  1. I will be using this recipe a lot, I have 3 older sons and a son-in-law, chicken legs are easy to eat. And with your sauce, they will be perfect!! The crockpot, double bonus.

  2. My biggest recent learning experience has been to realize that my new pots and pans new much less heat than the old ones. Lots of adjustments in the cooking temp and times. PS. Your chicken sounds fantastic!
