a late developer of the honey, garlic and soy flavor trio. In fact, it was moving into our first home in Portugal that made me a honey addict and a super fan of slow cooking chicken wings.
We were moving in, and our elderly neighbor gave us a jar of homemade honey. I had never eaten honey before, and soon I was dipping a spoon into the jar wondering what all the fuss with honey was about.
In the same tone as Janice from Friends.
It was sweet, it
was amazing, and I wanted to eat it with everything.
I had also brought my slow cooker with me from England, and it was much smaller compared to the slow cookers most families have and yet it was perfect for mixing honey, garlic, soy sauce and five Chinese spices to make the best Asian-inspired chicken wings.
It became a tradition of Milner’s Saturday night dinner.

wings, another with our favorite slow cooker of Asian shredded pork and then our air fryer cobb salad
Then Sofia got a little older and fell madly in love with chicken wings and now, when we eat out, she is the first to cross the table to buy some chicken wings.
This family tradition started, of course, in 2015 when we moved house and now we’ve come full circle, and we moved back to England and got a much bigger slow cooker and we still love to make chicken wings slowly and still have a spoonful of honey while making them.

Cooking frozen chicken wings in slow cooker Now cooking frozen slow
cooker chicken wings
is an absolute NO NO. This is because you need a certain temperature when cooking chicken in the slow cooker and from frozen you will not achieve this.
I recommend you read: can you cook frozen chicken in slow cooker, which goes into a lot more detail about it?
If your chicken wings are frozen, I recommend soaking them in some water in the sink for an hour, or thawing them using the air fryer or instant pot or microwave.
Do you have to use liquid in a slow cooker for chicken?
No, it is not essential to use liquid in the slow cooker when cooking chicken. Although, of course, it depends on the type of chicken you are cooking in the slow cooker.
For example, a casserole, stew or soup will need liquid in the slow cooker.
But for chicken wings, chicken thighs, roast chicken, etc. it is not essential. In fact, if you take a look at our whole chicken slow cooker, you’ll notice that no liquid has been added.
Is it better to cook tall or low chicken in Crockpot?
It makes no difference to chicken wings, whether you cook them high or low. I’ve done both and found that the preference comes when I want to put on chicken wings and when I plan to eat.
I will normally turn on the slow cooker around 2pm for dinner at 6pm. That means a high cooker cooking in the slow cooker is ideal for me.
But if you have plans for Super Bowl slow cooker wings and are working all day, then slow to low cooking would be better for you.

” />Slow Cooker Chicken Wing Recipe Ingredients
Chicken – To start with the ingredients, it’s all about the wings. You can go with cheap supermarket wings or level up and use Butcher Box. They offer a lot of great quality meat at a great price.
Marinada – Because we’re making sticky slow-cooker chicken wings, you’ll want a marinade of your choice. I go with honey, garlic puree, ginger puree and soy to make my marinade, but you can use a jar of sauce if you prefer.
Seasoning – For seasoning we use salt, pepper, five Chinese spices and oriental spices.
Then, for the kitchen gadgets we’ve used in this slow cooker chicken wing recipe, it’s just been our Crockpot. We have this one and it does an amazing job and it’s also great for skipping.
