Crockpot (slow cooker) delightful chicken.

So you hate cooking at night after a hard days work. OK the, just prepare this one either night before you go to bed (it only takes a few minutes to chuck into the slow cooker) or do the same in the morning before you go to work. If you do get it ready at night, just stick it in the fridge and take it out and turn it onto low before you leave for  the slave pits.
Take any number of chicken drumsticks (skin on or off is your choice). Place them in the slow cooker. Chuck in a spoonful of ginger (fresh or from jar, doesn't matter) the same of chilli, lime juice. soy sauce and a small can of coconut milk. If you have lemon grass (yes, I grow my own) put a stem that you have crushed in to the mix. Turn it on at the lowest setting and forget about it until you get home. It won't overcook although the longer you leave it the more likely it is to fall to pieces. that doesn't affect the taste one bit. If you are making larger quantities, just increase the ingredients. I liked it so much, I can feel it coming on for my Xmas dinner when I hope to have a few people over.
Give it a try and let me know how it worked. Your bank balance will love you when you have good home cooked meals.
