A Dinner Recipe So Easy Your Kids Can Make It?
Yep. And just to prove how easy this chicken recipe is, we got our 13 year old to do this one by himself.
Start out by seasoning these Crock Pot Sticky Chicken Legs with a chicken rub. You can grab your favorite dry rub right at the grocery store for this chicken recipe.
Next it’s time for the sauce. We started with one of our favorite BBQ sauces, but garb whatever you like! Then we added honey and teriyaki sauce and just mixed it together…
Pour the sauce all over the chicken legs. Make sure if your chicken legs aren’t in a single layer that you toss to coat them in the sauce.
Cover and set your slow cooker on low for 6 hours. It couldn’t get much easier than that! If you’ve only got 4 hours, set it on high heat instead.
AND if you need more time you can go up to 8 hours on low but the chicken will fall off the bone more than if you shut it off at 6 hours. Either way get in there and grab one!
