Slow Cooker Maple Mustard Chicken

Yield 4 Servings

We all have those days - you know the ones where you walk in the door at 5:00 with starving kids, and nothing ready to eat. Yeah, those days aren't fun at all, and usually end up in a drive through.

So, what I like to do on the days when I know I'm going to be busy and home late is.. use my slow cooker! It's literally a life saver to many busy women out there. 

I made this one the other night, and everyone loved it. My 3-year-old finished before everyone else - and that says a lot!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Chicken Thighs (skinless, boneless)

  • 2 tbsps Maple Syrup

  • 1/3 cup Dijon Mustard

  • 1 tsp Dried Basil

  • 1 tsp Paprika

  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

  • 8 cups Green Beans (washed and trimmed)

  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  1. Place chicken thighs in the slow cooker. Add in maple syrup, dijon mustard, dried basil, paprika, sea salt and black pepper. Use a spatula to toss well until chicken is coated. Cook on low for 6 - 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
  2. Right before eating, place the green beans in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let beans simmer for 3 - 4 minutes, or just until soft. Drain the water off, then toss in olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  3. Divide green beans between plates and top with maple mustard chicken. Enjoy!

Notes

No Chicken Thighs

Use chicken breast or drumsticks instead.

Save Time

Combine the chicken and marinade in a large zip lock baggie ahead of time. Shake well to mix and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours or freeze.

More Carbs

Serve with rice, sweet potato or quinoa.
