I love a complete meal in my slow cooker, that’s why I love this recipe for Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken and Ranch Potatoes!
In a glass bowl, I tossed red potatoes together with olive oil, and some dry ranch mix, then I put the entire glass bowl right into my slow cooker (I used a pampered chef small batter bowl). I then put the chicken drumsticks that I browned, into the slow cooker, right next to the bowl of potatoes, then I added some Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce, and a little water, I cooked this on High for 4 hours.
The house smelled so good while this was cooking. I could barely wait! Chicken Drummies are such a kid-friendly meal, my little one loved it!
