Crock Pot Buffalo Wing Drumsticks

I’ve recently started price-matching at Wal-Mart and have found it saves us a good chunk of change on groceries.  I tried couponing for a couple of months and failed miserably at it.  Price-matching is so much easier and doesn’t take near the amount of time and effort that couponing does.   

A good friend of mine just started a price-matching blog for Utah County, Penny Saver, making it even easier to find all of the best prices! Last week, I bought chicken drumsticks for 79 cents a pound!

Normally, I’d make my Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Drummies because they are so stinkin’ easy and the chicken practically falls off the bone. This time to change it up a little I used Buffalo Wing Sauce, just for my hubby.  I had a little Mary Kay party at my house last week and figured while we got pampered he’d appreciate some spicy, messy, man food! 
Crock Pot Buffalo Wing Drumsticks
6-8 chicken drumsticks, thawed and skins removed
1-2 cups Wing Sauce like Frank’s Red Hot
Salt and pepper
Remove skin from chicken drumsticks.  I have found the easiest way to do this is hold a paper towel in one and and use it to pull the skin off the chicken. 
Place chicken in crock pot, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and pour about 3/4 cup to 1 cup of wing sauce over the chicken.  Cook on high for 3-4 hours.  
Place chicken in a bowl and toss with more wing sauce before serving if desired.

    Now, I would love this dish, but recently my hubby said I really only like wing sauce on “traditional” wings. Hmmm….so since these are “big” wings, maybe he’d eat them???

    Wow, why did I never think of wing sauce in a crock pot? I’ll have to check if drumsticks are acceptable or if they’d have to be wings, but, wow. I don’t like hot sauce or wings, so my husband occasionally makes them himself. I know he’d like to eat them more often, and I can handle this amount of work for something I’m not going to eat. I can totally leave these in the crock pot when I’m going to be gone one evening. I think he’ll love me more if I do this!

    I made these for my hubby last night. I only eat white meat so these were perfect for a no cook meal on a night when he works late and its just him eating anyways. He really liked them and actually asked for them again tonight when he has some friends over for a game! Thank you!

    I agree with chosing drumsticks over wings which, while delicious, are over-popular and overpriced nowadays. But even though it’s messier, do this right and parboil the drumsticks in salt water (keep the skin on) for about 10 minutes. Remove from water and dredge in flour or rice flour and deep fry in canola oil for another 15 minutes. Then you cover them with whatever sauce you want. Nothing beats the tenderness of the meat along with the crispiness of the skin when you do them this way.
