Slow Cooker Soy and Lime Chicken Wings are finger lickin’ good! Add some chicken wings to your slow cooker, top with flavorful seasonings and get ready for the game!
One of my goals for this fall and winter is to use my slow cooker more often. It is the perfect kitchen accessory to use for weeknight meals and I often take it out on the weekends too. I make slow cooker chicken enchilada soup often and am looking to expand my archive of slow cooker meals. I love tossing a few things in the slow cooker and let it cook all day. It makes my house smell incredible and the prep and cleanup is easy. Slow cooker soy and lime chicken wings are perfect to serve as an appetizer or a main dish.
This recipe calls for a few staple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Add them to your slow cooker with some chicken and within hours you will have tender, juicy wings with deep flavor. The meat falls right off the bone as you bite into them. I made a batch and we had enough to eat as leftovers the next day. Brad even thought that they were better as leftovers!
Make dinner easy by throwing a few ingredients into a slow cooker and let it cook all day. If you have a slow cooker recipe that you really love, leave a link to it in the comments. I love trying new slow cooker meals!
Note: Because these are cooked in a crockpot, they yield tender, fall-off-the-bone, finger-licking good wings. I recommend using tongs to remove them from the crockpot. Enjoy!

Hello! I’d love to make this for dinner tomorrow. How many people does this serve?
Hi, Mio! It depends on how many wings you use and whether you are serving them as a meal or appetizer, but it generally serves around 4 to 6 people.
Do these turn out crispy or chewy/softer?
Hi, Lea! Because these are cooked in the slow cooker they are soft and tender.
This was disgusting. The wings were mushy and bland. Both my fiancee and I had one wing and were done. Wings DO NOT belong in the slow cooker
Hi, Sarah! I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the wings. They do have a different texture than wings baked or fried. I love them just as much and wish they had turned out better for you.
