Flood Chicken Dinner

Happy Monday Nerd & Lacers!

Hope you had a great weekend! I know I did (rolls eyes). We had a little flood here at my house. My 4 year old forgot to turn off a faucet and now we have some major water damage being taken care of. So while we were cleaning up and dealing with the insurance adjusters, and remediation specialist stomping through the house, I needed to put together a quick and easy dinner. That’s why we are calling this Flood Chicken Dinner.

I honestly wasn’t prepared for all this, so I grabbed what I had and threw it in the crockpot. And it turned out finger lickin’ good! I was one happy mama while eating this and forgot about the chaos going on in the house. Some times a simple dish is the best thing. Truly, food for the soul.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 potatoes peeled and quartered
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 1 qt. container of Vegetable Broth (I always use low sodium)
  • 4 cloves of garlic crushed
  • ½ bag of baby carrots
  • Seasonings: Sea Salt, Trader Joe’s (TJ’) 21 Seasoning Salute, TJ’s Poultry Rub, garlic powder, and turmeric

Place the crushed garlic and carrots in the crock pot, then layer the chicken thighs over them.

Then season the chicken to your hearts content (easy on the salt, remember the stock has salt in it).

Then cover the chicken with the sliced onions, then the potatoes on top of that.

Pour the whole container of stock in the pot and cook on low for 8 hours.

It turned out so yum, that by the time I got back home from grabbing heavy duty garbage bags at the store, half of it was gone. So I apologize on behalf of my hungry family for this poor picture of the completed meal.

I shredded the chicken thighs by fork, and then I ladled some stock over it…. AMAZING! It definitely was WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!
