Let’s Get Cooking!

Step 1: Prepare the Wings

No need to thaw the chicken wings. Rinse them in a colander under slow-running water to remove any ice crystals. This ensures the wings are clean and ready to be cooked.

Step 2: Crockpot Magic

Place the frozen wings in the Crockpot and cover them with cola. Yes, you read that right! The combination of chicken juices and cola creates a tender, juicy, and irresistibly flavorful experience. Trust us, it works like magic.

Step 3: Drain and Preheat

After the wings are done cooking, drain them well in a colander. Preheat your oven to 350° while doing so.

Step 4: Sauce ’em Up!

Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray it with cooking spray. Arrange the wings in a single layer on the prepared sheet and brush them with your favorite BBQ sauce. Sweet Baby Ray’s is highly recommended for that extra burst of mouthwatering flavor.

Step 5: Finish with a Char

Place the baking pan with the sauced wings in the preheated oven. Bake them for 10-12 minutes, then switch on the broiler to give them a little char on the skin. Keep an eye on them, as the char happens quickly. The end result will be finger-licking deliciousness that will have everyone coming back for more.

The Secret to Success

The secret to achieving perfectly cooked Crockpot BBQ Wings lies in placing them in the oven for a few minutes after removing them from the slow cooker. This step sets the BBQ sauce and prevents the wings from being too wet, resulting in a delightful texture and flavor combination.
