These 3 Ingredient Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings only take 10 minutes to prep and three simple ingredents.




Wash fresh or thawed wings in a colander under cold water. Look through the wings and remove any pin feathers still attached. Using kitchen scissors, trim off any fat or extra skin. Blot the wings dry with paper towel.


Place all the wings in a 6-quart oval crockpot. Pour Dr. Pepper over the wings. Next, pour 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce over the wings. Stir the wings around to mix the Dr. Pepper and BBQ sauce. Place the lid on the crockpot. Turn the crockpot on high and cook for 2-3 hours. Check to see if they are done after 2 1/2 hours.


Crockpot temperatures fluctuate a bit. After the allotted cooking time, check if the wings are done using a meat thermometer to see if the center of the wings are at least 165 degrees. When done, remove the wings from the crockpot with a slotted spoon or tongs. Drain off and discard the combination of the chicken juices Dr. Pepper, and bbq sauce.


For the final step, place chicken wings back into the crockpot and pour 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce over the wings. Gently stir the wings to coat them with sauce. I like to use a silicon brush to dab sauce and brush wings. Place the lid back on. Cook wings again on high for 15 minute.
