Wife loved it. I was sparing on the sugar before the cooking time, and added sugar to taste when I reduced the juices following cooking in the crock pot. Mine was done after about 2 1/2 hours on high. Once reduced, the cooking juices reduced over the stove top to a thick delicious glaze I spread over the drumsticks before serving. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

The scent of the chicken cooking is just divine! Quite an usual use of spices for me and I was pleasantly surprised! I used chicken thighs and omitted the jalapenos (personal preference) but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Great recipe and will definitely make again.
