Let’s talk about wings here for a bit, because who doesn’t LOVE chicken wings?!?

Seems like everyone I know loves wings in some way shape or form. Because wings are awesome and tasty? Well, yes. But also for the reason that they are fun to eat, too.

First of all, I’m not a “meat on the bone” guy – or used to be anyway – but it seems like I’ll always pick a huge plate of wings over some other appetizer.

Because again, wings are spectacular.

There’s just something about them – game nights, parties, barbecues, wings go with any event. And because they are the ultimate party food, they go perfectly with an ice cold beer.

Slow cooking these wings is just an easy way to do it, as a result – you have more time to do what you need to do.

And let me take a guess, you probably DO have more things to do than just hang around and cook chicken wings. Because life is busy AF.

But certainly, if you’ve got time to cook you can do these wings in the oven almost as easily.

One reason these the slow cooker is awesome for this recipe is that you start off with frozen wings. Yes, you can dump frozen chicken wings right in the crock pot!

This is something new to me, we’ve always bought fresh wings never the frozen ones. But I tried a slow cooker wing recipe recently and saw that you can just put the frozen wings right in your slow cooker.

Amazing. You learn something new everyday! So rather than defrosting the wings for the oven you’re already saving some steps here…

But finally, let’s talk about the sauce on these guys for a minute here. Just a three ingredient sauce recipe – honey, sweet chili sauce and soy sauce. That’s all folks – it couldn’t be easier.

Another reason to completely love this wing recipe.

When these wings come out of the slow cooker you’re going to brush the sauce all over them and then pop them under the broiler to crisp them up.

Take them out – slather the sauce all over them again and serve. You can pop them under the broiler again if you want for just a minute or two or just serve them saucy.

Doing the wings this way is going to give you the best results. Crispy, tender fall off the bone, sticky wings.

Get ready to bring on the beer and the napkins for these wings…and make sure you make double the amount you think you’re going to need because they are going to be gone in seconds!

    Hello. My broiler is temporarily out but I would love to make this for the game Sunday. Can i skip that step or bake for a few minutes after I spread sauce on wings? Any tips would be great. Thank you😊
