Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings

This is the ultimate game day recipe (that you don't have to pay attention to)!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings
Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings

This recipe for Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings is just what you've been craving. Buffalo chicken wings are a favorite for game day appetizers. But they don't have to be complicated to make! This recipe uses your slow cooker, so you can focus on spending your quality time with friends and family instead of slaving over the stove. This recipe does have quite a few ingredients, but don't be intimidated by the list. It's the hot sauce and the cayenne pepper that truly make this recipe "buffalo." Give it a try, and you'll be coming back for seconds.

From the Chef: Football season isn't complete without homemade buffalo wings. Sticky hot orange fingers are one of my favorite visions of winter. Messy hands, the ultimate sacrifice, are so worth it! And when served with ranch or blue cheese dressing to counter the spiciness, these are everything you need in a party snack.

Preparation Time1 hr

Cooking Time - Text2 hours on High, then 2 hours on Low


  • 2 (12-ounce) bottles hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 3 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Spray the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

  2. In a large saucepan, combine 1 bottle of hot pepper sauce, 1/2 cup (1 stick) of the butter, the Worcestershire sauce, honey, brown sugar, dried oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

  3. Place the chicken wings in the slow cooker and pour the sauce over the wings.

  4. Cook the wings on High for 2 hours. Reduce the heat to Low and cook for 2 hours more. Just before the wings are done, preheat the oven to 400°F.

  5. In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining bottle of hot pepper sauce and 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter and simmer over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.

  6. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Place the wings on the baking sheets and cook for 20 minutes, until crispy.

  7. For the ranch dipping sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together the sour cream, buttermilk, mayonnaise, garlic, dill, chives, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Chill until ready to use.

  8. Brush the wings with the remaining sauce and serve with the ranch dipping sauce.


  1. You can substitute store-bought ranch dressing for the homemade ranch dipping sauce, if you wish.

Omg, this recipe is a hot wing lovers fantasy! At first, I thought wings in a slow cooker...ewww assuming they were gonna be soft and chewy until I read further into the recipe and now I can't wait to try it. The awesome thing is...if you're a huge fan of wings, like me you can make a ton of these and the wings you're not going to eat right away you can freeze. Then all you have to do is bake them the next time you're in the mood for wings!
