Slow cooker chicken with carrots and potatoes.
Oh, the wonderful slow cooker. It is one of the best creations for the busy person. Nothing beats coming home from a long day to smell the aroma of chicken and herbs filling the air. This one is so easy and my family loves it! And it's defiantly very budget friendly as it uses chicken thighs which are very inexpensive!
6 chicken thighs
1 pound of small red potatoes
1 lemon sliced
1 small bag of baby carrots (or whole carrots diced into quarters)
1 pound of sweet sausage links or kielbasi
1 Tsp. thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. of oil
In a pan, add your oil and brown your chicken thighs on all sides. Remove from heat. Slice the sausage or kielbasi into 1" pieces and brown. Remove from heat. If there is casing, remove this. In slow cooker add potatoes and carrots. Next add the sausage or kielbasi. Add sliced lemons. Place chicken on top. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
