Mediterranean Slow Cooker Chicken

READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Recipe by gypsygal

This recipe came from the Hamilton Slow Cooker website and is a family favorite. It takes me 30 mins. to put it together in the slow cooker, either the night before or early in the morning. I serve it with a crusty bread to soak up the flavorful juice and a simple green salad. It's perfect to come home to after a work day &/or for a busy day. It not only tastes good but makes the whole house smell so good too.

This recipe worked very nicely for us. I amended it to cook in my electronic pressure cooker & it came out delicious. For a change I didn't have to change too much. I added some pickled asparagus just cause I needed to it use up. The only change I'd make next time is increase the thighs by 1 or 2 (1 1/2 lbs). Great recipe, thanks for sharing.
