My recipe for Crock-Pot Boneless BBQ Chicken Wings all started with a conversation between my husband and I at our favorite wing joint. We both prefer boneless wings and it occurred to us we could probably make the same thing at home using our crock-pot, a bag of chicken bites, and a bottle of BBQ sauce.

Crock-Pot Boneless BBQ Chicken Wings A few months later, I was getting really tired of Friday night feeling like every other night. I had a strong desire to do something on Friday nights that would set it apart from the rest of the week and make it something to look forward to again like I did when I was much much younger (like before children and my oldest one is 18 ).

Out of that desire  crock-pot boneless BBQ chicken wings  and a redbox movie night was born.

The kids, don’t normally join us. First they don’t want to wait that long for dinner and second they don’t want to see their parents snuggling and kissing. I eat a generous snack at 4 pm so I can hold out until 8 pm, and it is always worth the wait. My hubby and I both look forward to wing and movie night now.

All You Need For Crock-Pot Boneless BBQ Chicken WingsThis recipe for crock-pot boneless BBQ chicken wings  is more processed than a lot of my recipes but our family follows an 80/20 diet of whole foods to processed foods. This balance allows me to feel like I am not constantly in the kitchen and helps me avoid take out saving us money.

I dump the bag of frozen chicken bites (mine is 1 lb 8 0z) in my crock-pot (I love having a small crock-pot  for sauces and sides)  and cover them in Honey BBQ sauce. You can use whatever kind of BBQ sauce you want. Personally I like one with a bit more kick but my husband really likes the honey one.

  1. Oh Honey! These little bites look fabulous. We would lick our plates clean. Thanks a million for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck. Looking forward to what you share the next time.

  2. Julie in Michigan says:

    what sized crock pot did you use? can’t wait to make these, hopefully tonight!

  3. Love Aldis. Am going today to buy the stuff. Thank You

  4. What brand of chicken bites, are they breaded or not? Can’t wait to make them

    • Yes they are breaded and it doesn’t matter what brand you use, I have used the ones from Aldis and Ruler Foods.

      • I went to three different grocery stores today, and I couldn’t find anything called “chicken bites” only nuggets or chunks, or boneless wings. Do you mind telling me the brand? Thank you, then I can do a product locator search

        • I just did a search for Aldis foods, and there are none in my area, I live in TX. I am thinking that maybe the chicken chunks are the closet to the bites

        • Chunks might work, so might boneless wings, as long as they are a breaded product. My husband one made them with the breaded boneless chicken strips once and they still turned out although not as easy to eat.

  5. Thank you for this recipe. I told my husband about this and we are going to give it a try since he loves Buffalo Wild Wings.

  6. HI WOULD LOVE TO MAKE THIS TOMORROW FOR MY FAMILY, BUT HAVE ONE QUESTION. YOU PUT IN THE INSTRUCTIONS TO COOK ON HIGH 2 HOURS AND LOW FOR 1 HOUR. JUST WANTED TO DOUBLE CHECK. USUALLY IT IS LOW FOR 2 HRS AND HIGH FOR 1… THANKS FOR THE GREAT RECIPES

  7. What can you substitute the bag of frozen chicken bites for something else

  8. Can I use the T.G.I. Friday’s Buffalo Style Sauce Boneless Chicken Bites, 15 oz that you can get at Walmart?

    • Victoria says:

      I assume from the description that these already have sauce on them? Which if they do I guess you could but you wouldn’t need sauce, if they are already flavored.

  9. Teresa Charles says:

    I am making about 10 lbs for a party. I have a big enough crockpot to hold it all. Do i need to adjust the recipe?

  10. This turned out good! I used 2/3 of a bottle of bbq sauce and 1/3 of a bottle of hot wing sauce (I used BWW brand).

    Just an FYI, I used a large slow cooker and I on needed the 2 hours on high (no time on low). They were definitely cooked! Then switched it to warm until we were ready to eat.
