What I love about these slow cooker honey garlic chicken legs is they are simple to make and use basic ingredients you might already have in your pantry.
Simply take a small bowl and add in all the seasonings, and then generously season the chicken legs.
Pour in your chicken broth, and put your chicken on top.
Once you have your honey garlic sauce ready simply pour it over the chicken legs in the slow cooker. Then set to low and cook for 5-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked through.
Once the chicken is done pull it out and mix together the water and cornstarch, and then put back in the slow cooker bowl. Add your chicken and cook for an additional 20 minutes on high, to thicken your sauce.
Serve with rice or whatever sides you like and you have a tasty dinner ready to go.
