I got 4 flavors of Amish Roll Butter to try out: Regular, Garlic and Herb, Smoke and Maple. I was really excited about these because I love the quality of the butter and that it is made from pasture-raised cows. There are so many awesome ways to use this butter–maple on pancakes, garlic and herb bread, smoked butter on meat. It was kind of tricky to come up with a slow cooker recipe though.
So I decided to go with something simple and super easy.
Slow Cooker Garlic and Herb Drumsticks
5-6 chicken drumsticks
1/4 cup melted Minerva Dairy Garlic and Herb butter
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 TBSP minced onion
To prepare, roll up a few pieces of foil into a ball. I made 3 balls. You don’t need to roll them too tight. You just want enough to make a bit of a raised surface so the drumsticks are not sitting in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Lay the drumsticks on the foil, pour on the melted butter and sprinkle on the onion powder and minced onion. Rub it all over the drumsticks so it is coated. Top each piece with one more small pat of butter (about 1/2 tsp or so) then cook it on low at least six hours.
Optional: place cooked drumsticks on a pan and broil 2-3 minutes on each side, for a crispier outside.
