I love my slow cooker, it has saved me on many a nights when my family has to run in 3 different directions. I put dinner in the slow cooker in the afternoon and when we all come back at night we are ready to sit down for a family meal. Best. Invention. EVER! I knew when I saw these Sticky Chicken Drumsticks at Farmgirl Gourmet I had to add them to my dinner rotation. If your house is anything like ours, you can’t go wrong with chicken.
