Sun Dried Tomato Chicken is a simple crock pot recipe that combines chicken thighs, coconut milk, and sun-dried tomatoes into a delicious and nutritious dinner meal.
Years ago, when my husband and I were just married, I tried my hand at crock pot meals. We both worked full time and had no children, yet it was still nice to come home to a meal ready to eat.
Unfortunately, he did not care for those meals – for good reason. I don’t remember exactly what I used to make, but I do remember it being some form of dried out meat. Eventually, I put the crock pot away.
Then we had children, life got more busy, and I figured it was time to give the ol’ crock pot another chance. I have since learned that the right recipe makes all the difference.

I admit, I was not sure if my kids would eat the sun dried tomatoes, since they usually have such a strong flavor. It turned out to be a non-issue. They ate the entire meal with no complaints.
I have been on a chicken thigh kick lately – for a couple reasons.
#1. My whole family will eat them no matter the preparation
#2. They are inexpensive to purchase
#3. They freeze well and work great in the crock pot
