Sweet and Savory Country Chicken

This week I'm featuring a guest recipe from my friend, Johnny DeCarlo. A few weeks back, I posted a request for some slow cooker ideas on my Cucina Domenico Facebook group page. Johnny submitted this delicious recipe. Be sure to check it out.
Thanks agin for the suggestion, Johnny!


Begin by mixing the following ingredients together in the slow-cooker to make sauce
¾ of a bottle of KC MASTERPIECE bbq sauce
¾ of a bottle of ketchup
1 can of CENTO tomato paste
1 can of chicken broth (then 1 can of water)
½ a jar of GREY POUPON onion dijon
6 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons of ginger sauce
4 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of diced garlic
3 tablespoons of red wine
Spices (a hearty handful of salt, fresh cracked pepper, MC KORMICK steakhouse grinder spice, sugar, brown sugar)

Leave sauce on HIGH for a half hour to get warm, then add in a package of 8 large chicken drumsticks. Keep crockpot on HIGH and allow everything to cook for 6 hours. The sauce will thicken and absorb the juices from the chicken, and the drumsticks will become extremely tender. When ready to serve, arrange platter with boiled rice and drumsticks on top. Ladle out a nice amount of the sauce and pour it all over

Jar extra sauce to use next time. Also makes a nice marinade. This same recipe can be used to slow-cook pork chops and spare ribs

Serves 4-5
