Slow cooker BBQ drumsticks served with garlic spinach noodles

dinner easy familymeal pickyeater

This was a mid week meal that turned out fabulous. I love it when that happens. The idea was to prepare a slow cooker meal to have ready for the evening, so I prepared the drumsticks before going out to work. Come dinner time I wasn't keen on a side of potato and veg, so I searched the pantry for some inspiration. Out came an open packet of medium noodles which I decided to mix with garlic and spinach.

Unfortunately the noodles were too garlicky for our 5 year old so she took them plain (luckily I had kept some aside, phew!) But my husband and I gobbled up dinner like there was no tomorrow! I must admit, that with more time on my hand I would have stir fried more vegetables to add to the noodles, but otherwise this turned out great!

  2. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Mix 3/4 cup of BBQ sauce and 1/4 cup of honey and drizzle over the drumsticks
  4. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  5. When cooked, put on a lined baking tray and put the remaining BBQ sauce
  6. Broil under grill for a few minutes

Garlic spinach noodles

  • 3 portions medium noodles (the ones i buy come in "nests" so you can use a nest as a portion)
  • 1-2 Clove garlic
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • Some cashews roughly chopped

Boil water and cook noodles according to packet instructions. In the meantime cook the garlic in a little olive oil or butter. Add spinach until it has wilted. Add drained noodles to the spinach and mix.
