What is your favorite kitchen appliance? The one you couldn’t live without.
Mine, hands down, is the crock pot. I attribute 100% of my success getting healthy meals into my family on busy nights to this kitchen convenience. I love my crock pot so much, that for Mother’s Day, my husband bought me a brand new one (mine was 12 years old) and I truly thought it was the best gift ever.
I often talk with moms about getting simple meals on the dinner table and find that many are not using this awesome gadget.
There are so many recipes that can easily be put together in the morning while your children are eating breakfast. Dinner is then waiting when you get home for the day. There is not much better than that.
I feel it is important to learn how to put a dinner meal together without having to follow a recipe, it is one of my goals to teach you here at Create Kids Club.
This Crock Pot Chicken Thighs recipe is a great meal idea that you can easily prepare – and it doesn’t require a recipe.
Grab a beer and we will get started. Take two if you want one to drink – because the beer is for the recipe. 🙂 Joking aside, grab your favorite, or least favorite beer (this is how I clear out beers that are not my favorite). Choose 3 spices that your family likes, plus salt and pepper. Next, get out a package of bone in chicken thighs.
Place the chicken thighs into your crock pot, pour the beer in, sprinkle 1 tsp of each spice (I used garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika) along with 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours if frozen. If using thawed chicken cook on high for 2 hours and low for 4 hours.
