Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce
I’ve always loved the garlic parmesan wing sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings. If you’ve ever tasted it, then you know how good it is! It’s not too hot or spicy, it’s just full of flavor and perfectly seasoned. So learning how to make my own version of that sauce at home was a must.
This parmesan garlic sauce works great in the slow cooker, but you can use it with any wing recipe. So if you prefer to cook them with another method (Air Fryer, baked, grilled, etc.), just add the sauce in the right step for that method.
Wing Sauce Ingredients
- Garlic: Use about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic, or more if you want to intensify the flavor.
- Mayonnaise: I recommend using light mayo for this recipe.
- Olive Oil
- Corn Syrup
- Cheese: Use grated parmesan cheese.
- Lemon Juice
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Seasonings: Add dried oregano, dried basil, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper.
- Optional: If you want your sauce a little spicier, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or hot sauce.

These slow cooker garlic parmesan wings are SO easy to make. No stress, no hassle, just let the wings cook in that sauce and they’re ready to eat!
You can use bone-in or boneless chicken wings for this recipe. And you can use fresh or frozen (just thaw frozen wings before cooking).
These wings needs 3-4 hours to cook on the high setting. If you prefer to cook on LOW, allow 7 hours to fully cook.
If you don’t have corn syrup in your pantry, or just don’t want to use it, there are a few ingredients you can use instead. Substitute it for honey, light molasses, or agave.
These crockpot garlic parm wings make a great appetizer for parties, game day, and BBQs. They are easy to serve along with other apps, snacks, dips, and finger foods, or as part of a chicken wings buffet with all your favorite flavors.
If you want to eat them as a meal, add these parmesan potato wedges, some simple veggies, or potato salad.
And of course you can’t forget the dipping sauce! Serve them with hot sauce, ranch dressing, blue cheese, or buffalo sauce.
How do you make crock pot wings crispy?
Cooking chicken wings in a slow cooker doesn’t lead to the crispiest result, but I have a trick to fix that! I like to finish them off in the oven for just a couple of minutes, to give them that crispy bite.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. When the garlic parm wings are done in the crock pot, arrange them in a single layer on the sheet. Place them in the oven under the broiler for just a few minutes (2-5 minutes).
This is a great way to reheat leftover wings as well. Warm them up then broil to finish them!
If you don’t want to take the extra step though, they still TASTE amazing without the baking. That parmesan garlic wing sauce is just so good either way.
Can I use frozen chicken wings for this recipe?
Absolutely! Just thaw the wings first, then add them into the crock pot according to the recipe instructions. The USDA does not recommend adding frozen chicken directly into a slow cooker, so defrosting means you can be sure everything is cooked safely.

Delicious but 7 hours too long
They were certainly tender and fell off the bone so even under broiler didn’t help make them finger food
I’m sorry this recipe wasn’t quite to your liking, Susan!
I am going to try this soon and was wondering if you could put them under the broiler for a few minutes when they’re done to crisp them up. Has anyone tried that???
I am wondering the same. I was thinking broiler or possibly grill. I may try that. I like crispy wings. But the sauce sounds great!
My husband and son love wings so this will be a fun new twist for me to try. Pinning to make soon!
Awesome!! Hope you love these :)
Can you substitute honey for the corn syrup?
Tried these wings for game night and they were a BIG hit!
It also freed up the oven for other appetizers
