  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 3 tbsp lime juice, fresh
  • 1 stick salted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp habañero sauce


  1. Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. 

    Place chicken wings in the slow cooker crock.

    Pour about half of the sauce into the slow cooker crock, and lightly stir so the wings are evenly coated. Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours. Place remaining sauce in the refrigerator.

    When wings are cooked, cover a baking pan with aluminum foil and place wings on the pan. Brush with about half the remaining sauce and broil on high for 2 minutes. Repeat on the second side. Serve with ranch or blue cheese and veggies!
