I get everything I need for my tailgating parties from Walmart, it’s a one stop shop! They have a wide variety of Kraft Heinz products that make game day entertaining quick and effortless for busy families. This recipe features KRAFT Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Sauce; it’s the perfect complement to the tender slow cooker chicken wings!

How Do You Make Slow Cooker Chicken Wings?

For these slow cooker chicken wings, the chicken is par-cooked before it’s coated in a simple yet delicious sauce and slow cooked to perfection. I love this recipe because the prep time is so short – just pop the wings into the oven and slow cooker, then kick back and relax while you wait for your snacks to be ready.

  1. I have about 2 hours left and the sauce is looking kinda watery? Like it’s not sticking onto the chicken. Is there any advice?
