Dude, Sweet. It’s more simple than your normal posts, but looks great, with plenty of room to customize! +1 for the old-as-hell joker reference! Honestly, though… I refuse to believe that Michael Keaton was EVER a good choice to be batman. Your thoughts???
I work nights, so I will frequently get home in the morning, throw something in the crockpot, then let it cook while I sleep. Then when I wake up, dinner (..breakfast?) is ready. I’ll definitely try this out. Keep the crockpot recipes coming!
Great crock pot recipe. I use mine all the time so I don’t heat up the house here in the summer, and so I have time to game on the computer. As to removing the skin that someone asked. Because the crock pot cooks so slow and long meat generally won’t get dried out (hence the reason it’s actually better to use cheaper cuts of meat). So the skin on there will usually just render off and leave a layer of gunk on top of that lovely sauce. Not so attractive I think.
This chicken was fantastic, i ended up forgetting to buy brown sugar while I was out so I went with a spicy direction and added a bit of hot sauce. It was still good, but im definitely going to try your sauce recipe. Slowly I’m learning to cook from your site.
Tried this out, probably the first recipe here I won’t make again without some experimentation. Nothing wrong with it – it’s just chicken slow-cooked in a sauce – but found the sauce a bit underwhelming. Nothing wrong, but nothing that made me say “oh man this is amazing I have to make this again.” Need to think about what other sauces would be good.
Also, I had one hell of a time trying to get the skin off the chicken. Putting it under cold water helped separate it from the thick part of the drumstick, but the skin was really stuck on the “ankle”. Any tips there? I ended up using scissors and even then it was pain. Don’t really like tugging on chicken skin as hard as I can while holding an uncooked chicken leg in my other hand, worrying it’ll slip and shoot across the room.
I don’t have a crock pot. I have this in the oven right now at 250F for 6hrs. Been in for 3.5hrs and is at a very very low simmer. Might need to turn down the oven in a bit to make sure it doesn’t boil. Smells great, super excited.
I doubled the recipe and used 1 package of drumsticks and 1 pack of thighs. I also threw in a splash of liquid smoke and I had 1/2 cup of salsa left so I threw that in for some heat.
I just finished cooking this and the sauce is super watery. I used bone in chicken thighs instead of drum sticks and the texture is good, but the taste isn’t very concentrated. My chicken was thawed when I put it into the crock pot also. So, I don’t think the chicken was holding water when I placed it into the crock pot. I’m not exactly sure what went wrong. I doubt that you prefer bland chicken. Oh well, I am going to put the sauce on a pan and reduce it and drizzle over the chicken. I’ll definitely try this recipe again, but switch it up a bit to see if I get better results.
This is a super easy recipe, the hardest part was pulling off the skins on the chicken. I added balsamic vinegar, hoisin, mirin sweet rice seasoning, and a tiny splash of sherry and fish sauce. it smelled good when i put it in the pot so im hoping it comes out pretty yummy. there wasn’t a whole lot of sauce so i added about a can of water just to cover the chicken with liquid. 8 hours till chicken goodness
I don’t own a crockpot, can anyone give me some advice on how long to bake it in the the oven for and at what temperature? Also, I’m feeding six people, is this recipe going to be enough or should I add more ingredients? Thanks in advance guys.
Assembled this tonight, will cook while wife is at work. We’ve got some oriental vegetables and noodles to go with it. The sauce smelled so good, I took strong heed of the tip to not drool in the pot. Had to leave, haha.
Made the chicken a while back … But just went a new direction with it tonight, felt like sharing.
I doubled the sauce part, added a couple extra drumsticks, then tossed in a handful of sliced carrots, celery, light red kidney beans, and onion. Towards the end of the 8 hours, whipped up some basic rice … Chicken was still amazing, and I tossed the veggie stew on the rice.
I have made this numerous times now, and even though I never make it the same way twice, it always tastes DELICIOUS… plus a little sri racha never hurt anyone!!! An amazing recipe and I have shared it with tons of friends. Always turns out perfectly in both crock pot and oven! THANK YOU!
