Slow Cooker Apricot BBQ Chicken Wings {Tailgating Recipes}

Slow Cooker Apricot BBQ WingsIt’s Football Friday here on the blog! We kicked things off last week with a tasty hot corn dip & some other fun football ideas! And, this week we’re all about delicious tailgating recipes! My share are these delicious slow cooker apricot bbq chicken wings! Super easy to make and tasty!
Apricot Chicken WingsThese wings could NOT be easier to make and they’re totally kid friendly too! One of our boys LOVES chicken wings, but can’t do them too spicy. So, I set out to make something a little sweeter like honey BBQ, only in this case we went for apricot BBQ. And, they are SO good! Making them in the crock pot is perfect for not having to spend loads of time in the kitchen on game days. Plus, the meat is so tender!

Author:
Ingredients
  • 4 pounds chicken wing drumettes, frozen
  • 1 18oz bottle BBQ sauce (or approx 2 cups)
  • 1 C apricot preserves
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 TBS garlic powder
  • 2 T worcestershire sauce
Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the sauces & spices. Remove about ½ cup of the mixture and refrigerate for later!
  2. Add the chicken wings to a large slow cooker, then cover with the sauce mixture. Stir until wings are well-coated. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  3. Once done, set oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  4. Remove wings from slow cooker and place on the lined baking sheet. Drizzle with some of the slow cooker sauce if desired. Broil for approximately 2 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from oven, flip wings, and brush wings with the remaining sauce mixture that you saved out.
  6. Return to oven and broil for an additional 3-5 minutes, until sauce starts to caramelize.
  7. Remove from oven and serve!
Notes
I recommend using a non-sweet BBQ sauce for this recipe. Use your favorite store-bought or from scratch version (approximately 2 cups no matter which you choose).

    I just made these yesterday and my husband and his friend who are pubfare lovers both said they were the best wings they ever had! I cooked them on high for 3.5 hours and then left them warm in the crockpot for another hour orso before broiling them. The result was a fall off the bone, somewhat sweet, very flavourfull snack that I will keep in my recipe arsenal from now on! It’s so easy to make too… with two toddlers running around this is perfect… and they loved them too btw 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
