The easiest dinner you just throw in your slow cooker. These Slow Cooker BBQ Ranch Chicken Legs are simple to make and full of flavor and a recipe you are going to love.
This recipe is a favorite of mine for many recipes, 1. the slow cooker and 2. the chicken legs. These two combined make for a super simple and super cheap dinner.
My slow cooker is my all-time favorite kitchen appliance. I mean just toss it and forget it, take a nap, and dinner is ready. Does it get any better though? My other reason for this being my favorite is the chicken legs.
I can always get chicken legs on sale and for cheap! Like really cheap. I usually stock up when I see a sale and then try and find different ways to cook them. Cheap and easy meals, they are a win-win!
My kids love BBQ sauce. I've even spied my oldest eating his BBQ dipping sauce with a spoon!
Needless to say, BBQ Chicken is a favorite in our house. I change up the flavor with just adding a packet of ranch seasoning. I then added my chicken legs to the slow cooker and poured the sauce on. Easy as can be!!
I added green onions to the top really just to make it pretty so you can totally skip that part but I actually LOVE green onions and BBQ and ate it with them on top and it was so yummy!
Took them off for the kids of course because well they are green. 😉
With football seasoning coming to an end we all know the big game will be here soon and I think I just might be serving these! Hope you enjoy them!

To cook the chicken legs in the slow cooker before u add the sauce do u just add water and if so how much?
Hi Kristy. I don't add any water to this recipe. When the chicken starts cooking it lets out enough water that nothing sticks.
