The soft, comforting flavors of chicken that has been cooked for hours are, in my opinion, unparalleled. That is just what you get with Slow Cooker Million Dollar Chicken—a meal that brings the bounty of tradition to your very own kitchen. Although its exact beginnings are murky, with rumours circulating that it originated in the kitchens of creative home chefs who wanted to elevate the simple chicken dish, one thing is certain: this recipe is sure to satisfy. When you want to surprise your loved ones or when you want to wow guests with a special dinner, this is the sort of meal to whip up. The flavors of slow cooking will greet them as soon as they walk through the door.
A mound of buttery mashed potatoes or, for a lighter option, a fresh green salad, would be a wonderful accompaniment to this delicious chicken. Spoon some of that delicious gravy on top. To add a genuine Midwest touch, pair it with handmade dinner rolls, which are ideal for soaking up any excess sauce.

Recipe Name: Million Dollar Chicken in a Slow Cooker

Three pounds of skinless, bone-in chicken thighs, two teaspoons of kosher salt, and one teaspoon of black pepper make up the six servings.
-Pepper, 1/2 teaspoon
Onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon
half a cup of sliced unsalted butter (one stick)
– 4 minced garlic cloves
1/4 cup of homemade chicken broth is ideal.
heavy cream, 1/4 cup
– Shredded cheddar cheese, measuring 1 cup
the garnishing amount is 1/4 cup chopped parsley
If thickening is necessary, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch.
Here are the directions:
Make sure the chicken thighs are well-coated with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and paprika. (Powder before inserting is optional.)
2. Evenly put the seasoned chicken at the base of the slow cooker.
Third, use butter pads to smear the chicken, and then top with chopped garlic.
4. Carefully pour the chicken stock over the chicken, being sure not to remove any spices.
5 Make sure the chicken is very tender—almost coming off the bone—by setting the slow cooker to low and cooking for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
6. Gently fold in the heavy cream and cheddar cheese until they melt and blend into the sauce, which should take around 15 minutes before serving.
7. To make a slurry using cornstarch and a little water, add it to the slow cooker and stir until thickened. For a few further minutes, let it boil until it thickens.
8. Lastly, before serving, sprinkle chopped parsley over the dish for a vibrant and fresh garnish.
Tips and Variations: – Every dish calls for a little bit of creativity. A teaspoon of red pepper flakes may be added to the seasoning for an extra heat.
– A Cut the butter in half if you’re managing your fat consumption; it will still have the same reassuring effect. – Also, if you’re short on heavy cream, you can use milk instead; it won’t be as creamy, but it will do the work.
– A Feel free to substitute the cheese that suits you best. If you have some nice Gruyère or Pepper Jack cheese on hand, this meal will be transformed.
