Easy Crockpot Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings

Easy Crockpot Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings
SERVES 6 | ACTIVE TIME 15 Min | TOTAL TIME  3 Hours 15 Minutes

4 pounds frozen chicken wing drumettes
3/4 cup sriracha sauce (the one with the rooster on the package)
3/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
juice of one lime (about 1/4 cup)

In a 5 quart slow cooker on low add sriracha sauce, butter, honey and lime juice.  Stir to combine.  Add chicken wings.  Stir until wings are well coated. Cook on high for 2-3 hours (or low 4-6 hours) until wings are cooked through.

Transfer the sauce to a saucepan over medium-high heat and boil it until it reduces to a thicker sauce, approximately 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Remove wings from slow cooker and place on a baking sheet lined with foil.  Drizzle sriracha honey sauce over wings.

Set oven to broil.  Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 2-3 minutes until the sauce starts to caramelize. Remove from oven. Coat wings with sauce again, broil for 1 minute, remove from oven.  Coat with sauce, broil 1 minute. Add more sauce, broil until sauce is caramelized.

Remove from oven, serve and enjoy.

DONNA'S NOTES:  You can use fresh wings.  Cook time would be 3-4 hours on low or 1 to 2 hours on high. Additionally, when using fresh your sauce will cook quicker. Approximately 3-5 minutes.

Instead of cooking the sauce down and broiling it you can mix up 2 tablespoons corn starch and 2 tablespoons water in a resealable container and shake it really well. Pour slurry into crockpot then cook an additional 30 minutes on high.
