Is it possible to make chicken wings in a slow cooker and not have them turn out gummy and gross? Can we still get that crisp skin and perfect bite? You bet we can! And this recipe is a perfect one for just that! Pop these babies in the slow cooker and let it do the work while you draft that football league.
Rumor has it people like to nibble on some savory bites while watching the game. Chances are if you have found yourself here, you are indeed one of those people or looking for (and maybe also feed them). You’re always looking to use that slow cooker for game food, but wings? Maybe not your first thought.
Well guess what, these sweet chili chicken wings are some of my favorite game-day snacking. All sorts of slow cooker simple, and once you make them you may never run out to the local yellow buffalo joint again. Change up the flavors and spice to keep your guests on their toes. But these sweet chili wings should stay in the rotation. They are kinda sorta that good.

What you need for these wings
Three. Yep. You read that right. Well, ok, besides the wings. You need those too or the whole point is mute.
But really, all you need is soy, honey, sriracha. It’s a magical combo that flavors these wings and stays locked in when you pop them under the broiler to crisp up that perfect skin.
