My sisters and I enjoy this dinner weekly because it’s so easy and absolutely incredible. Served with a green salad and warm cauliflower rice it’s basically the only winter chicken recipe you’ll ever need! I’ll usually prepare it the night before: make the marinade and throw it in the slow cooker with the chicken thighs, prunes, and olives. The flavor really infuses the chicken and makes it even better! In the morning I’ll set the slow-cooker to low and leave it for about 4 hours and dinner is ready!
