  • Vegetable oil spray
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 4 pounds bone-on skin-on chicken drumsticks, pat-tried using paper towels
  • ¾ cup Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup honey


  • Coat the inside of you slow cooker bowl generously with vegetable oil spray. Set it aside.
  • Mix together the sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, dry mustard, salt and pepper.
  • Using your clean hands, rub the mixture all over the chicken. Transfer the chicken into the bowl of the slow cooker.
  • Whisk together the Dijon mustard and honey in a bowl.
  • Pour ½ cup of the mixture over the chicken and make sure that the drumsticks are thoroughly coated with it. Reserve the rest.
  • Cook the chicken in low heat setting of your slow cooker until it is tender, 4-5 hours.
  • 10 minutes before your chicken is fully cooked, pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over it. Lightly spray the wire rack with vegetable spray.
  • Transfer the chicken to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the drumsticks with the half of the reserved honey-mustard mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the skin is lightly charred and crisp.
  • Flip the chicken, brush the drumsticks with the rest of the honey-mustard mixture and place it back in the oven. Continue to bake until the skin is lightly charred and crisp.
  • Serve over Uncle Ben’s flavored long grain wild rice.
