While chicken wings were never a staple in my family, I do enjoy them! There’s something so… I don’t know… almost patriotic feeling about them? That might be because I relate them to the big barbecue holidays like 4th of July, Memorial Day, and Labor Day.
One of my dearest friends in the world is always making chicken wings. He has a smoker, and it will be the dead of winter. “Hey, how’s it going?” “Good… making wings!” “…IN DECEMBER?!” “Yeah! I got that smoker.” He also has a covered patio which helps a lot. Sigh. I’m so envious, haha.
If you’re like me, and you like wings, but you don’t have a fancy, schmancy smoker, there are a couple of ways you can make wings. Today though, let’s focus on the slow cooker version! It’s simple, and those wings come out mighty tasty!
I live in a small apartment with no balcony because even though I love balconies, the ones at this complex are not worth the extra $100 per month. Also, I think you’re not allowed to have grills, etc on them. So, I am always outta luck for grilling and such. I get by though with amazing slow cooker recipes and my handy dandy grill pan. YUM
On the next page, you’ll find easy step-by-step instructions for how to make some super tasty chicken wings right in your slow cooker!

Slow cooker recipes are great anytime! I especially love them in the summer because they don’t heat up my apartment like the oven and stove do. HOORAY! This recipe does require a bit of oven use, but only to get crispy skin. If you don’t care about that, go ahead and eat it straight from the slow cooker! I know my SO loves soggy, mushy skin. I like mine crisp.
