Awesome Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings


These crockpot wings were gone in five minutes when I made them for a Super Bowl party! Super easy to make in the slow cooker and then crisp up in the oven. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

Prep Time:

Total Time:
2 hrs 50 mins


  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)

  • ½ cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 (4 pound) frozen chicken wing sections, thawed

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)


  1. Combine 1 bottle hot pepper sauce, 1/2 cup butter, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Place chicken wings into slow cooker and pour sauce mixture over wings.

  3. Cook on High for 1 hour. Reduce heat to Low; cook for 1 hour more.

  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease several baking sheets.

  5. Spread wings onto prepared baking sheets and bake in the preheated oven until wings are crisp and browned, about 30 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, melt 1/2 cup butter with 1 bottle hot sauce in a small saucepan and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. Brush sauce onto wings just before serving.
