Slow Cooker Sticky BBQ Drumsticks

Slow Cooker Sticky BBQ Drumsticks

Tonia Bloom
Chicken drumsticks are smothered in BBQ sauce and slow-cooked for tender juiciness. Finish the dish by broiling for a few minutes to get that crispy and sticky skin. Choose a low-sodium (2 tablespoons is 170mg) BBQ sauce like Schultz's Gourmet BBQ Sweet Hickory Sauce. This is a local Colorado company, but sometimes I can find it on Amazon.
