Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Wings

Chicken wings tossed in a delicious buffalo wing sauce and cooked until fall apart tender in the slow cooker and then crisped under the broiler. A perfect appetizer for any occasion.


  • 4 lbs chicken wings fresh or frozen


  • 1 1/2 cups Buffalo sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder


  • Whisk together the ingredients for the Buffalo wing sauce. Pour ½ cup into a separate bowl and set aside.
  • Place wings in a 6qt slow cooker and cover with the remaining Buffalo wing sauce, leaving the ½ cup for later. Toss to combine.
  • Frozen Wings – cook on HIGH for 2.5-3 hours or Fresh Wings – cook on low 3 hours.
  • Once the wings have reached 165°F, remove from the slow cooker and place on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet.
  • Brush the wings with ½ cup of the Buffalo wing sauce.
  • Broil until the skin begins to bubble. Turn and broil on the other side until crisp, approximately 5 minutes per side.
  • Serve with celery and Ranch dressing.
