Slow Cooker French Butter Herb Chicken

Get those slow cookers out Autumn is here and it is time for those set it and forget it hearty home dinner we love so much. Here is one of my favorite meals to go to make in the slow cooker. From "Frozen to Table" in 6 1/2 hours. Full of great French herbs and savory flavors.

Full time 6 1/2 hours (can cook for 8 if desired)
Serves 4-6

The needs-

6 chicken thighs (frozen or fresh)
1 medium white onion, peeled and quartered
1/4 cup butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 tsp dried basil*
1 tsp dried lavender flowers*
1 tsp dried marjoram*
1 tsp dried rosemary*
1 tsp dried savory*
1 tsp dried tarragon*
1 tsp dried thyme*
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

*if desired you can substitute 1 1/2 tbsp Herbs de provence blend, it will slightly alter taste, but is the same herbs.

The know-

Place chicken in slow cooker.

Add in all herbs and seasonings.

Tuck the onion pieces around chicken.

Place butter across the highest parts of chicken.

Allow to cook on high for 6 hours, if using fresh chicken cook at low.

Move to serving platter using a slotted spoon, if desired strain pot broth and serve as a pan gravy. Cheers!
