It is amazing how juicy chicken thighs are! Yet chicken breasts get all the attention.
Slow-cooker chicken thighs don’t require any fancy preparation. You just pour some spice on the chicken, put the seasoned chicken into the slow-cooker and come back hours later to find a delicious Paleo dinner ready for you.
Enjoy this easy slow cooker chicken recipe.
How to make Slow- Cooker Chicken Thighs
1. Sprinkle spices onto about 2 pounds of chicken thighs (bone in/skin on).
I used salt, pepper and other spices.
I’ve used a Hawaiian Macadamia nut seasoning before, and even some Mrs. Dash Original seasoning on the chicken.
But add whatever your favorite spices are. Or try new things and get creative.
Add a generous amount of the seasoning onto the chicken.
2. Spray olive oil into the slow cooker
3. Place the chicken into the slow cooker
In the picture above I used just 2 pieces of chicken but other times I’ve laid down about 2 pounds of chicken thighs into the slow cooker.
I had so many that I had to stack a few on top of others. I thought this might negatively affect the chicken but it didn’t seem to.
4. Secure the lid and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
I cooked mine for 5.5 hours and they were delicious.
Check the internal temperature with a thermometer and make sure they are at least 165-degree F.
