Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Legs

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Legs
Sadly summer is coming to an end with the fast approaching Labor Day just one week away. We will be having a lot of family over so I decided to experiment on a slow cooker dish that is fun and not labor intensive. Yes, we have a winner! 

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Legs
1 large package of chicken legs

Barbecue Sauce
4 garlic cloves minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1 Tbs butter
1/2 cup water
3 Tbs cider vinegar
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1/2 lemon juiced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbs smoked paprika
1 Tbs cinnamon
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1 cup orange juice
salt & pepper

Heat the butter in a cast iron skillet. Add the garlic and onions and cook until they begin to caramelize. Begin to add the rest of the ingredients and stir; cooking for about 10 minutes.

Place the chicken legs in your slow cooker and cover with half the barbecue sauce. Add 1/2 cup of water and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours. When the chicken is done, place in a single layer on a sheet pan and place under the broiler for eight minutes until the chicken caramelizes. Serve with a side of cucumber salad… Delicious!

Enjoy!
