    Who the heck gets full on 1 drumstick? This would serve (barely) 3 people. - 3/3/14

    Loved this meal, I had the one drumstick along with some salad and some corn for starch. The meat was falling of the bone when I was ready to serve, I had to add some spices to it because my family "needs more flavor" but w/o the extras it was a wonderful taste. Definitely a favorite. :-) - 1/6/15

    This was okay, but kinda disappointed because I thought it would be more flavorful than it was -- especially since crockpot recipes usually do a great job of baking the flavor all the way through. The coating was passable, but the meat underneath tasted pretty ordinary. - 8/27/14
