Slow-Cooker Chicken Thighs

    This was a great and super easy dinner to make. I used 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and it turned out beautifully. I also omitted the potatoes (didn't have them on hand) and made mashed potatoes instead to accompany the meal. I did notice that I didn't have to cook it as long on LOW, probably only 4-5 hours. That is probably because of the chicken I used.

    I made this in a 4.5 qt crock pot and 5 thighs fit easily, although to cook more you would need to use the larger size (recommended) crock pot. It was delicious! Taste tested by a family of five ~ it passed with flying colors. A new family favorite for every day meals. We enjoyed it with rice and greens.

    Nice meat and veggies dish, great flavor. I use chicken legs or thighs, whatever I have at the time.

    Great recipe base. I changed things up slighty, with more veggies and red pepper, and no white wine. Also used boneless/skinless thighs. See details at http://valerielin.com/2011/11/14/slow-cooker-chicken-thighs/ Overall, soooo yum!

    Actually, haven't tried this yet, but sounds great. Question: does it matter is you used skinless or skin-on chix? What's the reason for skinless -- other than dietary concerns? I'm used to oven-baking with skin-on, but want to try slow cooking. (first attempt with boneless turkey breast was failure -- boiled like an egg, agh!)

    This recipe was wonderful. I de-skinned the chicken thighs and cooked it on low for the full 7 hours. It was simple- nutritious- delicious. I assembled it the night before, popped it in the crock pot in the morning and viola, it was ready when I got home.

    Although the chicken was very tender, it may have been the most bland chicken dish I have ever made. I followed the recipe as written, even added more veggies. Terrible. Will need to come up with something to make the leftovers edible so it doesn't go to waste.

    Easy and my whole family loved it! I used turnips instead of potatoes. Delicious!
