Chicken Thigh Crock Pot Dinner

A cheap crock pot recipe.

6 Chicken Thighs ( I bought the bag at Wal-mart)

1 bag of Green Giant Pasta, Broccoli, Carrots, and Cheese Sauce

1 can of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese soup

Tablespoon of Italian Seasoning

Tablespoon of Roasted Garlic and Bell Pepper Seasoning

1 Chopped garlic

salt and pepper to taste

In the morning around 10:00 I add frozen thighs and seasonings to my crock pot. Cooked on high until 2:30. Drain all the grease off and remove skins if you want. I strained the grease and put the seasonings back in. Then add the Green Giant bag and cheese soup cook until done. They were done around 4:00 came out perfect. Serve with rolls.

Chicken Thighs

Chefs are now starting to use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast.

Food Safty With Raw Chicken

Anytime you have raw chicken you are cooking "do not wash it" you will be spreading raw juices from chicken all over your kitchen. You will be spreading food bacteria over your counters. Just make sure chicken is cooked to the right temperature,165 ºF.

      Melissa, Less time in cooking the thighs if they're not frozen. They have the bone. Thanks for stopping by.

      Are the thighs bone-in or no? And what would I need to do if they were not frozen?

      Cyndi10, your welcome. I often replace chicken breast with the thighs in many recipes. Thanks so much for stopping by.

      sgbrown, I like chicken thighs and legs more than white meat but we eat both. Thank you for stopping by and for the vote and share.

      I like thighs the best, as well, but most of the recipes call for the breast. This is a great one. I love that you just leave in the crockpot and let it take care of itself. Thank you for sharing it with us.

      This sounds delicious! I prefer chicken thighs to breasts as they are more flavorful and moist to me too. I haven't used my crockpot in quite some time now. I need to break it out and give this a try! Voted up, useful and sharing! :)

      I think most women aren't at home at 10:00 AM or 2:30 PM. Most of us are at work early. I have to be at work by 6:45 AM. Lots of my coworkers are there before 6 or shortly after. Sometimes we get a few minutes in the middle of the day to go home or run errands, but not always. Lots of moms who work where I do bring their kids to school with them. If their kids are school aged they catch the school bus from the school's transportation dept. If they're little ones, they stay with mom or dad while they work.

      This looks like a good recipe for the weekend. Weekends are pretty busy for people with school age children too, but there's usually a little more time. I like the vegetables you're adding. This looks like a great comfort meal. Voted up and useful.

      I know those crock pots are hard to clean and I do have new ones but we always seem to use this one. It is hot humidity is 90% here today. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment and vote.

      We had one of those old crock pots also but now have one with a removable liner. So much easier to clean! I should start using mine again now that it is summer-time to cut down on electricity bills. Your recipe sounds good. Thanks! Voted up and useful.

      Victora Lynn, The old rival is hard to clean and not as nice as the new ones. We also like the size because there is just two of us. I also have this idea that it cooks better than the new slow cookers.Thanks so much for stopping by I appreciate it.

      I am definitely saving this one! I prefer chicken thighs, too, and am starting to use them more often in recipes. This looks wonderful. My mom had an old rival, too, but it was bright orange rather than green. She bequeathed it to me, but I eventually got one with the removable interior, as it was a pain to clean.

      I love cooking with my slow cooker. So easy and makes the flavors so good.... Thanks for this recipe! Oh, and I love the photo of your counter and all the colorful things on it!

      Suki C you don't have to add any liquid when you add the frozen chicken. Love slow cooking. They have to be a working mother's best friend.

      Thanks for stopping by and signing my hub.

      This sounds good, I'd like to try it but we can't get that kind of soup over here so I'll have to substitute something like mushroom soup instead.

      At the beginning of the recipe do you just put in the frozen chicken and seasoning with no added liquid? (I'm new to slow cooking by the way & not tried chicken in it yet!)
