SLOW COOKER HONEY-SOY CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 8 chicken drumsticks (2 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

DIRECTIONS

  1. Coat a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine honey, orange zest, orange juice, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, vinegar, crushed red pepper, and sesame seeds.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Season chicken with a little salt and pepper; sauté for about 3 minutes per side, until they have a golden crust. Transfer to the slow cooker along with the sauce mixture.
  4. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  5. Transfer the drumsticks to a bowl. Very carefully pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a medium skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until reduced and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour the sauce over the drumsticks and stir to coat. Serve, sprinkled with parsley.
