An easy dinner to put together and put into your slow cooker. Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Drumsticks is a great meal in a flash!
My husband and I love wings and anything buffalo. My kids do not! They will eat them with us if we get a sweeter – less spicy version so out of that came Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Drumsticks. We were trying to duplicate a wing sauce that comes from our favorite wing place in town that combines the sweet and spicy – I came pretty close!
So why didn’t I use wings? Well – you could! But, since I was using the slow cooker I figured that drumsticks would be a better choice – and they were delicious. You could definitely use any kind of chicken for this, but I liked using drumsticks since it’s a bit different (for us anyways). Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Drumsticks were a definite hit in our house!
A quick note – you can make these as hot and spicy as you want – or you can even make them more sweet. Just adjust the ratio of buffalo sauce to duck sauce (more buffalo is hot and more duck is sweet). I love simple dishes that are pure dump in the crock pot and walk away kind of dishes. That’s an easy meal and I need a bunch of those in my bag of tricks! Throw some veggies in the microwave (those steam bags are amazing) and I’m perfect! LOVE IT. What every busy family needs!
PS – Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Drumsticks make a perfect FREEZER MEAL!
