I’m back with another ‘I tried this recipe’ for you today, another chicken recipe! I’m already feeling good about making some new dishes and putting all those cookbooks I own to work!
This recipe is adapted from the I Quit Sugar Slow Cooker Cookook by Sarah Wilson. I love my slow cooker, even as it’s getting warmer it still makes for an easy meal! This dinner was super easy to make and I do love a meal I can just chuck on and forget about.
One-pot apple cider chicken
Serves 6, adapted from I Quit Sugar Slow Cooker Cookbook
1kg chicken thighs
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
juice of half a lemon
2-3 cloves crushed garlic
2 shallots, thinly sliced
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
Put the chicken in the base of the slow cooker.
Combine everything else (except the parsley) in a bowl and then pour over the chicken.
Put the lid on and cook for 3 hours on high or 6 on low.
Once cooked, shred the chicken and serve with the sauce ladled over the top and garnished with parsley.
Serve with steamed greens or rice as a side. I served mine with these green beans with lemon and herbs from Fat Mum Slim.
This is a super easy meal and was delicious as well! Plus the fact that it’s healthy is pretty nice too. I’d never cooked chicken in the slow cooker before and was amazed at how beautifully cooked it was and how easily it shredded!
This meal got rave reviews from my husband (he described it as ‘salt and vinegar chicken’) and I will definitely be making it again!
