We have made this a million different ways… with chicken legs, a whole chicken, different kinds of veggies, herbs, etc. But today I am going to share my VERY favorite way with you– boneless skinless chicken thighs and fresh rosemary. Those thighs have just enough fat in them to crock up nice and juicy without drying out and I love me some rosemary!

This is one of those dishes that is purely dump and go and perfect every time. You simply layer your veggies, seasoning as you go and top with your chicken and herbs. As the chicken cooks up, the drippings make for a delicious broth that the veggies cook up in all day.

  • 6-10 Red Potatoes halved if large

  • 2 Sweet Onions- quartered
  • ½ Cup Sherry or broth
  • Salt Pepper and Poultry Seasoning to Taste
  • lbs Boneless Chicken Thighs
  • 4 sprigs Rosemary or Thyme


  • Layer veggies in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour in sherry or broth.
  • Layer chicken on top and season with poultry seasoning and salt and pepper.
  • Top with sprigs of rosemary or thyme
  • Cook on low for 5-8 hours.


NOTE: If you choose to make it with a whole chicken or chicken legs or thighs that still have skin on them, I like to broil them for a few minutes after they get done slow cooking to crisp up the skin a bit. I just lay them out on a cookie sheet and pop them under the broiler, watching them very closely so they don't burn. You can also pull them out and rotate them if you like.

  1. Since my husband really doesn’t like dark meat I hardly ever cook chicken thighs so can this be made with breasts? I always have frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts in my freezer. And it sounds really good.

  2. I wonder if frozen thighs can be used or do they need to be defrosted first …. I keep several packages on hand in my freezer … thanks

  3. This looks like a great recipe, Cris. I’ll definitely be trying it very soon.

    I also appreciate your tip about broiling the chicken first if you’re using chicken with the skin on. I make another recipe in the crockpot with skin on chicken drumsticks and I always quickly brown them on the stove first. Silly me, I never thought to just pop them in the oven for a quick broil. That will be so much easier than the way I usually do it. Thanks so much for that tip and this recipe!

    Christy, good luck finishing the book. I’ve been keeping you in my prayers as you’re in that home stretch. We can’t wait to see it!
