Recipe for Chicken LegsRecipe For Chicken Legs

This Crockpot Recipe for Chicken Legs  I’m telling you people today, is a very easy and delicious dish! If you are one of those folks like me who love chicken legs, you are going to love this! Crockpot cooking just makes the meat fall off the bone and it is so tender!

Time to add the spices and do a little magic! Grab you a pack of chicken legs at the local grocery for as little as $3.00 or $4.00 and you can have a pot full of delicious legs in a short time!

Pair this with some sides like mashed potatoes, slaw, baked beans, etc and have a terrific meal for a very reasonable price without all the grease! Yummy, this is good!

I like a little spice but not too much! Spices are as optional as clothing. You can put on as much as you want or go with the bare necessities! Like it hot? Add you some hot sauces! Like it mild, lay off that hot stuff!  It’s your meal; fix it the way you like.

As always, this Recipe for Crockpot Chicken Legs can be changed to your liking by the spices you add or omit!
