Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Drummers and Veggies – Chicken drumsticks slow cooked and tossed with teriyaki sauce with zucchini and carrots stir-fried in sauce.Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Drummers and Vegetables ~ The Complete SavoristWhat do you do when your market has a 6-pack of drummers for $1.98 and your friend gave you 4 cups of homemade gluten free teriyaki sauce? You toss them in a slow cooker and then dinner is on its way to being done. I thought fresh from the garden carrots and zucchini sautéed with some more of the teriyaki sauce would compliment the drummers completely. I was right. The dinner was simple and yet utterly satisfying, well, for the adults anyway.

My friend Bob and his two girls were over for dinner. His eldest daughter didn’t like anything but she was under the weather. His youngest daughter loved the chicken and ate some veggies but they weren’t her favorite (and they were from her garden). My daughter ate one carrot and one zucchini and called the veggies done. Now, the drumstick was an entirely different experience for her. Let me first explain that as a parent, where chicken drummers are concerned, I am a failure.

This was her FIRST drumstick EVER. Growing up, that was the piece given to us kids. How fun they were to eat back then. My siblings, cousins, and I would be at our grandparents’ dinner table and those drummers might be mock guns, swords for pirate battling, any weapon really before we actually ate them. But this day in age, with chicken breasts being all the rage and my love for thighs because of their perfect portion size, I have never served her a drumstick. Oh and I have never purchased a bucket of chicken from the Colonel either for her to have enjoyed one that way. See, parental failure.

Then she loved it. Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Drummers and Veggies, but maybe off the bone will definitely be made again soon.

I wish I could guarantee everyone will love the dish, but apparently vegetables are not palatable to youngsters.

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

Notes

I used homemade teriyaki sauce which was made with tamari instead of soy sauce. Teriyaki sauces and glazes contain gluten unless the bottle indicates otherwise.

    August 4, 2015 at 8:03 am Love slow cooker recipes like this one that yield a piece of chicken with glaze, not soupy sauce. And love that you did this with veggies, making use of the liquid from the slow cooker.

    August 4, 2015 at 10:17 am Kids! My kids love pretty much all veggies and have since they were little. My sister in laws kids...well, lets just say veggies seem to be torture. I feel like I am pretty lucky. We haven't served a lot of drumsticks either! These look great though!

    August 10, 2015 at 9:48 am Lol! Your daughter reminds me of mine when she was little with comments like "this is freaking me out!" When she got to be a teen she never ate meat again! The rest of the family is a different story. These would be gone in no time! Love the flavor of teriyaki!
    • Michelle
      August 10, 2015 at 11:07 am I don't see mine becoming a vegetarian, she just hasn't really had to ever deal with meat with the bones still in. Meat is her pick over anything, even her beloved mac n cheese. But if that ends up being her choice, it will be fine.
