And so very tender. That’s one thing I love about making chicken recipes in the slow cooker. They’re never tough or dry. Just tender and juicy, every time.

That’s exactly what these Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Wings are, too–tender and juicy. Which is so much yummier than any restaurant fried chicken wing, let’s be honest.

How to Make This Slow Cooker BBQ ChickenWings

Step 1

Cut the chicken wings into parts, discarding the tips. I find using a sharp knife and cutting halfway through, then pulling the pieces apart is the most efficient way to cut chicken wings.
