Fall = crock-pot weather again and I couldn’t be happier about it! Crock-pots are The. Best. and if you don’t have one you seriously need to get one! This crock-pot (affiliate link) is the one I use and love.
I wanted to make an easy meal last week so I decided to try cooking chicken drumsticks in the crock-pot. I had red potatoes on hand so they went in the crock-pot as well. It was a smashing success, in my humble opinion. 😉
If you like recipes with exact amounts, this may be a bit frustrating, but this is really just one of those “a little of this, a little of that” kind of dishes. You can’t really go wrong, unless of course you dump in a whole salt-shaker full of salt or something ha! :p
My biggest concern with cooking drumsticks in the crock-pot is that I didn’t want to lose the crispy skin that you get when you bake them. To remedy this I took the time to sear them a bit on each side in my cast iron skillet.
I seasoned the drumsticks while they were on the stove.
Next, I prepped my potatoes.
And here is everything, ready to cook away for a few hours!
- Chicken drumsticks
- Red potatoes
- Minced garlic
- Olive oil
- Season the chicken drumsticks with a little basil, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper. Sear on each side.
- Wash and cut red potatoes; place in crock-pot. Add a drizzle of olive oil, a teaspoon minced garlic, a few shakes of thyme and some salt; stir well.
- Place drumsticks on top of red potatoes. Cook for 6 hours on low (or what I did: 1 hour on high, then 2-3 on low.)
