Rainy and Cold

Time to pull out the slow cooker!!

 

I love chicken in the slow cooker

It is always tender, flavorful and loved by the kid who doesn’t like meat!

I love using chicken thighs especially for their great flavor and the great price I can get when buying organic!

As I was eating this I thought

“Hmmmm … this would be a great “throw in the blender” baby food recipe”

Must have baby stuff on my mind!

In your slow cooker, layer:

 

2 medium onions, sliced

1 lb (about 4-5) potatoes, sliced

3 cups carrots

 

 

Mix 1 cup chicken stock

3/4 cup white wine

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons thyme

 

 

Pour over vegetables in crock pot

 

 

Mix:

2 tablespoons paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

and

rub both sides of chicken thighs (about 8) with spice mixture

 

 

Set chicken thighs on top of vegetables

 

Cook on LOW for 8 hours

 

 

 

Ren approved!!
