This is what I call a serious fall-off-the-bone delicacy.

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Chicken

  1. Combine kosher salt, pepper, garlic salt, chili powder, and paprika. Season the chicken legs with the spice rub and set aside.

  2. Preheat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and brown the chicken legs in batches, about three to four minutes per side.

  3. Spray the insert of a six-quart slow cooker with cooking spray (or line with a liner). Place the onion slices on the bottom of the pot. Neatly arrange the browned chicken legs over the onions. Spread the carrots and potatoes over the chicken.

  4. Whisk the broth, wine, garlic, tomato paste, and thyme. Season with additional salt, pepper, and garlic salt, to taste. Stir in the cornstarch, then pour the sauce over
    the chicken and vegetables. Press the bay leaf into the sauce.

  5. Cover the slow cooker and bake on high for two to two and a half hours or on low for four to six hours.

    Do I really have to brown the chicken, or can I just put the raw chicken straight into the slow cooker?

    My crockpot is small. How can I cook it in a 9x13 in the oven? I’m thinking 350 for 2 hours covered. Would that work?

    You can cook it in a 9x13 like you suggested or you could even cook it on your stove top- low and slow.

    I'm only cooking for two. Does it pay to half the ingredients or can this be served for two or three days?

    You can either half the ingredeints or you can eat it for a few nights- it's really up to you :)

    Is the liquid supposed to be enough to cover?

    I don't think it will fully cover the chicken but it will probably cover it half way.

    Yes, you may need to adjust the cooking temperature.
