Garlic Parmesan Chicken....Slow Cooker Style!

Garlic Parmesan Chicken

I Hardly ever have time to cook because I work a lot of hours, So the Crock-Pot has become my best friend! I love that I can throw everything I need into it and by the time I get home from work, dinner is almost complete!

I am also a big fan of cooking with Garlic, so anything I find that includes it is an absolute plus for me. I found this amazing recipe on Delish and just had to share it with you. I just wanted to give credit where credit was due!

First off you want to gather the ingredients:

You will need
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2lb. bone-in chicken thigh
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
1lb baby red potatoes, squared 
2 Tbsp butter
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
2tbsp chopped fresh thyme
grated parmesan, for serving
chopped fresh parsley, for serving


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil (1/3 cup). Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and sear until golden, 3-4 minutes, then flip and sear 3 more minutes.

Meanwhile, in a 6-quart slow cooker, toss potatoes with olive oil (2tbsp), butter, garlic, and thyme. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add chicken to slow cooker and toss gently, then cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours, until potatoes are tender and chicken is fully cooked.

Garnish with parmesan and parsley serve and enjoy!
