¼ tsp black pepper plus more for seasoning

2 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil

1 c. (120 grams) red onion 1” dice

1 ear corn cut into 4 pieces

2 tbsp (20 grams) garlic roughly chopped

How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Step 1: From the chicken thighs, trim the excess skin and fat.

Step 2: With salt and pepper, season both sides of the chicken thighs.

Step 3: Add 2 tbsp oil in a heated large skillet. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in the chicken skin side down and cook for about 5 minutes until golden.

Step 4: Flip the chicken thigh and continue to cook the other side for 2 minutes more. When done, remove the chicken thighs from the skillet and onto a clean plate.

Step 5: Into a slow cooker, add the onion, carrot, potatoes, corn, and garlic.

Step 6: Whisk a tsp salt, half a tsp pepper, chicken stock, flour, and lemon juice in a medium-sized bowl until combined. Then, pour this into the slow cooker.

Step 7: Add in the chicken, thyme, and rosemary.

Step 8: Cover the slow cooker and set on high. Cook for 2 to 4 hours. Or on low for 4 to 6 hours until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender.

Step 9: When done, place the cooked chicken and vegetables on a serving plate.

Step 10: Through a strainer, pour the cooking liquid. Whisk to mix and season according to taste.

Step 11: With the chicken dinner, serve the sauce and lemon wedges. Enjoy!

Note:

If you want a crispy chicken after slow cooking, broil the chicken. First, transfer the chicken on a foil-lined sheet and lightly brush with olive oil. Broil for about 3 to 7 minutes, about 10 inches away from the upper heating element.
