  • 1

    Tbsp all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 1/2

    pound(s) uncooked skinless boneless chicken drumstick(s), (about 6 1/4 drumsticks)

  • 1

    pound(s) uncooked red potatoes, cut into quarters

  • 1

    pound(s) uncooked baby carrots

  • 1

    leaf/leaves bay leaf

  • 1/2

    tsp table salt

  • 1/4

    tsp black pepper, freshly ground

  • 1/2

    cup(s) parsley, fresh, chopped

  • 1

    tsp dried sage, or 1 tablespoons fresh, chopped

  • 1/8

    tsp lemon zest, 1 strip

  • 2

    tsp fresh lemon juice

Directions

Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Put the chicken, potatoes, carrots, bay leaf, salt, and pepper in a 5–6-quart slow cooker; pour the broth mixture over the chicken and vegetables. Cover the slow cooker and cook until chicken and vegetables are fork-tender, 4–5 hours on high or 8–10 hours on low. Discard the bay leaf. Add the parsley, sage, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the slow cooker; cover and cook on high until the flavors blend, about 10 minutes. Yields 1 drumstick with 1 cup vegetables and sauce per serving. Notes ****You can substitute tarragon, rosemary, or thyme for the sage, and 1⁄2 cup of wine for 1⁄2 cup of the broth if you like.
