I needed a quick, simple, cheap dinner.....and one that required VERY LITTLE thought process behind it. I remembered how I was at my cousin't house a couple months ago and she had made chicken legs that were delicious! When I asked her what she cooked them with, she said "Mrs. Dash!" That's it! I couldn't believe it! Something so simple tasted so good!
So, when I needed simple, I too, turned to Mrs. Dash seasoning. It made my chicken legs delicious! Of course, in "Hope fashion," I doctored even my Mrs. Dash up a bit and added a few more spices to make this Italian Spiced Chicken.
Honestly, anyone has time for this recipe. So, go grab some super cheap chicken legs, your spices and get CROCKIN'!
3-4 lbs. bone-in chicken legs (or any other bone-in chicken)
1 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning
1 Tbsp. basil
1 Tbsp. oregano
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. onion powder
2 oz. tomato paste
1/2 cup water
Directions: (Use a 5 quart or larger slow cooker for this)
Mix together the Mrs. Dash, basil, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder.
Line the bottom of your crock with chicken and sprinkle with the seasoning.
Place the remaining chicken on top and sprinkle with the rest of the seasoning.
Mix together the tomato paste and water.
(Mine was a little thick, so I added more water later. Yours will be a little thinner because I made the adjustment to the recipe above for you)
Pour the tomato sauce over the chicken.
Cook on LOW for 8 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours.
