Crockpot Leg Quarters
We are usually cooking for two so sometimes I only have two leg quarters in the Crockpot. I have gotten three leg quarters in my big Crockpot and think four would fit. Although I have not tried it, I think piling them up would work but you would need to add more cooking time.
Be sure to remove as much fat as you possibly can so you’ll have less juices in the bottom of the pot. We do want some juice which is why I don’t remove the skin prior to cooking.
If you are layering your leg quarters in order to cook more, be sure to sprinkle the seasoning onto each layer separately or toss the leg quarters in a Ziploc bag with the seasoning prior to adding them to the Slow Cooker.

Fix it and forget it in the Crockpot while you do other things. This easy chicken recipe is ready in just a few hours, not an all day Slow Cooker meal.
- 2 Leg
- Turn Crockpot on to Low setting
- Rinse the leg quarters under cool running water
- Place the leg quarters into the Crockpot
- Sprinkle the Zesty Italian seasoning over top
- Cover and cook on Low approximately 3-4 hours until done. Chicken should register 165° on a meat thermometer when done.
You can put the leg quarters into a Ziploc bag and sprinkle the Italian Seasoning Mix over them then close and shake well to cover before putting the chicken in the Crockpot. I have done it both ways and it comes out the same.
