Crock Pot Sriracha Honey Wings are so tender the meat falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. The caramelized sweet and spicy sauce is truly enough to make your taste buds sing! Made in the slow cooker you won't find an easier recipe! They just about cook themselves. That makes these an excellent recipe for every day.
After the incredible response on our Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Wings we decided to transform our favorite baked sriracha honey wings into a crockpot recipe that will knock your socks off.
I don't think it could get much simpler or tastier. Sriracha hot chile sauce, honey, and lime juice slow cook with your chicken drumettes to create the ultimate sauce that is tangy, sweet and spicy and has a hint of citrus.
You are going to love 'em!
With love from our kitchen table to yours.

Chipotle's Famous Barbacoa is the Mexican barbecue of my dreams. Seared beef is slow cooked in a spectacular spicy adobo sauce and combination of flavors that create the perfect moist and tender Mexican shredded beef.
Easy Crockpot Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings
SERVES 6 | ACTIVE TIME 15 Min | TOTAL TIME 3 Hours 15 Minutes
3/4 cup sriracha sauce (the one with the rooster on the package)
3/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
juice of one lime (about 1/4 cup)
In a 5 quart slow cooker on low add sriracha sauce, butter, honey and lime juice. Stir to combine. Add chicken wings. Stir until wings are well coated. Cook on high for 2-3 hours (or low 4-6 hours) until wings are cooked through.
Transfer the sauce to a saucepan over medium-high heat and boil it until it reduces to a thicker sauce, approximately 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove wings from slow cooker and place on a baking sheet lined with foil. Drizzle sriracha honey sauce over wings.
Set oven to broil. Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 2-3 minutes until the sauce starts to caramelize. Remove from oven. Coat wings with sauce again, broil for 1 minute, remove from oven. Coat with sauce, broil 1 minute. Add more sauce, broil until sauce is caramelized.
Remove from oven, serve and enjoy.
DONNA'S NOTES: You can use fresh wings. Cook time would be 3-4 hours on low or 1 to 2 hours on high. Additionally, when using fresh your sauce will cook quicker. Approximately 3-5 minutes.
Instead of cooking the sauce down and broiling it you can mix up 2 tablespoons corn starch and 2 tablespoons water in a resealable container and shake it really well. Pour slurry into crockpot then cook an additional 30 minutes on high.
