An easy crock pot chicken wings recipe that gives you tender, juicy wings with a crispy skin on the outside.


  • 34 pounds of fresh – not frozen – chicken wings and drummettes
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 cups hot sauce (we use Frank’s)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbps. red pepper flakes


  1. Add the fresh (or thawed) chicken wings and drummettes to the crock pot and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour the sauce over the wings, then add the red pepper flakes, and stick of butter.
  3. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours – stirring a few times as they cook.
  4. When finished cooking, remove from oven and place onto a baking sheet. Pour about 1 – 1 1/2 cups of the sauce from the crock pot over the wings on the baking sheet.
  5. Place into the oven under the broiler and broil for 10 minutes – checking every 3-4 minutes and using a basting brush, basting the wings every time with the sauce from the pan.
  6. Once the wings have reached 165 degrees F. internal temperature, and the skin is crispy with the sauce looking ‘charred’ just a bit, remove from oven and serve immediately.


  • Serve wings with your choice of garnishment – fresh carrots, celery, and a dipping sauce of choice.
  • If your oven does not have a broil setting you can simply bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or until the wings crisp up a bit.
  • If you’re using frozen wings, be sure to fully thaw before cooking.
