It's full of protein (obviously) and healthy fats from the grass-fed butter. </span><br><br><span>We served it with a side of sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli. The sweet potatoes were already made and the broccoli took no time to prepare. </span><br><br><span>The meat is what always seems to take time and energy to make. You have to thaw it out and cook it, which can be a long process from start to finish. I recommend having a solid game plan for your protein at each meal and then move down the list to plan veggies and carbs. </span><br><br><span>You can easily cook a large roast or whole chicken on Sundays to have meat to eat on through the week. We also like to keep frozen meatballs on hand for quick meals. Make sure and put crockpot meals like this on your list to keep busy nights simple in your home. <br><br><u><strong>Garlicky Crockpot Chicken Drumsticks</strong></u></span><br>10 Organic Chicken Drumsticks<br>3 T grass-fed butter, cut into small pieces<br>1 head of garlic, cloves separated but not peeled<br>1 cup bone broth<br>salt, pepper, parsley, onion powder, paprika to taste<br><br>Season chicken with salt, pepper, parsley, onion powder, and paprika to taste. <br><br>Add seasoned chicken to crockpot then pour in broth. Add butter and garlic cloves. <br><br>Cook on low for 4-6 hours--depending on strength of crockpot. I'm usually good with 4 hours as ours is a very hot crockpot (it's from Costco). <br><br>Serve with sweet or regular potatoes and a leafy green salad or sautéed vegetables. <br> </div>
