Slow Cooker Sticky Garlic Chicken

Budget Meals For Families, Slow Cooker Chicken Recipes February 13, 2018

This was an experiment where I threw things into the slow cooker, hoping for something resembling Asian cuisine and was surprised by how well it turned out; especially considering I had no soy sauce. It’s a really easy and cheap meal, with few ingredients that you could eat in lots of different ways. I made it with sticky rice and fried vegetables, but you could also eat it with noodles, potatoes, steamed vegetables, fried rice, etc.

I used chicken drumsticks that I had already cooked the day before, but if you’re using raw chicken, you could just sear the outsides before adding to the slow cooker and increase the cooking time to 8 hours/heat to high for 5. I bought chicken drumsticks for £1, so this recipe cost about £1.50 in total to make.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

8 Cooked Chicken Drumsticks

Pinch of salt

Pinch of black pepper

Pinch of garlic powder

4 cloves of garlic

1 1/2 tbsps honey

2 1/2 tbsps rice wine vinegar

2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce (Or soy sauce)

200ml chicken stock

1 heaped tbsp cornflour dissolved in cold water

Directions:

Put chicken legs in slow cooker and season generously. Add crushed garlic, honey, rice wine vinegar, Worcester sauce and chicken stock. Mix well.

Cook on low for 5 hours. You might want to change to high for the final hour just to crisp up the outsides and cook down the sauce.

At the end, add the cornflour, mixed well into about half a cup of cold water. Whisk the sauce as you stir it in to prevent lumps.

This makes a thick, sweet sauce that should cook down a lot and leaves more of a glaze on the chicken than a large volume of liquid.
