Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki Drumsticks Recipe

This Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Drumsticks was a recipe that I hadn’t tried before. It was originally shared by Little Miss Bossy on the Betty Crocker website here. I made a few minor variations to make it a tad bit more healthy. I added much less oil and used extra virgin olive oil, added less brown and regular sugar, and used less of and low sodium soy sauce. This had an incredible kick to it and the whole family loved it. The original recipe says to refrigerate and marinate for at least 2 hours, I would suggest doing it overnight. Without further ado, here is the recipe with the alterations I made:
