Crock Pot Roasted Chicken Legs

I am sharing this recipe at The Weekend Pot Luck.
Lots of great recipes there.

 Me and crock pots usually battle when it comes to preparing food.
My thoughts on the crock pot are:
mushy food
waste of time
I can cook my meals quicker

Why do I doubt the crock pot so bad?
The only bad thing that I deal with in a crock pot is pasta.
I never have luck with pasta dishes when they are prepared
by the crock pot.

When I ran across this roasted chicken recipe at The Midnight Baker 
I had my doubts.
There is no way a crock pot, slow cooker can roast chicken.
I did what any normal food blogger would do
and put the crock pot to the challenge.
You are going to fail again my enemy friend.......
But guess who ended up being the fool?
I will for sure make this again and again.
 I used some the best creole seasoning you can find.
Tony's is the best there is.
Tip * Creole seasoning is spicy.
If you feel you need to cut back on the amount you can.
 All you do is mix together
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 TBS creole seasoning
I rolled and squeezed the seasonings onto 5 chicken legs.
 They are supposed to lay flat in the bottom of a slow cooker.
I had to use two cookers because my crock pots are old antique out dated.
I don't have one of the fancy smancy oval ones with the removable crock.....
If you read this?
I would really like a fancy smancy crock pot.

But anyway....
Cook the chicken legs on high for 4-5 hours,
or until the juices run clear.
I did not let mine go past 5 hours.
Actually mine was more like 4 1/2 hours.
To serve with the roasted chicken legs, 
which is very good by the way, and roasted red potatoes.
If you are not a Schwan's customer you might want to look
into becoming one. 
They have a lot of great food.

See ya'all soon


  1. I've only had a couple of things turn out in my crock pot as well. I'm going to give this a shot because it looks VERY tasty! Thanks for the inspiration :)

    1. Don't forget, creole seasoning is on the spicy side. Maybe I should place that info in my post?
