Add the chicken, sauce, and butter (slice it up and lay on top of wings) to the slow cooker. Cook on HIGH for 2.5 - 3 hours. DO NOT open the lid while the wings are in the slow cooker, heat will escape and they will not cook.
After cooking time is done, preheat the oven to broil. Take the wings out of the slow cooker onto a baking sheet, leaving the sauce in the slow cooker.
Broil the wings in the oven for a few minutes on each side until browned and crisp. Remove all but one cup of the sauce from the slow cooker.
Add the wings back to the slow cooker, and stir them back into the sauce.
Serve with ranch dressing or blue cheese, carrot sticks, and celery sticks. Sprinkle the wings with green onions (optional).
Do not use frozen chicken wings. Thaw them completely and drain well.
You can use full size drumsticks for a complete meal. Cook for 4 hours on high.
For mild wings, look for "mild" red hot sauce.
