  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 chicken drumsticks (about 1 pound total), skinned*
  • 1/2 cup bottled picante sauce
  • 2 teaspoons bottled cayenne pepper sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot) or 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
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.


  • *Test Kitchen 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.
