How to Prepare 3 Ingredient Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings

Before we dive into the details, let’s understand the heart of our recipe. The beauty of our 3 Ingredient Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings lies in its simplicity. With just chicken wings, a can of Coke, and your favorite BBQ sauce, you can prepare a meal that’s both satisfying and delicious. Here, the Coke acts as a tenderizer, making the wings fall-off-the-bone tender, while the BBQ sauce brings all the flavors together into a mouth-watering delight.


  • 12-16 chicken wings (do not thaw)
  • 1 can of Coke
  • 1 cup BBQ Sauce (we recommend Sweet Baby Ray’s for best results)

With these three ingredients, you’re all set to create a meal that’s delectable, easy to make, and perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re hosting a game night or looking for a simple family dinner, these BBQ chicken wings won’t disappoint.


  1. Turn your Crockpot on low.
  2. Pour the can of Coke into the Crockpot.
  3. Place all of the chicken wings into the Coke.
  4. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.
  5. Remove the wings from the Crockpot and transfer them to a baking pan covered with foil.
  6. Brush the wings generously with BBQ sauce.
  7. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes, just until the BBQ sauce is heated.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

This uncomplicated process will help you serve up an impressive plate of BBQ chicken wings. The long, slow cooking in the crockpot ensures the wings are incredibly tender, while a quick finish in the oven gives them a flavorful outer layer.

Can I use frozen chicken wings for this recipe?

Yes, you can use frozen chicken wings. There is no need to thaw them before cooking, making this recipe even more convenient!

What kind of BBQ sauce should I use?

While we recommend Sweet Baby Ray’s for its balanced sweet and tangy taste, you can use any BBQ sauce you prefer or even try a homemade version!

Can I cook the wings on high to save time?

Yes, you can cook the wings on high, but we recommend cooking them on low. Slow cooking ensures the wings are tender and well-infused with the flavors of the Coke and BBQ sauce.

Can I add additional spices or ingredients to this recipe?

Absolutely! This recipe is versatile and lends itself well to customization. If you enjoy a bit more spice, you can add a dash of hot sauce, cayenne pepper, or chili flakes to the BBQ sauce. A sprinkle of garlic powder or onion powder can also add more depth to the flavor. However, remember that adding more ingredients will alter the simplicity of this 3-ingredient recipe.

What can I serve alongside these BBQ Chicken Wings?

These wings go well with a wide range of sides. Some favorites include coleslaw, corn on the cob, a green salad, or classic french fries. For a healthier option, consider a side of roasted or steamed vegetables.

Can I make a larger batch of these wings in my Crockpot?

Yes, you can easily double or triple this recipe, depending on the size of your Crockpot. Just make sure the wings are mostly submerged in the Coke and that there’s enough space for the heat to circulate.

Can I use diet Coke or Coke Zero instead of regular Coke?

You can substitute regular Coke with Diet Coke or Coke Zero, but be aware it may alter the taste slightly due to the different sweeteners used. Regular Coke’s sugar contributes to the caramelization and overall flavor of the dish.

How can I store leftovers?

If you have leftovers, allow the wings to cool down to room temperature, then store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should keep for 3-4 days. When ready to eat, you can reheat them in the oven at 350° until heated through.

Enjoy your cooking adventure with this easy and delightful 3 Ingredient Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings recipe! Remember, the best dishes are not only those that satisfy your taste buds but also bring joy and convenience to your cooking experience.
