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.

A pile of delicious Chicken Wings sprinkled with parsley.
Grab a napkin. These sweet chili wings are so good, but they do get your fingers messy.

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.

Call in the team.

What you need for these wings

Three ingredients.

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.

These wings look perfect. Coated in sweet chili sauce and ready for the game.
Who knew wings could be this good at home? I always thought they needed a massive deep fryer – wrong!

  1. I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that since it is not listed in the recipe the Siracha gets stirred in with the first two ingredients?
    All kidding aside, this sounds like a great recipe!

  2. Oh my gosh yes. These sound incredibly delicious. I’ve never made wings at home but with the ease of the slow cooker I may have to!
