These Slow Cooker Greek Drumsticks have so much flavor and are fall off the bone good!
This Greek chicken turned out great. The chicken can be marinated over night in a ziplock bag with the yogurt marinade or it can be popped directly into the slow cooker the same day. Since the slow cooker heats up slowly, the chicken gets a bit of time to soak up the Greek flavors of the marinade.
The marinade has yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, oregano, parsley and salt and pepper. This recipe has all natural simple ingredients but has so much flavor.
Below is the chicken after cooking in the slow cooker but I also put the chicken under the broiler in the oven to get the skin crispy.
This was a great recipe, the Greek flavors were great on the drumsticks. It was a great recipe my whole family enjoyed which is always nice. I hope you have a great week.
