Very easy to throw together and absolutely delicious! Even got the comment “this was yum!!” by my fussy eater.

No. Never slow cook from frozen. Here’s why

Could you put frozen drumsticks in? How much extra cooking time would you need?

We serve ours with mash and our fave steamed veg. Rice or even chips would be nice too if you prefer that 🙂

What do you serve this with?

Either or is fine 🙂

Cooked this for dinner tonight & hubby & kids loved it, will definitely be making again. I did brown the chicken first & cooked on high for 2 hours then low for an hour & meat just fell off the bone..

Made these for the family, this is a keeper, next time will use thighs. Not a fan of drumsticks but still very yummy.
Thank you for the recipe

Sooooooo good, used thigh instead and thickened sauce with cornflour and water mix. A definate regular recipe for us, thanks

Sure you can. I prefer to slow cook with thigh fillets as they tend to be less dry than breast but by all means this recipe will adapt to any chicken cut you prefer 🙂

can I use whole chicken breasts as we dont eat drumsticks. thanks

Very easy and tasty 😊 We all enjoyed it, including my 3 year old. Served it with mashed potato and steamed vegies.
The sauce was a little watery so I removed the drumsticks and kept them warm, to thicken the sauce with a bit of cornflour and water. Will definitely make these again!

No I’ll always say so if you need to 🙂

Do you sear the chicken first?

You could try? Just be sure the chicken is cooked through and the sauce doesn’t burn
