Slow Cooker Herbed Barbecue Chicken Legs

Slow Cooker Herbed Barbecue Chicken LegsWe are HUGE fans of barbecue anything, but particularly of barbecue sauce. I could happily lick barbecue sauce from my fingers on the regular, and I truly love livin’ in the South and getting my fill of delicious barbecue on the regular. However, it’s nice to change your barbecue recipes up a bit. We have made barbecue chicken legs a lot around here, and one day while shopping at Costco, this Kirkland Signature Sweet Mesquite Seasoning caught our eye.

One large package of chicken legs in a slow cooker, a generous GENEROUS slathering of this barbecue seasoning onto every single leg on every side until covered, and then set it to cook on low all day and you’ve got an easy and delicious dish for dinner (and, if you plan ahead and buy enough, for lunches the next day).
