About Crock Pot Sticky Chicken Wings

When it comes to meat, there seems to be two camps of people:

Those who like meat cooked so tender that if you so much as give it a stern look it falls right off the bone OR those who want to reenact a scene from Quest for Fire with their dinner so that they can vigorously gnaw and chew in order to get their prize.

For me, my allegiance is firmly in the fall-off-the-bone camp.

I don’t want to fight for my meal; by the time the food is on my plate, the fighting should already be done.

If I go to pick up a rib or a drumstick and the bone clatters to the plate, I’m a happy camper.

But as for an old friend of mine?

I guess he’s still in tune with his hunting instinct, cause he wants to fight for this dinner.

The more chewy and tough the struggle then all the better for him.

So as you can probably imagine, I have a crucial decision every time I make a meat dish for dinner:

Is he going to be happy, or am I?

If you’re a crock pot enthusiast like me, I’m sure you already know how the story ends for The Night I Made Crock Pot Sticky Chicken Wings.

Crock Pots are notorious for making ultra tender meat, so – you guess it – this particular meal was a +1 for me.

I was in fall-off-the-bone heaven with this meal. And an old friend of mine, bless his heart, was a good sport about it and still ate everything on this plate.

As for how these chicken wings turned out?

The sauce is veryΒ easy to make (just whisk it and use it, no stovetop cooking needed) and has an Asian BBQ-style flavor. The wings cooked quickly, even on low heat (four hours). If you’re in a hurry, you can cook them on high for two hours, which makes them an easy dish to throw together even after you’ve come home for the day.

And, of course, the meat was tender and falling off the bone.

And since this was a +1 meal for me, I guess I’ll need to whip together some baked wings soon in order to balance out the dinner scales in my house. All I have to do is settle on a good baked wing flavor… Β decisions, decisions!

    I’m making this with pork ribs. Sauce sounds amazing.

    • Mindy Blas

    I’m all about that crockpot! I searched Crockpot Chicken wings in Pinterest and couldn’t pass up this recipe. Super excited to try this tonight.

    • πŸ˜€ Thanks Mindy. If you made them, I’d love to hear how they turned out!

    • Rita

    Can you put more than 15 in if you have a large crock pot and double the sauce

    • Hey Rita! Sure, that would work πŸ™‚ Nothing wrong with more sauce!

    • Heather @ The Nerdy Fox

    Yum! I’m saving this recipe for sure!

    • Citra Kale @Citra’s Home Diary

    My kind of finger licking foods ..YUM!

    • Matt @ Plating Pixels

    I just got a huge bag of frozen wings and am obsessed with my slow cooker. So yeah I kinda have to make this now. Thanks!

    • Sounds like a plan! If you make them, I’d love to hear how they turned out πŸ˜€

    • Dee Dee (My Midlife Kitchen)

    You had me at “crock pot”. This time of year in particular, my crock pot gets used multiple times per week. It’s my kitchen work horse. And that horse needs to get going on this delectable looking recipe! That glaze looks incredible!

    • Couldn’t agree more – this frosty weather is SO the crock pot’s native habitat πŸ˜€

    • Julie @ Texan New Yorker

    I’m drooling!! These look so amazing, I love that lacquer you get. I did a sticky crock pot chicken wings dish on my blog a couple years ago and it was one of my most trafficked for that year!

    • Thanks Julie! Sticky chicken wings are always a crowd favorite! πŸ˜€

    • Sara

    Wings are a favorite in my house, even the kids love them! And I love how low maintenance this recipe is, the slow cooker is so handy!

    • Laura @MotherWouldKnow

    I must admit that I’ve never made wings in the slow cooker. But your sauce sounds so good and the photos make it look so enticing – I just might try it. What a wonderful weeknight dinner. And yes, of course it’s fall-off-the-bone quality is what makes it so good in my book:)

    • Thanks Laura! If you make them, I’d love to hear how they turned out πŸ˜€

    • Alisa @ Go Dairy Free

    Oh my goodness, these looks amazing! We eat a lot of chicken wings in our home and I’ve still not tried them in the crockpot!

    • I’m clearly a little biased, but I think it’s totally worth trying at least once, especially if you like your chicken wings tender πŸ˜€

    • Brandon @ Kitchen Konfidence

    Wow, that glaze looks perfect! I’m pretty sure if I started eating these wings, I wouldn’t be able to stop until the pile was all gone πŸ™‚

    • Chrissa – Physical Kitchness

    YES! My hubby requests BWW all the time (but I’m not a fan). Plus why spend $50 there when I can make these beauties at home for a fraction of the price!!?

    • I know, right?! Homemade is so much better!

    • Leah

    This sounds so yummy! And, how easy! I love crockpot meals!

    • Amber

    I am such a huge fan of wings, and I’m an even bigger fan of using my crockpot. So it pretty much sounds like I’m winning if I make this recipe tonight. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

    • No problem at all! Thanks Amber! πŸ˜€

    • Liv

    I had no idea that you could make chicken wings in the crock pot. Pinning this so I can try it! Thank you!

    • Yaya

    I love wings so I am ALL over this recipe. I also love my crockpot but have never made wings in them but definitely want to try it soon. My only concern is that I might want the wings a little crispier after they are done cooking, so I might want to throw them in the oven for a few minutes

    • True, that would work πŸ˜€ The Crock pot does make the wings very soft and tender. I wonder if using less sauce would make a difference? Might have to try that the next time I make them. An old friend of mine is a crispy wing fan, too πŸ˜€

    • kristen

    SO i cannot lie, I’ve never made wings in a crock pot. but you just convinced me. And any recipe with sticky in the title is good with me! I love that you can just set the timer and let them cook!

    • Totally agree Kristen! That timer is a lifesaver πŸ˜€

    • Candy

    I bet these have so much flavor, burst in your mouth which each bite.

    • They really do Candy πŸ˜€ I already need to make them again.
