How do I get these wings crispy?

Don’t worry, making sprite chicken wings in the Crockpot doesn’t mean they’ll be soggy. They cook perfectly and stay tender and juicy thanks to the slow cooker and then we’ll finish them in the oven with the broiler!

The broiler adds a nice crispy texture on the outside and allows you to get that really good deep fried wing texture without the actual deep frying!

What do I need to make sprite chicken wings?

This recipe only uses three ingredients. That’s right, just three! You will need some frozen chicken wings, a can of sprite, and some BBQ sauce.

You can use whatever type of bbq sauce you like and of course you can use any type of lemon lime soda that you want as well. We are Sprite fans but you can use whichever variety you like or have on hand.
