To keep costs at a relatively reasonable rate, my family and I try to eat in while on vacation. This can be hard when we all have different plans and guests over and whatnot. Especially when we’re on the beach all day.
So, this recipe was put to use this week to feed a bunch of people as they came and went. Since it’s a slow cooker, I was able to start it up before I headed down to the beach and come back with it almost complete.
Plus, it wasn’t too laborious on my arm (still getting used to the cast!)
Oh, and another thing I loved about this? You get a side dish of BBQ apples and onions, a combination that tastes surprising good together!
4 lbs organic chicken drumsticks
2 cup BBQ sauce (I used Bill’s Best Organic BBQ Sauce)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 onions, chopped
2 apples, peeled and cut into 1 inch-cubed pieces
4 garlic cloves, minced
Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker (don’t worry if it’s filled to the top- it’ll shrink as it cooks.) Put on low and let cook for 5 hours. Remove chicken. With a slotted spoon, scoop up remaining onions and apples, drain of excess sauce, and place in its own bowl to serve as a side dish.
