Anyone with kids knows that any meal that can be eaten with your fingers is a win. This why these crock pot chicken legs were a hit at our house the other night. This last-resort crock pot chicken legs recipe is by far one of our favorite recipes so far in the Gooseberry Patch Slow Cooking All Year 'Round Cookbook.
Last-Resort Crock Pot Chicken Legs
The chicken legs were, of course, frozen and were frozen till about 10 minutes prior to me starting to make this recipe.
I did a partial defrost in the microwave and then placed them in a deep skillet. Hit with salt and pepper.
Now, my friend Cris told me she popped the legs in the broiler to crisp up the skin. Which is brilliant because the skin was just pulled off by all of us and tossed. Crispy skin would make this a complete home run!
