Several nights a week, I use a crock pot to make our dinner.
With the kids’ activities, we eat our dinners late… and when we arrive home we want to eat right away – no waiting around for something to finish cooking.
Even in the summertime, I utilize a crockpot, because on hot days I don’t want pots boiling and the oven going. We’ve had to start getting creative with making different meals, because it’s easy to get bored with the same old crock pot go to recipes.
This meal has become one of our favorites. It’s easy to throw over rice to make it nice and filling, but we also like to pair it with veggies to keep it lighter.
The original version of this recipe called for soy sauce. Our family doesn’t eat much soy, so we’ve made the switch to coconut amino acids. You can easily swap those out for classic soy sauce if that’s your preference.
1 pound chicken drum sticks
2 cups coconut aminos
1 cup water
1 tablespoon powdered ginger or two tablespoons fresh grated ginger
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon powdered garlic or 2 tablespoons fresh grated garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Put everything in a crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for four hours. Serve it up with the sides of your choosing and enjoy!
