Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Wings

  • Total Time: 2 hours 45 minutes
  • Yield: 3-1/2 pounds


Flavorful and tender buffalo wings prepared in your slow cooker, then baked for a perfectly crisp crust full of flavor!


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle buffalo wing sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Pinch of red (cayenne) pepper
  • 3 1/2 pounds chicken wings, cut in half (THAWED not frozen)


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.  Add wing sauce, honey, garlic powder, seasoned salt and red pepper. Stir well to combine and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and set aside (reserve 1/3 cup of this mixture for brushing the wings before they’re baked).
  2. Place chicken wings into your slow cooker insert and top with buffalo sauce mixture. Cover and cook on high heat for one hour and then low heat for one hour.
  3. Place wings on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, aluminum foil or sprayed with cooking spray. Brush with the reserved sauce mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
