Simple Slow Cooker BBQ Drumsticks

Hey there friends! I just wanted to share the new meal that I made last week.

This is a great meal for people getting out on their own and trying to get the hang of things. It’s also great for those on a tight budget and those who just don’t have time to cook. Maybe you’re going through a renovation and are stuck without an oven??

All this recipe consists of is two ingredients:

  • 10 Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 bottle of BBQ sauce (18oz)

Instructions:

  1. Spray slow cooker with nonstick spray
  2. Place drumsticks in slow cooker
  3. Cover
  4. Cook on high for 3 hours
  5. After 3 hours, drain juices from slow cooker
  6. Pour entire bottle of barbecue sauce over drumsticks
  7. Cover again
  8. Cook for another 30 minutes on high or until chicken is done.

Wow. That was easy, right?

I’m not sure if I have mentioned this yet, but we don’t have an oven. Honestly, we haven’t in two years or so.

We live off Crock-pot, skillet, stovetop, Pizzaz, and microwave meals. You’d be surprised what you can make without an oven.

Although we have been getting by, an oven would be very convenient. It also would come in handy for chicken recipes.

I would rank this recipe as a 3 out of 5 stars. I thought it was alright, but Wade wasn’t a huge fan.

I’m not the biggest barbecue sauce lover, so I wasn’t expecting to fall in love.

Wade likes the flavor more than I, but the texture was too “mooshy” for him. It was nice and tender but maybe…too tender (is there such a thing???)

I think it was missing the crispy texture that an oven or skillet provides.

If anyone has a solution to this problem, let me know! There is always more room for knowledge and improvement!
