Crockpot BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

My original plan was to make chicken wings in the oven. But with the ridiculously inflated prices on wings over the weekend, and the lack of oven, I opted to use a crockpot chicken wing recipe and sub drumsticks instead. We all agreed that drumsticks have more meat and are better than wings anyways. :)

I really liked this recipe - very easy but very tasty. The meat was falling off the bone tender!

Since the recipe calls for broiling beforehand, we threw the legs on the grill for about 10 minutes to crisp up the skin and then put them in the crockpot. I'd actually prefer this method even if my oven was working because you don't have to dirty an additional baking sheet!

Crockpot BBQ Chicken Drumsticks
3 lbs chicken wings or legs
1 -1 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Arrange the wings/legs on a baking sheet and broil for 10 minutes (turning once) until golden brown, or throw them on the grill for 10 minutes (turning once) until golden brown.

Place chicken in the crockpot.

Combine BBQ sauce, honey, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl, mix well, and pour over the chicken.

Cover and heat on low for 2-2.5 hours.



  1. This sounds really good! I'm going to try it tonight! Thank you for sharing it.

  2. Great recipe, and I have chicken legs on hand. Agree about the price of wings. Ridiculous.

  3. This looks so good! Now that our daughter came back home with 2 kids, this will be a great movie snack!! We love BBQ wings dipped in ranch dreessing.....then gonna have popcorn too!!!
