We like to have healthier chicken recipe options when menu planning and this one is a favorite. In the summer it's great paired with rice, fresh cucumbers, sliced tomatoes or this Squash, Zucchini and Tomato Casserole.

In the fall and winter months we like to serve it with sweet potatoes and Southern Green Beans for the perfect comfort food meal. It makes a simple easy dinner.

Chicken drumsticks are inexpensive so they are a budget friendly meal option. And they are kid friendly. Making them in the slow cooker saves time and provides tender flavorful drumsticks. So don't expect any leftovers!

I like to stock up on packs of chicken legs when they are on sale and freeze them. There are so many great inexpensive meals you can make with them.

How do I make these slow cooker drumsticks crispy?

If you prefer your drumsticks a little crispy around the edges you can place them in the oven before serving.

All you need to do is place the drumsticks on a baking sheet and that is lined with foil and broil for 2 to 3 minutes until it start to brown. You can flip them over and brown the other side if you want both side crispy. Just be sure and keep an eye on them so they don't burn!
