Mediterranean Slow Cooker Chicken


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, cubed (peeled if you like)
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup green olives, chopped + 1/2 cup olive ‘juice’
  • 3/4 cup California Dried Plums, halved
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Cilantro for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In slow cooker combine onion, bell pepper, sweet potato, chicken, oregano, olives, olive juice, dried plums, crushed red pepper, bay leaf and salt/black pepper to taste. Sprinkle with vinegar and 1 1/2 cups water or chicken broth. Set the slow cooker on HIGH for 4-5 hours or LOW for 7-8 hours.
  2. Chicken is done when thigh pieces, pricked with a fork at their thickest, yield clear yellow (rather than pink) juice. Garnish with cilantro if desired.

Notes

Flavorful, moist set-it-forget-it chicken with sweet potatoes, olives, dried plums and oregano.
