Easy Chicken Thighs, Slow Cooker

Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

I’m lazy – I don’t brown the meat or the veg…. It was delicious anyway and I really like easy recipes.


  • 6 chicken thighs, skinned
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 tbs parsley
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbs tapioca
  • 1/2 cup (4oz, 120ml) white wine
  • 1/2 cup (4oz, 120ml) chicken stock
  • 2 tbs Dijon-style mustard


  • Combine onion, garlic, celery, carrot. herbs, tapioca, and wine.
  • Put in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Top with chicken, fitting it in carefully.
  • Combine mustard and chicken stock. Pour over the chicken.
  • Cook on low, 6 1/2 hours. Stir once after 4 or 5 hours if possible
  • Remove chicken, vegetables to a platter and serve.


Tapioca is a great thickener for slow cooker recipes. If you don’t have it stir in 2 tbs cornstarch dissolved in 3 tbs water 30 minutes before serving.
My chicken thighs are small – if yours are large only do 4.
