Easy Crockpot Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings


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.

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.  Tangy, spicy, sweet and  a hint of citrus.

You are going to love 'em!

With love from our kitchen table to yours.

Easy Crockpot Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings
4 pounds chicken wing drumettes, frozen
3/4 cup sriracha sauce (Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili 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 srirachasauce, butter, honey and lime juice.  Stir to combine.  Add chicken wings.  Stir until wings are well coated.  Cook on low 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Remove wings from slow cooker and place on a baking sheet lined with foil.  Drizzle sauce from slow cooker 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, serve and enjoy.

COOK’S NOTE:  If you like a thick sauce coating, transfer the sauce to a saucepan and boil it until it cooks down, approximately 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Then brush or drizzle the sauce over the wings.

You can also layer the sauce on the wings.  Coat wings with sauce, broil for 1 minute, remove from oven.  Coat with sauce, broil 1 minute.  Add more sauce, broil until sauce is caramelized.

  2. Hi there, I'm planning on making these wings this weekend. I bought a pack of unfrozen naked chicken wings and am wondering how long you recommend to cook them in the crock pot since they aren't frozen. Please advise; thank you!

  3. I have made the wings a couple times now and the husband devours them. I find them to be incredibly tasty too. I was in the mood for them one day and didn't have wings so I threw it all together in the crockpot with some chicken breasts, shredded them up, caramelized it a bit under the broiler and it made awesome sandwiches.

  4. how long do you cook these if the wings aren't frozen?

  5. I usually don't take the time to comment on recipes but.... I just made this tonight using chicken legs and served with coconut/lime rice. Omg....loved it! This recipe will definitely be a regular in my home. Thank you! :)

  6. I made the crock pot Sriracha Honey Wings last night. While they did have a good flavor, I found that using frozen wings created a ton of water in my crockpot, so much so that the sauce would not thicken at all when transferred to a saucepan to boil down. Therefore I was unable to get the caramelized effect as the picture shows. I will use thawed wings when I try this recipe again.

  7. The siracha was too much. Maybe reduce it a little. Had to add more honey to keep my mouth under scorching lol
