This is one of my most favorite slow cooker recipes and I have made it dozens of times over the years, altering the first recipe I found from Pinterest.
It is SUPER easy to throw together in 15 minutes in the morning and have it be all ready for you at dinner time!
Mine never turns out as pretty as the overshared Pinterest photo but, it tastes amazing!
You can use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, but make sure you take them out and crisp the skin under the broiler before serving. Otherwise, boneless-skinless chicken thighs are perfect.
Here you go:
8 chicken thighs
10 small baby red potatoes, halved or 3 medium russet potatoes, cubed
1 bag of baby carrots
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 lb of green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup ketchup
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or more for an extra kick)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, ketchup, garlic, basil, red pepper flakes and pepper.
Place chicken thighs, potatoes, carrots, onion and soy sauce mixture into a 6-qt slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Add the green beans during the last 30 minutes of cooking time.
If using bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs: Preheat oven to broil. Place chicken thighs onto a baking sheet, skin side up, and broil until crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
Serve chicken immediately with potatoes, carrots and green beans, garnished with parsley, if desired.
