Hello there, and happy Sunday! We’re headed out to see a movie and get some fish & chips at the local pub, but I just had to take a minute to write to you and give you this recipe! Are you ready for SUPER easy and delicious? This is one of those recipes that I make a LOT, and it’s so good I decided to share. You’ve probably made a variation of this at some point. I hope you like my version. This is not one of those recipes where you need exact measurements. Just eyeball it. This is a great comfort food dish in the winter months, and a great easy summer dish so you don’t have to heat up your kitchen! We like ours with a big tossed green salad and a scoop of my macaroni picnic salad.

 18 large chicken drumsticks

onion powder

garlic powder




about 20 oz. of your favorite BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray’s)

Place a layer of frozen or fresh drumsticks on the bottom of a large crock pot. Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour about 10 oz. of the barbecue sauce over the chicken. Drizzle with Sriracha. Repeat with another layer of chicken, seasonings and sauces. Cover crock pot. Set it on low and let it cook for about 8 hours, or until chicken is done to your liking!

    Did you take the skin off the chicken legs?

      Hi Terri 🙂 No, I didn’t. I find that if I take the skin off the chicken legs before cooking the drumsticks dry out. I do remove the skin before I eat them though.

    Useful information. Fortunate me I discovered your website unintentionally, and I am stunned why this twist of fate did not happened in advance! I bookmarked it.

    Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

      I use an original “Crock Pot” brand crock pot, Bren 🙂 It’s a 7 quart capacity, slow cooker. Hope that helps! thanks for visiting.

    Do you have the temperature and time if someone wants to make this in the oven? We are having a potluck at work tomorrow and I’d love to bring this.

      I’d probably just cook the drummies at 350 degrees F. on baking sheets… and then toss them with the bbq once they’re all the way cooked… probably 30 to 60 minutes. Enjoy!

    This looks great and I will to try. A question will the crockpot have a lot of juice in the bottom? Should you drain after a few hours?

      It does create a lot of juice, Linda 🙂 I’ve never drained these in the middle of cooking, but you certainly could.

    I would love to make this today while I am at work, however my drumsticks are still frozen. Should I wait till they thaw out to make them?? Or would them being frozen be ok?
