Serves 4


8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

16 oz baby red potatoes, halved

16 oz baby carrots

16 oz green beans, trimmed

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves

For the sauce:

1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup ketchup

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp ground black pepper


In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, ketchup, garlic, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes and pepper.

Place chicken thighs, potatoes, carrots and soy sauce mixture into a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours, basting every hour. Add green beans during the last 30 minutes of cooking time.

Optional: Preheat oven to broil. Place chicken thighs onto a baking sheet, skin side up, and broil until crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Serve chicken immediately with potatoes, carrots and green beans, garnished with parsley, if desired.
