  1. Check 8 skinless chicken thighs
  2. Check kosher salt and pepper
  3. Check 2 onions, quartered
  4. Check 1 pound small red potatoes
  5. Check 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  6. Check 12 cloves garlic, peeled
  7. Check 1 orange, cut into 1/4-inch rings
  8. Check 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  9. Check 1 tablespoon honey
  10. Check 8 sprigs thyme


  1. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. In the bowl of a slow cooker, combine the chicken, onions, potatoes, squash, garlic, orange, broth, honey, and thyme.
  3. Set the slow cooker to high and cook, covered, until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 2½ to 3 hours. Divide the chicken mixture into individual bowls.
  4. Note: This recipe was tested in a 6-quart slow cooker. Because different models cook at different rates, the cooking time above is presented as a range. Check for doneness at the low end of the range (but not before, as the escaped heat will significantly slow the cooking). If the food is not done, cover and cook to the end of the suggested time range. If using a slow-cooker smaller than 6 quarts, the cooking time may take an additional hour or more, and results may vary.
