As I enter the home stretch on my third book, I’ve asked my friend, Cris, if she would be a guest on Southern Plate. She agreed to share her Slow Cooker One Pot Chicken Dinner! Y’all, this is one of the sweetest, cutest, ladies you could ever hope to meet. On top of that, she inspires me with her kindness and wisdom and it is a joy to be able to call her friend. I know you’ll enjoy getting to visit with her as much as I do! Gratefully, Christy
I am just so delighted to be visiting with ya’ll today! I was so honored when Christy asked me to stop by and share one of my favorite recipes with you. As a blogger it is so much fun to get to work with other bloggers like Christy, she is what we call back home– Good People ;).
So now the hard decision of what to share… what to share?
How about a recipe we make all the time at our house: Slow Cooker One Pot Chicken Dinner. As you might imagine, we make all kinds of slow cooker recipes at our house for our site Recipes That Crock! So, I tell my readers if I am sharing a recipe that we make over and over again, you know it is serious good. And, this my friends is SERIOUS good and so easy to throw together.
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!
Truth be told, we cook with chicken thighs a lot on Recipes that Crock. From everything from Crock Pot Chicken and Rice to Slow Cooker Rustic Italian Chicken to the oh-so-yummy Crock Pot Fiesta Chicken and Beans, the chicken thighs are our secret weapon for great slow cooker chicken every time!
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.
