Description

Practically dump and cook, these Slow Cooker Sweet Chili Chicken Drumsticks are full of Asian flavor and the slow cooker makes them easy as can be.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2” piece ginger root, (peeled and minced)
  • 45 lbs chicken drumsticks
  • fresh chopped cilantro, (for garnish)
  • toasted sesame seeds, (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Combine the soy sauce, Thai sweet chili sauce, fish sauce and ginger root in a large resealable container. Add the drumsticks and toss to coat. Place in the fridge and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 3 hours, up to overnight.
  2. When ready to cook the chicken, dump the chicken and the marinade into a 6-quart slow cooker. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, or on high for 3 hours.
  3. Turn on the broiler. Cover a baking sheet with foil and carefully transfer the chicken to the baking sheet. Brush with some of the remaining marinade and broil on high for 3 minutes on each side, flipping once and brushing with more sauce.
  4. Remove from the oven and garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired.
