Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Legs
It’s a sad fact that the more frugal and flavorful cuts of chicken, such as legs and thighs are often overlooked by the ever popular breast. I’m here to say, however that you should be giving these cuts a try! Not only do they save you money, but they’re also full of flavor. Plus, you can use the bones to make your own rich and nutrient dense chicken broth, saving you even more money.
If you’re one to reach for chicken breasts time after time, then I would encourage you to give legs (or thighs or wings) a chance! I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Plus, you can stock up when they are on sale for really cheap (such as .49/lb) and freeze them for later. It’s really a win/win.
I know you’re going to love this simple and frugal recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken Legs. If you don’t have legs on hand you can definitely substitute any cut of chicken that you might have. For the most flavor, I normally pull the meat from the bone before serving and pour several tablespoons of the flavorful juices on top.
How to Make Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken Legs:
Place chicken legs in slow cooker.
Mix all other ingredients in small bowl.
