5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Cowboy Chicken (Paleo / GFCF / Gluten-free)

Today was the day of the world's easiest food. For real. I tried a new crockpot recipe with only five ingredients AND I made brownies completely at random with the goal of using as few ingredients as possible. Easy food FTW!

Probably the best part of this dinner was that it was DELICIOUS. Like, shockingly delicious. I have no idea how so few ingredients can taste SO good, but man did they. I served this over leftover quinoa, with a bit of cilantro on top, and it was perfect. Perfect! Everyone inhaled it, even though it was a bit spicy. So good. 

Just a note here, though. The type of salsa you use will completely change your flavor. I used an organic salsa from Trader Joe's that has a very restaurant salsa kind of flavor and a medium spice level. 

5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Cowboy Chicken (Paleo / GFCF / Gluten-free)

1 package of chicken thighs
1 1/2 cups salsa
1/2 cup gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp honey
3 tsp Dijon mustard
1 14 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained (optional)

1. Place chicken in the bottom of a crockpot. Whisk remaining ingredients together in a separate bowl and pour over chicken. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Shred chicken with a fork and serve over quinoa.

Could I use chicken breast for this recipe as well?

Oh definitely! I just buy thighs because they are cheaper ;)

I have like 5 packages of chicken thighs in my freezer and have had no idea what to do with them. Thanks! I am going to be trying a lot more of your recipes, because I am going to slowly make my family give up gluten without them knowing. Let's see how this goes.
