Mama's Story

Made this a lot at one time when I caught the chicken leg quarters on sale.


chicken leg quarters
bottle bbq sauce (your choice)
(season to taste)

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash and season leg quarters lightly (because BBQ sauce will be salty). Place in crockpot with largest legs at the bottom; smaller legs at the top. Do not add water (I sprinkle a little minced onion on top of mine). Place top on crockpot and cook 5 hours on HIGH. Pour off broth. Cover chicken with barbecue sauce and cook on LOW about 15 more minutes. Turn off crockpot.
(I use an oval 6qt. crock pot)

Do you take off the skin before putting it in the crockpot?

I used some still mostly frozen chicken leg quarters. Washed them and stuck them in the crockpot It still only took about 5 hours to cook. I'm amazed.
