You’ll find that making wings in the crockpot is kind of addicting. I’ve shared a few different varieties, try Sprite Chicken Wings, Crockpot Buffalo Wings, Crockpot Lemon Pepper Wings, and Garlic Parmesan CrockPot Chicken Wings too!

They are just so simple to make and they come out perfectly tender, falling off the bone juicy, so it makes going out for takeout wings unnecessary.

If you’ve never made wings in your slow cooker you will be surprised by how juicy and flavorful the end result is, it’s amazing. The Crockpot does all the hard work for you!

Pour the BBQ sauce over the chicken wings. Stir to coat. Cover; cook on Low heat setting for 3 hours.

Set the oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with foil. Using a slotted spoon or fork, place the chicken on the pan. Broil the tops of chicken 3 inches from heat 3 to 4 minutes or until browned, turning halfway through broiling time. Serve with remaining sauce for dipping.

Do I have to brown these wings?

You could skip the oven if you want, I love to put the wings into the wing to give them a little crisp and to help caramelize the sauce a bit. It makes them extra indulgent and helps make the sauce extra sticky and delicious.

Of course you can skip this step, it’s not really about cooking the wings, it just helps with the texture and the finished sauce flavor!
