This really tasty recipe will be a hit with the kids: the cinnamon adds a sweetness that they love. Serves 12
1 ½ kgchicken drumsticks
5-6 clovesgarlic, squashed with the flat of a knife
1 Tbspground cumin
1 Tbspground coriander
3-4 Tbspwhite wine, chicken stock or water
Place the butter in a large sauté pan over moderate heat. Brown the chicken drumsticks, flipping them carefully with tongs until they are nice and crispy.
Place chicken in a slow cooker. Add the squashed garlic, scattering it around the chicken.
Add onions to the sauté pan and cook until translucent. Add spices to the onions and sauté until fragrant. Scrape onion mixture over chicken in the crockpot.
Pour the chicken stock, white wine or water into the pan and deglaze it, scraping any bits off. Pour over the onion mixture and chicken.
Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW for 5-6 hours, checking to be sure that the chicken is cooked thoroughly.
Use a slotted spoon or spatula to dig the chicken out carefully; there will be quite a bit of liquid in the bottom of the crockpot and you’ll want to be sure you get the chicken legs out without them falling apart too much.
