Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken and Green Beans
These Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken is drenched in a dreamy white wine lemon sauce and smothered with capers, artichokes, mushrooms, and green beans. It’s a healthy and super flavorful one pot meal!
One of the best things about using the slow cooker is how easy it is. There’s not much more to it than dumping a bunch of ingredients in a bowl and turning a knob. Of course, it’s still possible to mess up a slow cooker recipe. I know, because I’ve done it. Twice.
Luckily, I learned from my mistake and am willing to share this super secret tip to not screwing up a slow cooker recipe. Are you ready? Here it is:
Remember to plug the darn thing in.
That’s right. I forgot to plug my crock pot in not once, but TWICE.
The first time it happened I had a crock pot full of ground turkey for lettuce wraps. I didn’t discover my mistake until I lifted the lid to dish it out. We had pizza that night.
The second time, I had this Mediterranean Chicken and Green Beans in the slow cooker. Luckily, this time I caught my mistake within 30 minutes and was able to save dinner. And thank goodness I did, because this is a dinner worth remembering.
This chicken is loaded with mediterranean flavor, full of bright lemon, salty capers, and sweet sundried tomatoes. Luckily, it’s as healthy as it is delicious. The green beans and mushrooms round out this dish, and provide a base for the tender chicken thighs. Everything is drenched in the lemony tomato and white wine sauce, which is made even better by it’s long bath in the slow cooker.
You can serve this meal all on it’s own, or pair it with pasta or rice to keep it gluten free. A hunk of crusty bread to sop up all the juices is certainly an added bonus, though not required.
Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing this recipe over on Capital Style. They’re sharing healthy recipes from local Columbus bloggers all this month, so be sure to hop on over to get the recipe! Oh, and don’t forget to plug your slow cooker in! Just a little pro tip I learned somewhere.
Yup, been there. This dish looks absolutely mouth-watering. Those green beans are calling my name. Pinned.
Thanks Jennie! So glad I’m not the only one!
I have done the same thing! I was trying to be a good wife and leave dinner for my husband in the crockpot before I left for a business trip, only to discover that I never turned the dang thing on!
It’s such a bad feeling! It does make me feel better that I’m not the only one though!
Courtney, you crack me up! fortunately, my slow cooker is digital so I have to set it, which reminds me to plug in the darn thing. 🙂 love this slow-cooker-mediterranean-chicken recipe!!
Oh, that would be nice! Does the digital also allow you to schedule when it will turn on/off? I may have to invest in that!
