Wow, just 7 hours at low with salt and pepper. My life is changed forever.

Hail Lord Crock-Pot!

Literally the most amazingly flaky chicken falling off the bone!

7 hours, one layer, skin side up, liberally salted and peppered and then just left to be for 7 hours et voila!

Wow, just 7 hours at low with salt and pepper. My life is changed forever. Hail Lord Crock-Pot!This has changed everything.

Okay, now all my chicken drumsticks are going in for their 7-hour Crock-Pot sauna – they’ll be ready in the morning.

Getting my crock on!

I am so excited about sorting out crock-pot chicken cooking.

And I am psyched about having the perfect way of preparing dark meat drumstick and thigh meat.

Those skin-on, bone-in, pieces are cheaper, better-tasting, and make it so much easier.

Leave all the breast meat for the paleo yuppies and gym monkeys.

It was so easy the first time through that I just quickly cleaned the slow-cooker’s inner bowl and popped in a single layer of drumsticks.

All this chicken has been sitting frozen in my freezer for months — I didn’t know what to do with it as I am generally a breast man — but now I have a completely fool proof solution.

So excited! And I tasted some with just the salt and the pepper?

It’s so good just on its own.

How did it taste?

Slow-cooked Crock-Pot chicken and white rice with drippingsThe chicken fell off the bone. There’s a lot of liquid left in the bottom. The thighs didn’t stay intact, they all broke apart like pulled chicken. There’s only salt and pepper but the meat tastes a lot like rotisserie chicken. And it’s made dark meat chicken as edible and delicious for me, who someone’s find dark meat chicken either a little undercooked or tendony.

It’s perfect. So awesome!

The only thing I might do is put in whole cloves of garlic in with it and maybe small onions or shallots. That could be awesome. 

Next time for sure.
