My new favorite chicken.What?!I know. I always find a new recipe that becomes my favorite. And it is.Like “eat it every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of it” kind of favorite.Crazy.Obsessed.That’s me.But don’t judge until you’ve tried. This slow cooker recipe makes cooking for the family easy and enjoyable.It just might become your new favorite along with all the other favorites.Because it’s so good.And I didn’t even mention yet.Simple.A few steps but super simple ingredients.Who doesn’t love that?!
Can we talk about chicken thighs?So much flavor!Boneless, skinless so no weird chicken touching stuff to go through.No excuses.If you haven’t tried chicken thighs yet this is the recipe to try.I’m pretty sure you will be hooked.The flavor, texture, and juiciness CAN NOT be beat.In most recipes I’m all good with switching it out for chicken breasts, but here I might cry if you do!
Summer is here and this lemon works perfectly with the heat. Especially here in Texas where we are MELTING. These days you want something with a little lighter taste and this will not disappoint.It’s kind of the best of both worlds with the creamy richness offset with the tangy lemon.Did I mention the delicious flavor of the chicken.Oh yeah, I guess I did!
Brown up your chicken with a bit of olive oil and butter and get some onions and garlic browned up while
you’re at it!I don’t suggest skipping this step as the nice brown crust is kind of
essential in this recipe!Otherwise I think the chicken would kind of fall apart.
When it’s all done cooking you will add the cream (and lemon and mustard) to your sauce!You can just add it right to the crock OR you can take 5 minutes and bring it to a boil with a little added cornstarch in a saucepan and you will not be sorry.At all.The sauce will become that much more thick and rich and stick right to every bite of that chicken!Give it a try and let me know if chicken thighs are your new favorite!
