Ingredients

4 chicken thighs, bone-in, about 1 to 1 ½ lb

1 tsp kosher salt, plus more for seasoning

¼ tsp black pepper, plus more for seasoning

2 tbsp olive oil

1 c red onion, 1-inch dice

1 ½ c carrots, 1-inch pieces

1 lb baby red potatoes, cut in half

1 ear corn, cut into 4 pieces

2 tbsp garlic, roughly chopped

1 ¼ c unsalted chicken stock

3 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 tbsp lemon juice, plus 4 wedges for serving

4 sprigs thyme

2 sprigs rosemary

How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Step 1: From the chicken thighs, trim the excess skin and fat. Entirely season the thighs with salt and pepper.

Step 2: Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken to the skillet skin side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until golden.

Step 3: Turn the chicken on the other side and cook for another 2 minutes. When done, transfer the chicken to a clean plate.

Step 4: Into a slow cooker, add the onion, carrot, potatoes, corn, and garlic.

Step 5: Place a tsp salt, half a tsp pepper, chicken stock, flour, and lemon juice in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk until well mixed, then add this to the slow cooker.

Step 6: Finally, add in the chicken, thyme, and rosemary.

Step 7: Cover the slow cooker. Set on high and cook for 2 to 4 hours. Or on low for 4 to 6 hours, or until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through.

Step 8: When done, transfer the chicken and vegetables to serving plates.

Step 9: Through a strainer, pour the cooking liquid. Whisk and season. Serve alongside the chicken with lemon wedges.

Note:

If you want crispy chicken skin, place the chicken after slow cooking to a foil-lined sheet pan. Lightly brush with olive oil and place in the oven about 10 inches away from the upper heating element. Broil for about 3 to 7 minutes.
