Chicken Thighs and Veggies: Crockpot

I have seen several variations of this recipe online, so I adapted my own for our family.  Chicken thighs were on sale recently for 99c per pound.  Actually, had I waited, they had leg quarters this week for 60c per pound that just needed to be cut.  Can't pass up deals like that!

This was super easy to throw together in the crock pot, and my family LOVED it!  Everyone wanted seconds and asked could we make it again soon.  In a family of five...that is winning.

This also made the house smell REALLY good!

6-8 chicken thighs (about 1 1/2-2 lb)
5-7 red potatoes (about 1 lb)
1 medium onion, sliced lengthwise
2 c. baby carrots
2 c. chicken broth
1-2 Tbsp Greek seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Place sliced onion into bottom of crock pot.  Layer in potato slices and carrots.  Sprinkle with half of the Greek seasoning and desired salt and pepper, then pour in chicken broth.  Coat chicken thighs with desired salt and pepper and remaining Greek seasoning.  Rub on paprika generously.  Add chicken to crock pot.  Cook on low 8 hours.  Serve hot & enjoy!

I hope your family enjoys this one as much as mine did.  I plan to prepare it again soon.  The chicken thighs were so fall apart tender that the bones literally slipped out and were in the bottom of the crock pot.


  1. This is in my crockpot now!

  2. You should post pics so I could pin it to my board of recipes to try! I will try this soon! I have never bought Greek seasoning though - what one do you suggest?

  3. Leanne, I hope you enjoyed it as much as my family did.

    Nora, the Greek seasoning that I use was given to me as a gift. It literally is just a white shaker container that says Greek seasoning and has a little man dancing on it. Also, I am making this again soon and will try to take a pic. For now though, I will add a pic of a crockpot if you would like to pin it now rather than waiting until I cook it again.
