Did you know you can buy 14 chicken drumsticks for $5?? I sure didn’t. (I ate one before I took the picture…). I was so shocked for the price I had to pay for the amount of chicken I was getting. I usually buy the chicken breast in packs of 3 for roughly 6-7 dollars. I just wanted to share the wealth and make that announcement for you all.
Anyways, these drumsticks turned out to be absolutely amazing and very simple to make. Its another crockpot recipe that does most the work for you. To make these wings all you need is:
- Chicken Drumsticks
- 1 tsp Garlic powder
- 1 tsp Onion powder
- 1 tsp Black pepper
- 1 tsp Chili powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Smoked paprika
- Barbecue Sauce (your choice)
Once you get the drumsticks out of the packaging you need to rub them down with all the spices listed above. Once you are done with that, throw them in the crockpot and let them cook on high for 3-5 hours, depending on how many wings you have. I cooked 14 of them for 4 hours. After they are done cooking in the crockpot you need to brush on the barbecue sauce. Make sure you use quite a bit to really let the flavor set in.
Once you have brushed on the barbecue sauce you need to place them on an oven tray and set the oven to broil. Broil the drumsticks for 4-6 minutes only. You need to be careful and make sure you don’t burn the barbecue sauce you layered on the wings. The broil allows the drumsticks to get a little crispy and dry up that barbecue so they aren’t drenched in sauce. Once you have done all of those steps, enjoy!
The best thing about this meal is how little I spent to get it. I already had all of the spices and all I needed was the chicken. 14 drumsticks for $5, I still can’t get over that. You can easily make 3-4 meals with this amount of chicken for just $5. It ended up to be absolutely delicious and cheap. What more can you ask?
Hope y’all enjoyed!
