Crock Pot Chicken

Chicken and thyme work wonderfully together and with the slow cooking of the crock pot the flavors infuse to creat this melt in the mouth dish.

I used chicken pieces as that was what was on special this week - but feel free to use legs or thighs or whatever you have on hand.

I did not have fresh thyme so used dried but it you want to use fresh - double the quantity and then check about an hour before serving as you may need to add some more.

If you don't have access to a garlic clove - use about a teaspoon of the bought paste.

Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours - know your own crock pot! Many of the newer ones cook hotter and thus faster and you may need to reduce the time! And on some of the older models you may be able to happily cook for a few more hours without detriment.


Crock Pot Thyme Chicken


2 cup chicken stock
½ cup white wine
½ tbl dried thyme
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 lemon (cut in half)
3 lbs (1.5kg) Chicken Pieces


1. Place everything except the lemon and chicken in the Crock Pot.

2. Give the lemon a bit of a squeeze into the crock and then add the entire lemon (yes the entire thing).

3. Mix it all together.

4. Add the chicken and stir around as best you can to coat all in the liquid.

5. Cook on low for 7-8 hours (see note above).

6. To serve I poured out some of the liquid into a saucepan, added about a tablespoon of corn starch (cornflour) that was disolved in water and brought it to the boil for a thick, thyme gravy.

Notes Serves 4-6 Serve with rice or mased potato and vegetables.
