Hunan Flavored Drumsticks

5:38 AM

For dinner tonight we had another crock pot meal - it makes busy week nights a little easier to manage. I found this recipe on a WW board, so there's a clue that this dish isn't too bad for the figure (now all the cupcakes and cookies and brownies I've been making...that's another story!). I really liked these chicken legs - the flavor wasn't very exotic or fancy or anything like that, but it was a nice combination of flavors for these skinless legs. My chicken turned out dry, but I always blame my crock pot, it burns/dries food out all the time and its time for an upgrade. My husband helped himself to a second serving, and Thing Two didn't break out the ketchup to dip these in, so they seemed to like it as well. I'll be making these again!

Hunan Flavored Drumsticks
Serves 4-6

1/2 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
garlic powder, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
five-spice powder, to taste
12 chicken legs, skinless

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a bowl. Dip each drumstick in sauce and place in crock pot. Pour remaining sauce over the top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
