Slow Cooker Chicken and Vegetables

Ingredients

  • 3-4 chicken thighs*
  • 8 ounces of Brussels sprouts
  • 8 carrots, peeled and very roughly cut 
  • 4-5 red potatoes (any sort of potato will work!)
  • 1.5 cups low sodium chicken broth (veggie broth would work too)
  • 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp garlic powder (approx!)
  • 1/2 ground black pepper (approx!)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano (approx!)
  • 2 tbsp HONEY — only for babies 12 months and older!**

*You can use boneless skinless thighs. You can use drumsticks as well. Breasts would work too but I can’t guarantee they’ll be as moist.

**I would not use any sort of sugar at all! Just leave out the sweetness altogether! Keep Reading!...
