Looking for a way to spice up your chicken? Look no further! These spiced chicken drumsticks are the perfect way to ramp up any meal and thanks to the slow cooker, they are incredibly easy to prepare.
Lightly coat an unheated 3- or 3 1/2-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom of the cooker. In a small bowl combine picante sauce, pepper sauce, paprika, thyme and bay leaf. Spoon over chicken in cooker.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 hours.
Transfer chicken pieces to a serving bowl. Remove bay leaf from sauce in cooker; stir in the oil. Spoon sauce evenly over the chicken. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes to absorb flavors. To serve, spoon 1 teaspoon sauce over each drumstick. Discard remaining sauce.
Tip: To remove the chicken skin easily, use a paper towel to help grab the skin. If you use your fingers, the skin is very slippery and difficult to grab.
