Slow Cooker Sticky Spicy Chicken Wings

These savory spicy wings are so yummy, they have the sweetness from the honey, and brown sugar and the heat from sriracha, the saltiness from the soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. A perfect combination. These wings are so simple and easy. A crockpot recipe that everyone will love. For parties, snacks at home, dinner, or any occasion.
