These spicy and sweet Slow Cooker Honey Soy Chicken Wings are the most delicious appetizer ever! Just dump in a crock pot and stir- out come the tastiest, fall-off-the-bone wings you'll ever make!
I love chicken wings.
They are delicious, easy to set out at parties, and always the first thing gone from my appetizer spreads.
But let's be honest, sometimes making wings can be a pain in the butt- especially the most delicious, fall-off-the-bone tender kind.
But that doesn't have to be the case.
I am not generally a fan of sweet wings- to me, wings need to be spicy and have a ton of flavor.
I love the sticky, thick texture honey gives to wing sauce when cooked on a low temperature over time though, so I knew i needed to find some bold, delicious spices to pair with the honey to get the flavor I was looking for- and then I just needed to figure out what way to cook them.
Only, I decided to make them my own and put a little bit of an asian-inspired twist on them with some shoyu (soy sauce), a little chili paste, and some special spices.
And right then, these Slow Cooker Honey Soy Chicken Wings were born!

Tips To Perfect Slow Cooker Honey Soy Wings
Also, I know you might be a bit freaked out by the baking powder coating.
I get it- it just looks weird. And clumpy.
But this just helps to draw a bit of moisture out of the chicken while they cook so they don't end up totally falling off the bone and maintaining their shape- as well as working to thicken the sauce.
It will look like you don't have enough sauce when you add it to your crock pot, but don't worry- the chicken will release a lot of moisture that will add to the sauce during cooking.
Simply stir the chicken once about every hour or so (no vigorous stirring, just move the wings around a bit and then put the lid back on and go about your day) to make sure the sauce is spread evenly.
These wings are the most delicious and easy appetizer ever.
And trust me- I am a girl who knows my wings!
I can't wait to make these again and again!

And if you're curious about the nutritional analysis on these wings, they aren't the worst choice you can pick for an appetizer- and are pretty good when eaten in moderation.
One serving is about 4-5 pieces (which is about 2 full wings) - they are a bit high in sodium and cholesterol, but are a lower calorie pick compared to other appetizers that are often filled with calories and fat!
I hope you enjoy these wings as much as I do!
