Aside from the chicken wing (which is considered by many to be the undisputed ruler of consumed chicken parts), the drumstick/leg is arguably the most recognizable and desirable part of the chicken. Due to the chicken leg's meatiness and its grab-it-and-bite factor, it's become a favorite chow-down-worthy food, whether fried or baked.
While many naturally gravitate toward a drumstick cooked on the grill or battered and deep-fried, the drumstick actually takes quite well to a variety of cooking methods. One such method, which is very easy, is cooking the bird part in the slow cooker. In this simple yet great recipe, just a few store-bought ingredients give the chicken some flavor while the bulk of the work is done by the slow cooker.
