Chicken thighs, kidney beans and a delicious sauce slow cook to perfection for a home-made meal your family can’t resist!  Serve it over your favorite hot cooked pasta, polenta or even rice!

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thigh

  • 1 bag (about 7 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

    Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Place the chicken into a 6-quart slow cooker.  Add the beans, sauce and thyme and stir to coat.

    Just made this recipe tonight and my boyfriend and I loved it! The only thing I would change is substituting another ingredient for the white kidney beans -- I'm thinking perhaps mushrooms. The flavor of the beans just didn't seem to mesh well with the rest of the dish. Otherwise it was super yummy! Will be making again.
