Let’s recap:

First things first, grab your trusty slow cooker. Layer the sliced onions at the bottom – they’ll create a tasty foundation for the rest of the ingredients. Next, toss in the baby carrots and sliced potatoes. Pro tip: putting the veggies at the bottom ensures they cook properly, as they need a bit more heat than the chicken.

For the sauce, mix chicken broth with a pinch of salt, some dried thyme, minced garlic, and a dash of black pepper. Give it a good stir and pour it over your veggie layer.

Now for the star of the show – the chicken thighs. Season them with a mix of black pepper, paprika, and salt. Make sure to pat the seasoning in well, then arrange the thighs on top of the vegetables.

Set your slow cooker to low and let it work its magic for about six hours. By the time you’re ready for dinner, you’ll have tender, flavorful chicken and perfectly cooked vegetables.

A few extra tips to make your life easier:

  1. If you’re really pressed for time in the morning, prep everything the night before. Just pop the slow cooker insert in the fridge and place it in the base before you head out.
  2. Resist the urge to peek! Every time you lift the lid, you’re adding about 20 minutes to the cooking time.
  3. If you’re using an older slow cooker, consider upgrading. Newer models cook more evenly and often have a handy “warm” setting for those nights when everyone’s running late.

When it’s time to serve, ladle some extra broth over the chicken and veggies, and sprinkle with fresh parsley if you’re feeling fancy.

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. With minimal prep time and virtually no hands-on cooking, you can have a delicious, home-cooked meal ready and waiting. Plus, your kitchen stays clean – no pots and pans to scrub after dinner!

So next time you’re stumped for dinner ideas or just need a break from the kitchen, give this slow cooker chicken recipe a try. It might just become your new weeknight go-to!

I hope you like it. It is definitely one of the most popular recipes. Don’t forget to share!
