Jumbo Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

My husband says if we ever open a restaurant (which is not something we’re planning on doing ever) we should cook up chicken drumsticks like buffalo wings and serve them as jumbo wings. So, here is my first creation for his future restaurant.

As always, easy breezy ingredients and instructions:

4 lbs. of chicken drumsticks

18 oz of barbecue sauce

1/4 cup of honey

Frank’s red hot (I didn’t measure this, just shook the bottle a few times, obviously shake it more to make it spicy, less or not at all if you don’t like things hot.)

Remove the skin from the chicken and place in the crock pot. Next combine all other ingredients in a bowl. I recommend using 2 different barbecue sauces, 9 ounces of each, this gives it a more complex and interesting flavor. Pour mixture over chicken and cook on low for about 7 hours.

These were really yummy. And as usual I didn’t think to snap a picture, haha. So here’s a picture of some ingredients!




Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Months ago I wrote my first recipe blog post easy cheesey scalloped potatoes and ham, and this post is pretty much a variation of the same thing. But a variation that my hubby loves, so I figured, it’s worth another post.

1460597873818

Ingredients:

4-8 white potatoes (depending on the size of potatoes)

1 lb of ham steaks

1 onion

1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

10.5 ounces of golden mushroom condensed soup

Directions:

Poke a few holes in your potatoes and microwave them for 3 minutes. This will make them soft. Slice them, dice ham, dice onion. Mix all the ingredients in a crock pot and cook for 5 hours on high or 10 hours on low. We put pepper on it for seasoning too.




Bbq Cheddar Pork Roast

After the success of my other pork loin experiment, I thought I’d try something similar with a totally different flavor. Another easy crock pot success. All you need is:

  • 24 ounce pork loin
  • 10 ounce of baby carrots
  • 4 white potatoes
  • 10.75 ounce cream off cheddar soup
  • 1/4 cup bbq sauce
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic

Cube potatoes then put everything in a crock pot and cook on low about 9 hours. Stir occasionally if you’re home.

Easy Lemon Garlic Pork Roast

Recently I bought a pre-seasoned Hormel pork loin: lemon garlic flavored and made it into a crock pot roast. It was soooo yummy, I am upset I didn’t buy more while they were on sale. Here’s all you need:

24 oz lemon garlic pork loin

5 white potatoes

8 oz baby carrots

10.75 oz cream of cheddar soup

All you do is dice the potatoes, throw everything in the crock pot and cook on low 9 hours.

If you can’t find a preseason pork loin, try the above recipe but add a little lemon juice and garlic seasoning.



Easy Italian Chicken Drumsticks

I haven’t been using crock pot much lately and I’ve missed it. So I brought it out and tried something new with chicken drumsticks last night. And I think it was pretty tasty. And, per usual, easy. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4lbs of chicken drumsticks
  • 2/3 cup Italian dressing
  • 1/4 cup miracle whip
  • Italian seasoning
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic salt

In the morning place chicken in crock pot and mix dressing and miracle whip. Pour over the chicken and then sprinkle it with Italian seasoning, black pepper and salt. Refrigerate until 4 hours before dinner. Cook on high for 4 hours.

Sloppy Jose

A mexican spin on one of my favorite comfort foods!
1 lb ground turkey sprinkled with pepper and garlic salt
1 diced onion
8 oz of salsa
Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on high for 4 hours. Put on bread. (I put a slice of cheese on the bread. Because when don’t I add cheese to a meal?!)

My hubby also discovered that this makes good nachos. Put over tortilla chips with shredded cheese.



Sweet BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

In the middle of winter I miss the yummy summer time food. This crock pot recipe is the next best thing when the grill is covered with snow. 4 ingredients dumped into a crock pot for four hours. It doesn’t get much easier (or much more delicious)!

Put 4 pounds of chicken drumsticks (fully defrosted) in a crock pot. Cover with 2/3 cup of grape jelly, 2/3 cup of barbeque sauce and a tablespoon of sweet chili pepper sauce. Cook on high for four hours. Serve with your favorite summer time side dish.



Corny Chicken and Rice

Most of my recipes come from not having stuff in the house to make other people’s recipes. So I tend to just throw what I do have into a crock pot. This one turned out much better than other had expected, so I thought I’d share. Ingredients include:

  • 1/2 pound of chicken
  • 16 oz bag of frozen corn
  • 1/4 bottle of Italian dressing
  • 3 servings of minute rice
  • 1 spoonful of Dijon mustard
  • A few drops of Frank’s sweet chili sauce

Mix the first 3 ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 4 hours. Then make 3 servings of minute rice in the microwave, and mix the last 2 ingredients in with it. Put rice in the crock pot with the chicken and corn. Mix well and serve.

Orange BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

Here’s another super easy but super yummy crock pot recipe. All you need is:

  • 4 pounds of chicken drumsticks
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 cup of Orange marmalade
  • 1.5 cups of barbecue sauce

I defrost chicken overnight and salt and pepper the drumsticks in the morning. But if you don’t salt and pepper the drumsticks until you’re ready to do the other steps, that’s fine too. They just might not absorb the taste as much. I do recommend making sure chicken is fully defrosted before starting this recipe.

1. Place salt and peppered drumsticks in crock pot

2. Pour 1 cup of orange marmalade on top

3. Pour 1.5 cups barbecue sauce on top of that

4. Stir it all together so marmalade and barbecue sauce are mixed and drumsticks are coated in the mixture

5. Cook on high for 4 hours (if you are home move the chicken around every hour or so, this will help it cook in the sauce evenly.)

By the way, I saved the leftover sauce in the crock pot and cooked asparagus in it for a few hours the next day!
