Slow Cooked Bourbon Chicken

bourbon chicken thighs in slow cooker

Chicken cooked in the slow cooker can tend to get dried out if you use breast meat. That’s why we prefer thighs… but either will do! Either way, you’ll love the sweet taste the bourbon brings to this dish. It’s tasty and can be served over anything. Rice… yes! Pasta… most definitely. Steamed veggies… why not?!?
