Cooking MethodSlow Cooker


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup garlic, minced
  • 1 can (28-ounce) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (28-ounce) diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken legs (about 10 chicken legs)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 box of shaped pasta (such as rotini), cooked according to package directions


  1. Heat olive oil over medium high flame.

  2. Add onions and a large pinch of salt. Let the onions cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking and prevent sticking.

  3. Add garlic, stir very well and let cook 1-2 more minutes until garlic is fragrant.

  4. Add cans of tomatoes, stir well and turn heat down to low-medium. Cover pot and allow to simmer and heat through while you sear the chicken legs.

  5. While the onions and garlic are cooking, rinse the chicken legs and set them on a tray lined with paper towels. Salt and pepper them liberally.

  6. Heat 2 T olive oil in a skillet and place the chicken legs seasoned side down. Salt and pepper the side facing up.

  7. Sear for about 2 minutes on each side. Then repeat on each side. The outside should be lightly browned.

  8. When the legs are browned, turn off the heat. Add the sauce to the slow cooker and add the chicken legs with a pair of tongs careful not to add too much oil to the sauce.

  9. Submerge the chicken legs as you add them. Cook for 6 hours on high.

  10. Use tongs to pull all the chicken legs out of the slow cooker. Debone all of the chicken and return to pot. Stir well and serve over pasta.
