I like to keep chicken drumsticks on hand at all times.  I buy them in bulk when they go on sale for less than a dollar a pound.  I peel the skin off and freeze them individually so that when I am ready to cook, I can just pull out however many I need.  I keep them on hand for days when I don't have a meal planned for whatever reason, or I need something easier or faster than what was planned because something came up.  I like to throw them in the slow cooker, topped with a sauce of some kind.  I have a few different sauces, and this is one of my favorite.  I got it from Taste of Home.

Slow Cooker Soy Garlic Drumsticks

8 chicken drumsticks, skinned
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 tbsp cornstarch

Place chicken in slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, and garlic; pour over chicken. Toss chicken to coat.  Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.

Remove chicken from slow cooker and set aside.  Pour cooking liquid out into a small saucepan.  Add cornstarch to a small amount of cold water and stir.  Pour into the cooking liquid.  Bring to a boil until thickened.  Place chicken and cooking liquid back into slow cooker and cook for another hour or until chicken is tender.

Makes 4 servings.

The original recipe didn't call for thickening the cooking liquid, but I really like doing that.  It makes the sauce cling to the chicken better and it's really good drizzled over the rice.

This is one of my go-to easy dinners.  And it's great in the summer because I don't have to heat up the kitchen by turning on the oven.  Just a good recipe to have in your arsenal, so to speak!
