Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken Drumsticks
I have never had this dish in an Asian restaurant. Paul and I go to a few really great Asian restaurants, but I somehow missed a dish like this on their menus. Dark meat chicken in a sauce of wonderful garlic, ginger, balsamic vinegar, fish sauce, and honey. Then cooked all day in it!
Those flavors are a perfect marriage with chicken, and making this dish couldn’t be easier! Just put the chicken in the slow cooker, mix up the sauce and pour it over! Cook up a batch of rice to serve it over, because you don’t want any of the glorious sauce to go to waste!
What’s easier than putting your meal in a crock pot and letting it cook all day?
