I must say that I was extremely wary of this recipe. I have tried those easy crockpot recipes containing chicken and a few other ingredients, and ended up sending it right down the drain. This recipe was quite a pleasant surprise. I followed the recipe as I found it online, for the most part, although I did give it a hearty sprinkling of Montreal chicken seasoning as well as a few gratings of freshly ground black pepper. I cooked mine on low for four hours, and then cranked up the heat to high for that last hour. That seemed to work out perfectly.
3 – 3.5 lb. chicken drumsticks
Montreal Chicken Seasoning
1 c. jam jelly, or preserves (I used peach)
½ c. ketchup
1/3 c. soy sauce
2 t. Melissa’s minced garlic
Place the chicken legs in the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle with copious amounts of chicken seasoning and freshly ground black pepper.
In a small bowl place jam, ketchup, soy sauce, and garlic. Mix to combine well. Pour the sauce over the chicken legs.
Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours and then high for one hour. Enjoy. These chicken legs reheat beautifully, and the flavor intensifies overnight in the fridge.
