2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

12 chicken drumsticks, skinned

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup orange marmalade

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 tablespoons water

1 (11-ounce) can mandarin orange segments, drained


3 cups hot cooked rice

1 tablespoon sliced green onion

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter in 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add chicken drumsticks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, turning once, 4-5 minutes or until chicken is browned.

  2. STEP 2

    Place chicken into 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Combine orange marmalade and chicken broth in small bowl. Pour over chicken. Cover; cook on High heat setting 2-3 hours or on Low heat setting 6-7 hours, or until chicken is tender.

  3. STEP 3

    Remove chicken to serving platter; cover to keep warm. Strain juices into 1-quart saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water in small bowl; stir into juices. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 4-5 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Stir in orange segments. Serve chicken with hot rice and orange sauce. Sprinkle with green onion.

Tip #1

Removing the skin from drumsticks decreases the amount of fat in this dish. Grasp skin with a paper towel and pull skin from meat. Discard skin and paper towel.
