This is a great recipe to throw in the crockpot on the morning of a busy day. The extra effort in the morning will be worth it when dinnertime rolls around and your house becomes filled with a delicious aroma. Chicken thighs work best in this recipe because they’re flavourful and hold up well to long, slow cooking. Not browning the meat makes the sauce more delicious with juices from the chicken adding flavour.
