Easy Chicken Drumstick Chile Verde (Slow Cooker)

This is a simpler version of chicken chile verde.  Drumsticks are really the best choice- great flavor and super cheap! The bones impart good brothi-ness to the cooking liquid.

Pull the skin down to the ankle bones on 1.5 - 2 lbs chicken drumsticks.  Toss in slow cooker.

Add a couple cubed yukon gold potatoes, 2 smashed cloves garlic, 1 cubed white/yellow onion.

Pour 1 pint tomatillo salsa or sauce over and add as much water as is needed to just cover the contents.

Cook on low in the slow cooker for 6- 8 hours. Pull the bones and cartilage out and shred the meat. Season with salt and black pepper. Serve in bowls as a stew, or over cooked brown rice, or with warmed tortillas.
