Active: 25 min Total: 8 hr
Slow cook chicken thighs in these flavorful ingredients and you create a magically easy dish. If you don't own a slow cooker, this dish is worth getting one. Pair it with our healthier take on potato salad. We've discovered that Greek yogurt, dill, and lemon juice make for a deliciously creamy dressing.
