Every time I make chicken thighs I think to myself, “I should buy these more often.” They’re a great cut of meat because they’re inexpensive (I got mine on sale for .89 per pound), they have a ton of meat on them and they’re tender and full of flavor. Chicken thighs really are a frugal girl’s best friend.
Also, I love using my slow cooker in the summertime because it lets me get dinner on the table without heating the house up. This recipe is great because it’s easy and will make your house smell awesome. You could even make up a few extra batches and put them in the freezer for busy nights.
