what you need

  • 3 pounds chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons sweet paprika, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

here's how

  1. In a 6-quart slow cooker, toss the chicken, paprika, garlic, cayenne, and 1 teaspoon salt until the meat is evenly coated. In a small bowl, whisk the tomato paste and 1/4 cup water. Pour into the slow cooker, then scatter the onion and pepper on top.
