Do wings in the slow cooker get crispy?

If you are unsure about making wings in the Crockpot because of the texture, you’ll be happy to see that we finish all of our wing recipes in the oven. It helps to give the outer shell a little char, and crispiness.

These wings don’t get hard like a deep fried wing, if that’s what you are after you’ll want to cook the wings without sauce, cook them in the oven to broil them and make them crispy, and then add the sauce after the fact.

I like that making honey garlic chicken wings in the Crockpot makes them a bit healthier. Wings are not the most healthy food so when we do make them I like to know that I can lighten them up a bit!
