Wow, I am not sure I could get use to this blogging every day, but it has been a great challenge and I hope you have been enjoying the inspiration. I talked yesterday about how the first thing that always came to my mind when I thought about crockpot dishes was meat. The other thing that comes to my mind is quantity. For me cooking in the crockpot always meant a lot of food, which can sometimes be good. But if you are anything like me you don’t normally like your cooking to result in ‘extras’ because either the leftovers go into the fridge and get forgotten about and thus waste money or worse there are no leftovers because you ate them all in one go. And when the meal is something as amazing as Chinese drumsticks how could you not? But I wasn’t really sure how well it would work out to cook in the crockpot with smaller portions, I was worried the amounts wouldn’t come out right. But it did and this has completely opened a new idea of what cooking in the crockpot can mean to me.
Crockpot Chinese Drumsticks
4 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 Tbsp chili sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp golden syrup
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
In a small bowl mix other ingredients. (except cornstarch and water)
Place chicken in bottom of crock pot and pour sauce over.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. To thicken sauce, mix cornstarch with cold water and mix in during last 15 minutes.
Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. But this was perfect for Chris and I with one drumstick going to Morgan. It did have a lot of sodium in the recipe so I only let her have one with her dinner, which didn’t matter because she loved the rice more.
Don’t forget to check out my 3 foodie friend’s fabulous recipes for today’s challenge. And come back tomorrow for your chance to win your own CrockPot! Sorry only available to US residents.
