Slow Cooker Chicken

Recipes

The kids are back in school… what makes life easy! Slow cookers… check out this recipe and have a nice warm meal ready for the kids when they get home!

  • 2.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 parsnips
  • 3 carrots
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 red onion
  • 10-12 whole garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon rubbed sage
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Cut the parsnips, carrots, celery, and onion into large chunks making sure that the carrots and parsnips are cut roughly the same size for even cooking.  Place the chicken in the crockpot and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.  On top of the chicken layer the onions and whole garlic cloves followed by the parsnips, carrots, and celery. In a glass measuring cup mix together the chicken broth, coconut oil, thyme and sage (it helps to melt the coconut oil first in the microwave).  Pour this mixture evenly over the chicken and veggies and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 7.

Enjoy!!
