Chicken thighs are cheapter than chicken breasts, can stand up to the long cooking times in the crockpot better, and have more flavor. So why are chicken breasts more popular? I have no idea. I love putting chicken thighs in the crockpot with just about anything and letting it simmer all day, filling the house with incredible aromas. And they cook quickly too, when you want dinner in a hurry. Enjoy these easy recipes featuring chicken thighs.
I love this super easy recipe. In fact, this is going to be simmering away in my crockpot tomorrow since I have such a busy day. The chicken becomes so moist and tender, and the flavor of the sauce is outstanding. You could add more veggies to the recipe if you'd like: carrots, broccoli (during the last hour) or red bell peppers (also during the last hour) would all be delicious.
This wholesome and homey recipe is so good. The dumplings cook to perfection in the slow cooker, which was rather a surprise to me. And a note about the ingredients: if you don't like onion or thyme, just leave them out! That's the beauty of cooking recipes. They can be changed to suit your own tastes.
Hmmm, I'm sensing a theme here. Well, chicken thighs work so well in the crockpot, I guess I'm not surprised! Andouille sausage, lots of onion and garlic, Tabasco sauce, and pepper add zing to this easy recipe. Add the orzo and shrimp at the end so they cook to perfection, then dig in.
Well, I love this recipe. And if you love sweet and sour flavors, you will too! Frozen lemonade concentrate adds such wonderful flavor to the chicken and makes them so tender. If you prefer a less sweet sauce, you could substitute lemon juice and chicken stock, or increase the amount of vinegar in the recipe. Serve it over hot cooked rice to soak up all the sauce.
This super quick recipe takes just 35 minutes from start to finish; less if you work fast! The chicken is tender and flavorful, and the sauce is something special. Make this one for company!
