Plus, crockpot buffalo chicken wings are totally better than the frozen wings or restaurant wings that you can get because you can control the level of heat.

So, serving to kids? No problem, just use less Frank’s Hot Sauce. Serving these up to a crowd of spice-loving-barbarians? Cool, add an extra cup of Franks. See? So nice…

How to Make This Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Wings

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.
