first? Thanks

    • Jennifer says

      These were fresh wings in a 7 qt crockpot.

  34. Natalie Brown says

    Such a great idea to make them in a slow cooker. I didn’t even know you could do that. These look and sound delicious! “Pinned” πŸ™‚

  35. Sierra says

    Did you use big chicken wings or winglets?

    • Jennifer says

      I have made these many times any I have done both.

  36. Michael Lambert says

    These sound and look really good. I will show this to my wife to see if she would make it πŸ™‚

  37. Tanisha says
