Celebrate Crocktober: Game Day Slow Cooker Sweet & Sticky Chicken Wings

Let your slow cooker do the work with Game Day Slow Cooker Sweet & Sticky Chicken Wings.  An easy and delicious recipe for football season in your line up of game day food.

I have cookbook to share in celebration of Crocktober: *Stock the Crock: 100 Must-Have Slow-Cooker Recipes, 200 Variations for Every AppetiteAn All-New Slow Cooker Bible from Phyllis Good, the New York Times Bestselling Author of the Fix-It and Forget-It Series.

Stock the Crock brings together the expertise of America’s most popular slow-cooker authority with a fresh collection of 100 essential, innovative, and easy-to-prepare recipes-each with variations allowing readers to customize the dish according to their dietary needs. You’ll find beloved classics, as well as dishes you might be surprised can be done successfully in a slow cooker. (Hello, slow-cooker crème brûlée!)

Whether you are looking to accommodate gluten-free, paleo, or vegetarian diets, or prefer slow-cooker meals perfectly sized for one or two people, this cookbook provides smart ideas, more than 100 recipe photos, and cooking hacks that will change the way you use your favorite fuss-free cooking appliance. Learn simple make-ahead tricks, convenient baking tips, and how to make two recipes at once using the same cooker, so you can simplify cooking and spend more time enjoying your family and friends around a wonderful, delicious meal.

There are lots to tempt my taste buds and plenty of inspiration to fire up my slow cooker in this cookbook! In addition the usual suspects of soups, stews and chowders, I am looking forward to trying Cheesy Mushroom Risotto, Carmelized Onions, Cider-Baked Apples, Butternut Squash and Kale Gratin, Sweet-with-Heat Beef Short Ribs, Pumpkin Spice Crème Brulee and Berry Wonderful Fruit Crisp!

There’s also a “Make Your Own Basics” section that includes recipes for homemade bone broth, tomato paste, honey barbecue sauce, apple and pear butter, and yogurt, to name a few.

I was intrigued by the slow cooker Crunchy-Sweet Chicken Wings recipe in the poultry chapter.

 A perfect and easy recipe for game day and football season.

I made a couple of small changes to the recipe. . . running the wings under the broiler at the end to add a little char, and the addition of some cornstarch to the delicious sauce the wings cook in, to thicken it up for serving.

And there is an alternative and “swap” in the recipe to make these wings with some whiskey (bourbon) if you’re so inclined –> color me inclined ;)

Game Day Slow Cooker Sweet & Sticky Chicken Wings, adapted from Stock the Crock


1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 1/2 cups honey

3/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

1/2 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons canola oil

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 pounds chicken wings (or drumettes)

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Garnish: toasted sesame seeds, chopped green onion

Spray interior of 5 or 6 quart slow cooker crock with nonstick cooking spray.

In medium size mixing bowl, stir together salt, pepper, honey, soy sauce, ketchup, canola and sesame oils, and minced garlic. Mix well.

Place a layer of wings in the slow cooker crock. Spoon a portion of sauce over the top. Make another layer of wings, staggering them so they don’t directly overlap the first layer. Spoon a portion of sauce over the second layer. Continue with layers topping with sauce until all wings are in cooker.

Cover. Cook on low 3 to 4 hours or on high 1 – 2 hours until chicken is tender. Remove wings and keep warm.

In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water. Stir mixture into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high heat for an additional 10 – 15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.

 Preheat oven to broil. Place wings on foil lined baking sheet. Broil 3 – 5 minutes or until wings are caramelized and lightly charred.

Serve with sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.

Substitutions: For a flavor boost, substitute 1 1/4 cup maple syrup for honey. Reduce soy sauce to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup of whiskey.

    I make my annual New Year’Day Pork and Sauerkraut in my Crock-Pot. Dumplings are added at the end.

    The photos and index for this Crock-Pot cook book are amazing and have really whet my appetite!!!!!

    Wow! I’m not a fan of wings….but they sure got my attention with the bourbon option!

        I love to make chicken soup and minestrone in the crock pot, but my favorite recipe is turning jarred spaghetti sauce into something fabulous. Just cook it on low all day or overnight. I add a little water (used to get the remaining sauce from the jars and to replace water that will be lost in cooking). I like to use 3 jars with 2-3 lbs. cooked and drained ground beef. The beef could be added later in the cooking. This makes enough sauce to package some in the freezer for later use. I usually buy a sauce with garlic, like Barella Roasted Garlic.

    I have a favorite Chicken Cordon Bleu crock pot recipe that I like to make for company. Crock pots are under-utilized, I think, by me as well!
    Looking forward to my first NC birthday since moving here last October…on the 20th!

    I recently came across a recipe to cook butternut squash in the crockpot, single ingredient along with a bit of water. I hate cutting up and peeling the squash and this was great way to cook it. Put whole squash in pot with about a cup of water and cook on high for 3 or 4 hours or until fork tender. Remove and cut open when cool, remove seeds and scrape out flesh. Easy peasy!!! No more watery squash and all my fingers are still intact.

    • October 13, 2017 at 7:24 am

      Great tip Sherlie! I usually cheat and buy my butternut already cubed at the grocery store. This will help me in the future :)

  15. October 13, 2017 at 7:56 am

    Your wings look so tasty, Mary!! My favorite crock pot recipe is Pasta Fagioli Soup. I’m waiting (and waiting) for Fall temperatures to arrive so I can make it. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  17. October 13, 2017 at 8:02 am

    Living on a busy horse farm, my crockpot is a lifesaver! Our favorite recipe is a pot roast recipe given to me by a friend of my late mother. It is simple with onion soup mix, worcestershire and cream of mushroom soup. We even have taken our crockpot to our annual national horse show which covers ten days, and made it there plus other dishes.

    My favorite Italian dish has always been Eggplant Parmesan, not exactly a light dish. Now we have a recipe for the crockpot where the eggplant is not fried and feta is used instead of Parmesan and is served with spaghetti. Just as delicious and better for you. Yum!

  22. October 13, 2017 at 8:35 am

    Love my crockpot..I have 3 and use everyone for different things. My favorites are corn beef and cabbage..and I make my apple butter in my crockpot. I was amazed how easy making apple butter is! GOID LUCK everyone and thanks for sharing Mary!! ❤️❤️❤️

I cannot wait to make the wings in my Crock Pot..love using the crock pot…one of my favorite crock pot creations is just putting in a turkey breast with some chicken stock….Love having turkey dinner for an every day meal and then the leftovers for sandwiches. It comes out terrific in the crock pot! The book sounds amazing! Have a great weekend Mary!

    I make Taco soup and also Sauerkraut soup which are both wonderful. I wish I had the recipe for the Pasta e Fagoli soup mentioed above. I do my version of Olive Gardens and we love it. I agree that my cock pot is under utilized and would love to do more with it. That was a great tip about doing the squash in the crockpot, I’ll remember that one for a sure. Your chicken wings have my mouth watering! Lol Thanks Mary!

    Hi Mary
    I don’t use my crockpot as often as I’d like. But when I do it makes life easier.

    I like to pot roast with potatoes and carrots cooked in the crockpot. Makes the house smell so good and cozy. Well I know what I’m making for dinner Sunday.

    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway

  31. October 13, 2017 at 9:06 am

    Red beans done in the slow cooker for red beans and rice. I grill my sausage and add it right before cooking the rice. I’m hoping for cooler weather coming up so I can make this dish along with soups and stews. I have 3 crock pots and 2 pressure cooker/slow cookers. Needless to say, I love to cook this way!

    I have referred to my copy of Fix It and Forget It since my children were small! I love the idea of an updated, fresh cookbook! My go to crock pot recipe is a lovely boneless beef roast with gravy (from the FIFI cookbook!) However, I use our crock pot at least once a week this time of year for many soups and stews and would love to try some “non-traditional” recipes! Happy Crocktober to you Mary from Boring, Oregon…another rainy day here and chilly!

    Love my crockpot! As fall comes in, we start craving chili! I have a 6 qt pot and a smaller one. Make meat chili in big one and veggie in the smaller one and invite the family! The cookbook looks great and I can always use a new crockpot. We also make chunky applesauce ahead of time to serve on the side with our chili.

    My favorite crockpot October recipe is homemade applesauce. I leave the peels on and add cinnamon and apple cider. No added sugar needed and the apples are provided by my generous neighbors with the apple trees. I love Fall! It’s my favorite season.

  57. October 13, 2017 at 12:43 pm

    Boneless Pork Chops and Apples cooked together is my favorite, especially in the fall and winter.

    Hi, Mary—I adore all my crockpots (I have 3–a mini for single-serve, my ancient 2-1/2 “country” corning ware one, and my 7 quart…). I use them all the time. I worked for 50 years, and believe me, it was so nice to come home to a meal that was ready to eat, especially on a dark winter night…and it made the house smell homey, too! My current favorite recipe is the French dip that I just made yesterday for my hubby’s lunchtime sandwiches…I serve it on fresh, crusty rolls, and he’s a happy guy!

    I make a five-hour beef stew that is so simple, and it uses instant tapioca to thicken it. It’s stew meat, potatoes, carrots, green pepper, onion, the tapioca, and V-8 juice. No browning the meat, either. Put it all in the crockpot, cook on high for five hours or in a 250 degree oven for the same time. No peeking unto it is finished. Stir to mix then serve. I’ve sometimes made a simple loaf of challah bread to go with. It’s a perfect cool weather meal. Add a green salad, and dinner is served.

  70. October 13, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    Hey, if it can be done in a crockpot, count me in! I love easy. THose wings look amazing, and I like the char effect.

  71. October 13, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    What a great giveaway! I love that wing recipe and will have to give it a try. I don’t use my crockpot as much as I like, but I really love using it for cooking beans.

    As a young working mother of two busy children I used my crockpot for several meals a week. Now that I am retired I have a nice new large crockpot with more temperate setting and an automatic timer. What I would have given for that years ago, however I still enjoy preparing meals in the crockpot. My favorite recipe is a whole chicken with sliced onions and lemons on the bottom, quartered lemons, onions and garlic in the cavity, with lemon zest, olive oil and fresh parsley rubbed under the skin. It is delicious, my husband loves it and the aroma is mouth watering.

    I have so many favorites it’s hard to choose just one! An easy simple one is ranch mushrooms. It’s usually a big hit at potlucks.

    I love making apple pie cake with extra cinnamon in my slow cooker this time of the year.

    I love putting something in the crock pot and having the rest of the day free. Mississippi Pot Roast is a current favorite.

    I make a stew from a recipe from my mother. I always feel a connection to her when I make it

    One of my favorite recipes is for roast. Take a round roast and add cream of mushroom soup and a packet of Lipton Onion soup mix – so good!

    My favorite go-to slow cooker recipe is “chicken stew.” It is so easy to make, all it calls for is chicken breast, potatoes, carrots, spices, chicken broth and onions. So simple, but so delicious. I always make it on a cool fall day and it is perfect, easy clean up at night.

    We love waking up to a crockpot breakfast – put on the night before, and ready to eat when we wake up (eggs, hash browns, cheese, onion, bacon/sausage or ham, salt, pepper. When ready to eat, top with sour cream, salsa, green onions or avocado).

    I don’t use mine as much as I should. I do like doing pulled pork, and soups, and your wings sound great. I love bourbon in bbq sauce. Love your tabkescapes! I have a dish fetish also😉

    Pulled pork! Can’t wait to try these wings!

  89. October 14, 2017 at 12:52 pm

    I’m torn between two favorite recipes! One is pulled pork and the other is the wonderful chicken stew you posted not long ago. We have made it several times since your post. Your blog is SUCH a continual blessing!

    My favorite crockpot recipe is pot roast made with 1 pkg Italian seasoning, 1 pkg Mc Cormick brown gravy mix, 1pkg Ranch dressing. Mix all with 1 1/2 c water. Pour over pot roast. Cook on Low setting about 5 or 6 hours.

  93. October 14, 2017 at 3:14 pm

    This sounds like the bible of slow cooking Mary! I love that it provides so much versatility in the recipes. I have been turning to my slow cooker more and more often as my energy at the end of the day is always dwindling, and knowing dinner is done is such a great feeling! I have seen a slow cook creme brulee that I am anxious to try. Right now it’s hard to pick a favorite, but the biscuit bubble up I made a few weeks ago will be made and variations over and over. Hard to believe so many things can be cooked in one! Great giveaway!

    For many years I taught first grade and every fall we would make applesauce in the crockpot- then eat it at the end of the day! So yummy!

    My favorite crockpot recipe is Gumbo Soup that my Mom concocted about 30 years ago (possibly longer, can’t really remember). Thanks so much for offering the chance to win “Stock the Crock”. Lately, I have been searching for different and unusual recipes to use in my crock pot, so this book would make a great addition to my cookbook collection.

    Hello Mary! Another delightful book. And yes, love those slow-cookers. My fav machine in kitchen! My favorite recipes (narrowed down, of course, from many) are Stuffed Pepper Soup; Mom’s Chili; and my favorite dessert, Pumpkin-Cranberry bread in Slow Cooker! That was a great recipe and easy to make in Slow Cooker. Keep those recipes coming!!!

    My friends love it when I make Crockpot candy with peanuts, semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter chips and white almond bark. Oh so easy and yet oh so good. Winning would be great. More fantastically easy recipes for my crockpot. Exactly what I need for the upcoming holiday season…

    I love my crockpot and use it all the time. I have used it for corn on the cob(great for a large crowd), baked potatoes, grits and cooked a turkey breast in it … it was soo moist and tender! I use it so much I can’t name just one favorite! I have to try your wings recipe, they look delicious! Love your blog and all your giveaways!

    Made the chicken wings for guests last night–Love them!! I’m also dying to try the Homemade Hash Browns recipe in the book. I need to learn to branch out beyond the usual baked beans and soup crockpot recipes.
    Thanks for another great recipe and a lovely giveaway.

    Just made beef stew, one of my favorites. Also tried meatloaf in the crockpot for the first time it was delicious. Always looking for new recipes to try.

  112. October 16, 2017 at 12:02 pm

    Thank you for having this giveaway! I love crock pot season! There’s so many great recipes I love to make but I would have to say my favorite is chili! I let it simmer all day and it makes the house smell so good! I can’t resist dipping into the pot with a tortilla chip to do a taste test as it cooks!

    The recipe book looks amazing and I do need a new crock-pot! Mine’s sooooooo ancient and the handle is broken.
    I love so many crockpot recipes but my favorite has to be brisket or stews in a crockpot. I’ve not yet tried dessert using this vessel but would love to try it. Thank you!!

  117. October 17, 2017 at 8:44 pm

    I love making Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs in the crockpot.

    I finally learned my Grandmother’s chili crock recipe…never paid much attention to the kitchen growing up, but remembered the yummy smells, lol…Now that I’m on my own after graduating college, and have a new full time job…I’m not home till after 6:30pm some nights – so I now understand the love for crock cooking! Would love to win this cookbook…one recipe just isn’t enough, hehe! Love all your beautious pics too…your life is one for us younger gals to aspire to someday❣️ Gianna 😍

    My favorite slow cooker recipe is Smothered Steak. I brown a chuck steak that’s been seasoned with a Cajun spice blend, then add water, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. I cook it for about 6 hours and let it rest on warm for many more hours (while I sleep). I serve it over brown rice.

    Sounds like a great cookbook! Loved the sound of the recipes you highlighted in your blog. My favorite (no surprise) baked beans! But the turkey breast I made last year for Thanksgiving was easy and turned out great, also!

    • October 19, 2017 at 3:04 pm

      Yes, You’re famous for those nuclear beans! ;)

  123. February 1, 2019 at 1:10 pm

    My favorite slow cooker recipe is the Mississipi Roast that went viral on the internet. So easy and too good to be true.
