Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 lb chicken legs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground fennel
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 medium-size onions, sliced thin
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
2 green onions, sliced, for garnish, if desired

In a small bowl combine the garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, fennel, and cinnamon; rub all over the chicken legs.

Place the chicken legs in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Sprinkle any leftover seasoning mixture over all.

Evenly distribute the onion slices over the chicken.

Combine the coconut milk, water, lemon juice, and lemon rind in a small bowl.  Pour over the chicken and onions.

Place lid on cooker and cook 6 to 8 hours on low setting or 3 to 4 hours on high setting.

When serving, garnish with the green onions, if desired.

Note:  If cooking for a crowd you can use a 5 to 7-quart slow cooker and double the ingredients, except the water.  You would still only use 1 cup of water.
