This slow cooker chicken thighs paleo recipe with garlic honey is a great easy one pot meal that can be versatile so you can change ingredients to your liking. Here where we live in Utah we have a lot of snow recently (Jan. 2016) including southern and central where there typically isn’t a ton of snow. Also, there were the huge storms on the East Coast. My friend who lives in Arizona got snow. This is a big winter and you know what this weather makes me want?
Yummy, warm food.
There is nothing like being by a fireplace or warm home with a bowl of delicious chicken and rice. I love this recipe because it has your meat, veggies, and sauce all in one pot and it ends up with a sweet and tangy flavor and is so easy but doesn’t have all the questionable ingredients that similar recipes have. You can also change up the ingredients and try other things you like, such as green beans, sweet or white potatoes, snap peas, butternut squash, etc. – really almost any vegetable will work and you can change up the flavor just by experimenting with the vegetables.
