We recently made this delicious Filipino Chicken recipe and it is a keeper! Cooking boneless chicken thighs in the slow cooker is a great way to use this cut of meat. Boneless chicken thighs are less expensive than the ever popular boneless chicken breasts but admittedly, they are a little less “elegant” to cook with. They look messier, are a bit harder to cut up raw and so people sometimes avoid them. But they are a terrific cut that stays juicy and flavorful through all kinds of cooking. We have lots of easy dinner recipes that make use of boneless chicken thighs: some in the oven, some in the skillet, and of course, in the trusty slow cooker as with this recipe. Having the meat cook all day in the slow cooker means tender, fall apart chicken. In this Filipino chicken recipe, you will also have TONS of flavor from the simple garlic and soy based sauce. Yum!
The recipe is super easy and is great for both experienced and inexperienced cooks alike. It has become a hit with my daughter and her college roommates and check out this comment posted on the recipe page from Frank:
“Easy to make, easier to eat…just the thing a Dad that doesn’t know the first thing about cooking needs.“
Served over some rice, couscous or starch of choice, along with a simple veggie, and you have a complete meal. Get the easy recipe below:
