Crock Pot Chicken Thighs With Vegetables
Adapted from this recipe
1 cup chicken broth
12 medium chicken thighs
1 1/2 tsps leaves dried basil
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground curry powder
1 package mixed vegetables

Rinse chicken and remove skin, leaving the bone in.

Place a layer of thighs in the bottom of the crock pot.

Sprinkle with seasonings. Repeat until all thighs are in the pot.

Pour a cup of chicken broth down the side of the pot, being careful not to disturb the seasonings.

Cook on low setting of crock pot for 6 hours.

Add mixed vegetables, recover and cook for 1 1/2 hour or until vegetables are heated through.

Adaptions
I had a pack of 12 boneless skinless chicken thighs thawing in the fridge so I checked online to see what I could make with them and found this recipe. The original recipe called for turmeric which I thought I had, but I didn’t, so I used curry powder instead. I had a bag of frozen vegetables in the freezer which had peas, baby carrots, baby corn, and sugar snap peas so that’s what I used.

The original recipe said to cook on high for 4 hours, but I like cooking with the crock pot on low, so I cooked it for 6 hours. After I added the vegetables I cooked for an hour but they were still not warm enough, so I cooked for another 30 min. or so.

Thoughts
This was SO good! The seasoning on the thighs stuck really well and I thought it was perfect. If you don’t like your food really spicy you might want to cut back a little on the seasonings.

The chicken was mostly falling apart and it was all very tender. You could eat the chicken and vegetables without the broth, but I added quite a bit and it was more like a soup or stew.

This was really quick and easy to prepare, and was very yummy. I liked it so much I had it the next day for lunch. I will be making it again.

  1. This is another one I will “steal” from you! I tried the sticky drumsticks and they were amazing, that post needs to go up soon. Like you, I think food is better from the slow cooker if you use low heat. Love this recipe!

  2. This sounds really good — and perfect for warmer weather because it uses the slow cooker. My husband loves chicken thighs, so I’ll have to add this to my list of things to try.

  3. This sounds delicious! I love my slow cooker and am always trying to use it more often. The flavor sounds really good. I love the addition of curry and I’m a fan of anything involving baby corn.

  4. Crock pots are the easiest way to cook. This sounds easy. thank you for the recipe.

  5. Thanks for the recipe! Sounds like a great weekday meal.

  6. I need to find good slow cooker recipes – my own experience is a bit hit and miss. Have a great week. Cheers from Carole’s Chatter

  7. sounds yummy

  8. Yum! You have to love an easy and delicious slow cooker meal and I am crazy for anything with curry in it. Thanks for sharing this with Souper Sundays too! 😉

  9. I love to cook chicken thighs, they are so flavorful. This recipe wounds like a keeper to me.

  10. One day I might actually break down and get a slow cooker, and yummy sounding recipes like yours make me wonder how I’ve gone all this time without.

  11. Looks and sounds delicious! This is something super easy and my husband would love it, too. I’d probably use less broth and serve it with rice.

  12. This looks very delicious, Vicki!

  13. Chicken thighs are so great in the slow cooker! I have pinned this post to remind me to try your adaptation of this recipe. I only keep frozen corn and frozen peas in stock, so I’ll need to look for a good brand of mixed frozen veggies to use.
