I admit it. I am in love with slow cookers. They are easy to use and clean. The results are fantastic. And the aroma….I just love the aromas that fill the house as the slow cooker does its thing. Today I wanted to share with you one of my family's favorite slow cooker dinners, my slow cooker Greek chicken and potatoes recipe. It is bursting with flavor and is pretty easy to make. I like using the chicken thighs in the slow cooker because they hold up so well. Breast meat tends to dry out if your not super careful, but not the thighs. They stay juicy and flavorful. I hope you enjoy our slow cooker Greek chicken and potatoes recipe.

  1. Season the chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and paprika.  Squeeze lemon juice over the thighs.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan.  Brown the chicken thighs and then transfer to the crock pot, skin side up, on top of the potatoes.
  3. Cook on high for approximately 3 hours.
  4. Remove the chicken and potatoes from the cooker and reduce the juice until it thickens.
  5. Plate the dish. We used a bed of sauteed spinach to start. The potatoes came next, and finally the chicken. Drizzle the reduced cooking juice over the entire plate.
