Chicken and a homemade tomato-garlic sauce cook together in this simple yet flavor healthy (whole30, paleo) slow cooker recipe.
Cookbook recipe!! In less than one week my cookbook will officially be released! Save-the-date folks – Tuesday, September 19th! I’m happy to share this Slow Cooker Tomato-Garlic Chicken & Herbs recipe with you because it’s one of my favorite recipes from The Easy & Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook. My cookbook features 125 healthy recipes; everything from whole30, paleo, low-carb, gluten-free, etc. There’s even an entire section dedicated to pasta/rice and to beans/lentils. Not often you see those types of recipes here! The kindle version is currently on sale for $1.99. I will be sharing some of the recipes here to the blog so stay tuned.
While this is a very simple recipe (you literally just throw everything in, stir, and let it cook) it’s full of flavor. Of course you gotta like tomatoes and garlic. If you don’t have fresh herbs then use dried. The recipe calls for chicken thighs but like most of my recipes you can use your preferred cut of chicken. Thighs or dark meat in general work best in my opinion.
- 3 lbs chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
- ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tsp garlic salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp fresh basil
- 1 tbsp fresh oregano
- Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker and mix well.
- Cover and cook high 3-4 or low for 5-7 hours
Shred the meat or keep it whole.
Throw in a pound of diced potatoes or sweet potatoes to make this a more complete meal. Green beans would be a good addition as well.
You can serve many different ways. I like to serve this over mashed cauliflower.
