The Easiest Herbed Chicken Recipe Ever (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Wow, having an extra baby while you have a spirited toddler actually makes this exponentially harder instead of proportionally. Crunchy Baby No 2 has survived almost three weeks. We are not getting a lot of sleep here but we are otherwise very happy.

My kitchen adventures are now greatly limited so I have to wait for weekends to experiment with long recipes. Weekday meals are reduced to quick and easy dishes.

This one took all of 8 minutes to get in the crockpot and 6 hours and a side salad later, dinner was on the table. It was ridiculously easy.

Wash and pat dry some chicken pieces. I used thighs but this works just as well with drumsticks.

You can place some onions or potatoes in the bottom of a crockpot. Or if you were in a hurry like me today, crumple up some foil. This prevents the chicken from getting soggy in the accumulating liquid.

  1. Wow!! Simple recipe. On seeing the picture itself i could guess how tasty it might be. Cooking chicken alone takes few hours. Cooking chicken in low flame adds more taste. Definitely i would try this and come back again here to share my tasty experience. Thanks for the recipe.
