Spicy chicken wings are cooked in the crock pot with honey and barbecue sauce, along with spicy seasonings.


  • 3 pounds chicken wings (about 16 to 20 whole wings)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (any variety)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons mustard (prepared or spicy mustard)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Optional: 1 dash Tabasco sauce (or another hot sauce, to taste)

Steps to Make It

  1. Rinse chicken wings; pat dry. Cut off and discard wing tips then cut each wing at the joint to make two sections from each wing. Sprinkle wing pieces with salt and pepper; place the wings on an lightly oiled broiler pan.

  2. Broil (550 F) about 4 inches from the heat for 10 minutes on each side, or until the wings are nicely browned. With tongs, transfer the wings to the crockery insert of a slow cooker.

  3. In a bowl, combine barbecue sauce, honey, spicy mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco. Pour sauce over chicken wings.

  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours or on High 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

  5. Serve hot, directly from slow cooker, keeping temperature on LOW.
