My favorite meat is chicken. I love boneless skinless chicken breasts. My son however doesn’t like the white meat, his favorite is the drumsticks. I’m always looking for a good drumstick recipe so that he’s not always having to eat white meat. A few weeks ago I was blog hopping and found this recipe from way back in 2009 @ Creatively Domestic. When I saw this recipe for drumsticks I decided to make it.
Here’s the recipe:
2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. paprika
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
4 lbs. chicken drumsticks, skinned if desired
foil for crumpling up in crockpot
In a small bowl, thoroughly combine salt and all the spices.
Rinse drumsticks and pat dry with paper towel.
Rub the spice mixture into the chicken.
Crumple up foil and put in the bottom of a 4 quart crockpot.
Top the foil with the spice rubbed chicken pieces.
Cook on LOW for 8-12 hours until very tender.
(mine was perfect after 6 hours on Low)
In the middle of rubbing the spices on the chicken, I wasn’t sure I would have enough for all the drumsticks, but I did. Also, you can’t crumple the foil too small or the chicken will end up down in the juices, which is what you’re trying to avoid.
I took a picture of the foil balls laying in the bottom of the crock pot, and some of them on a plate after they were done, but couldn’t find them on my phone.
Thoughts: delicious! Even though I’m not a drumstick fan, the spices had a great flavor and we both loved them. I will be making this recipe again.
