  • 4 lbs. chicken drumsticks
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 oz. Ranch dressing mix
  • 1 cup Frank's Red Hot
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, melted

Slow Cooker Size:

  • 6 quart or larger


  • Remove the skin from the drumsticks. I do this by pulling the skin as far down as I can, then when I can pull any further I grab onto the skin with a paper towel and the skin usually comes right off. I did have to cut the skin off of a few.
  • Place the chicken into the slow cooker. Sprinkle over the garlic, cayenne, pepper, and ranch dressing mix. Pour over the Frank's Red Hot and the melted butter. Stir. 
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on HIGH for 4 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
