Crock Pot Greek Chicken Thighs
Crock Pot Greek Chicken Thighs are moist, tender and delicious. I don’t know why boneless chicken thighs aren’t as popular as chicken breasts in my neck of the woods. They’ve got a bad reputation for no good reason as far as I am concerned.
When I say chicken thighs have a bad reputation in my neck of the woods what I should really being saying is in my family. Out of the seven adults only 3 of us will eat dark meat. Less than half.
I’m not sure what the problem is. Chicken thighs are moist and have so much more flavor than chicken breast. I grew up eating dark chicken meat.
My mother struggled to feed a large family. She had a very strict food budget. She meal planned like there was no tomorrow.
Things haven’t changed much since I was a kid. Chicken thighs are still cheaper than chicken breasts and as far as I’m concerned still taste better.
So what makes this crock pot chicken thigh recipe Greek? The flavors of the ingredients do. When you slow cook chicken with potatoes, onions, garlic, oregano and olive oil something magical happens.
The flavor combination is out of this world. Add the moist and tender chicken thighs and you have a budget friendly dinner recipe your family is going to love!
