Slow Cooker Chicken with Spinach and Feta Recipe

Updated on July 23, 2015
Chicken, Spinach and feta with Wild Rice
Chicken, Spinach and feta with Wild Rice

This is a dish I threw together this week. I am generally a make-it-up-as-I-go-along cook, so try to make dishes with what ever I have in the house, usually it works! This is one of the times when it really, really worked. This dish turned out so yummy and it is super healthy really.

I love my slow cooker so much and it is always my go to item when I need to make a meal, but don't have much time! I always find that meat cooks so well in a slow cooker, so it was literally falling apart when I served the dish.

      Oh boy, all my favorite ingredients - chicken, spinach, and feta! And such a warm, comforting meal for the cold days of winter. After keeping my slow cooker in the cupboard for ages, I am finally putting it to use and must try this one!

      I am big on slow cooking just because it is so easy. You can throw together a wonderful meal in 15 minutes or less. The only bad thing I can find with slow cooking is you have to smell it all day long. It is torture when you work at home like me.
