These really can’t get any easier- a simple blend of Sriracha hot chile sauce, a touch of citrus with the lime juice and the sweetness of the honey to hold all the flavors together, complimenting them and offering an explosion of delicious tangy flavor for your tastebuds!

Depending on the time of year that you make this limes may or may not be in season. If they’re not in season you can use ReaLime, which is 100% juice and imparts decent flavor to the recipe. It’s a great alternative to fresh limes. However, if you happen to have fresh limes on hand, here’s a simple method to ensure that every drop of juice is extracted, avoiding any waste:

You’ll Need:
3-4 pounds chicken wing drumettes, frozen
3/4 cup Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (or any Sriracha Sauce you prefer)
3/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
juice of Two limes (about 1/4 cup)

Combine the sauce, honey, butter and lime juice in the bottom of the slow cooker, stirring well to blend the ingredients together. Dump in the Chicken wings (after all, this is a “Dump” recipe!)

Stir the wings to coat them thoroughly in the sauce. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Alternatively, you can cook them on high for 3-4 hours.

Just prior to serving, line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup!) and turn the oven to Broil

Place the wings in a single layer on the cookie sheet and drizzle the sauce over the top, broil them for about 4-6 minutes or until they take on a crispy, caramelized texture,

During the summer months, place them on a HOT Grill for a couple minutes to give them that delicious caramelized glazed look and crispiness. We use these awesome Grill mats to get the grill marks without Burning the wings. (They’re washable, reusable and last ages, I’ve had mine for a couple years now, I LOVE IT).

Alternatively, if wings are too expensive in your area, regular drumsticks, which are frequently 99¢ a lb, also work great.

  1. Oh boy was this good! I used thighs and finished them off on the grill and served them with baked sweet potatoes. This is 3 alarm spicy, so be warned if you can’t take the heat.

    Next time I think I will try adding some fresh grated ginger to the sauce.

    Cooking them in the crock pot makes the flavor penetrate all the way through the meat. Excellent way to do chicken that you want to finish off on the grill. It cuts down the grilling time and the sauce doesn’t burn before the meat is done.

    Thanks for this recipe, I will be using it often and want to try it on chicken wings next.
