Slow Cooker 4 Herb Chicken | Personally Paleo

Getting home from work and having dinner ready to go makes me one happy gal. For this reason, the slow cooker is one of my all-time favorite kitchen appliances. I set up our weekly meal plan every Sunday and always plan to have a slow cooker dish one of the days (then I get to look forward to lazy evening!)

Chicken recipes are great because they are usually "set it and forget it." Yes, I enjoy my roasts just as much as the next person; however, to really seal in the flavor that usually means I will need to sear the sides. At 6am that is not high on my priority list. This whole chicken recipe involves tossing some herbs on it, along with a few tablespoons of butter/ghee... and that's about it!

If you are looking for an easy meal, to have a lazy day or just want something really tasty, this savory Slow Cooker Chicken is your answer!
