More About This Recipe
  • Making chicken in the slow cooker is always a good idea. It’s one of the easiest ways to prep this protein, no matter which part of the chicken you cook with; chicken breasts, chicken thighs and sometimes even whole chickens can be made in the slow cooker for a super flavorful, juicy chicken dinner. When cooking chicken thighs in the slow cooker, and really, cooking in the slow cooker in general, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, don’t cook past the recommended time on the recipe. This can result in an overcooked dish pretty quickly. On the other hand, don’t remove the lid to check on your recipe. Slow cookers work because they trap heat inside the device and cook food at a low temperature for a long time. Taking the lid off will release of some of the heat, and it will take the slow cooker some time to warm back up, which means it will take your dish longer to cook than expected! Follow these slow cooker tips, and you’ll be an expert in no time. Ready to tackle your next chicken recipe? We have tons of top-rated dishes top-rated dishes for you to choose from.
