I meant to take pictures of all my ingredients and what I did step-by-step, but since Ava was at my feet during prep time and I had to keep an eye on her too, it just didn’t happen. But because they were so good I had to share this recipe that I found on Pinterest. Mine didn’t come out as beautifully glazed looking as the original, but I didn’t want to go through all the steps to get them to that level (we were starving by that point). I brushed them twice with the sauce before broiling them instead. And since they came out of the slow cooker the meat literally fell off the bone. I was worried they’d be off the charts spicy because of all the Sriracha, but the honey balanced them well. My husband was all over them and I made Ava something separate because of the spice, but I swear this girl has a radar for chicken wings. So I ended up carefully pulling pieces off with as little sauce as possible and she was ate it up!
Easy Crockpot Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings (from The Slow Roasted Italian)
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.
