Sweet and Spicy Crockpot Chicken Wings

I know we're all "over" Halloween and looking forward to Thanksgiving, but I need to steal your attention for 2 minutes and redirect it to Halloween. Growing up Halloween was a big deal. My dad loved it, was a die-hard trick-or-treating coach, and instilled a serious love for Halloween in my sister and I. Since we currently can't trick-or-treat we take passing out the candy very seriously. My sister doesn't get any trick-or-treaters where she lives so it's become an annual tradition for her to come to my house to help pass out the candy. I like to have some appetizer type foods available while she's there so we can both pick at it but don't need to sit down and eat. Enter these wings. I'll be honest, I didn't try these. I blame it on the pregnancy- again something I typically love made me feel sick at the thought of eating it. Mel and her boyfriend did though and both liked it. Next time I would consider removing the wings when they're done, thickening the sauce that was left in the crockpot, and then recoating the wings. I think that would make the sauce more pronounced!

2 pounds chicken wings 
1/4 cup chicken broth
Sriracha hot sauce
3 tbsp. brown sugar
Lawry's seasoning salt

1- Pour the broth into the bottom of the crockpot. 
2- Top with the chicken wings. Squeeze sriracha over the wings, tossing to coat. The more you use the more heat you're adding, but make sure the wings are coated. Sprinkle the brown sugar and seasoning salt over the wings, tossing to coat.
3- Set on low for 8 hours.


  1. These look sooo yummy! I can't wait to try it! Found you through Pinterest and I'm going to share this on my Facebook page. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  2. What is Sriracha Hot sauce? I have not been able to find it here in NC.


  3. Sounds awesome! Love sriracha sauce, use it with everything! Making these tomorrow!

  4. If I make 3 lbs of wings, how should I alter the recipe? I want to make for my Halloween get together tomorrow ;)

  5. If I don't like spicy is there something I can replace the hot sauce with? Thanks!
