Tasty Tuesday – Crockpot Fried Chicken

I don’t use my crockpot nearly as much as I should. It’s such a pain to clean, but I love the convenience of throwing things in and having dinner ready later.

This is one of the easiest crockpot meals. I had some frozen chicken drumsticks from last week, so I threw them in and 4 hours later of no work, dinner was ready when my husband walked in the door.

I dredged the drumsticks in flour and spices first. It’s infinitely customizable, including how many you want to cook. I never do more than four at once, but you can do many more depending on the size of your cooker and how many people you have to feed.

Then pour on 1/4 cup of melted butter. Set it on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10. I was short on time, but four cook fast, so it was done in less than four hours.

The skin isn’t crispy, so this isn’t the best recipe for that, but it’s still delicious. I served it with the mashed potatoes I made and froze back in June. They surprisingly kept their texture and flavor.

      1. Steven was a bit skeptical at first but we both really enjoyed it! Plus easy clean up. I never would have thought I could just put drumsticks in the Crockpot like this


      2. It’s one of my favorite ways to cook ‘fried’ chicken and almost the only recipe I use when I have chicken legs. The meat just almost falls off the bone. Of course, the flour and butter don’t make it too healthy, but not deep frying has to give it points, right?
