We are lucky to have one of the most beautiful places in the world in our backyard. Now that Spring is upon us (yay) and ski season is dwindling we can take day trips for biking, hiking and shopping in beautiful Banff, Alberta. Best part is there is Chicken in the slow cooker so when you get home dinner is ready. Well maybe not the best part…but makes a day much easier.
The most important ingredient is the sherry. Honestly I don’t know anything about sherry other than it tastes good and it enhances the flavour in recipes.
- 1 small onion chopped up
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 6 marinated skinless chicken thighs
- 1-2 large sweet potatoes peeled and cut and cubed
- 1-2 red skinned potatoes cut and cubed (optional)
- 2 cups of frozen or fresh kale
- 1 cup of frozen corn
- 1/4 -1/2 cup sherry
- 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
Get the skillet out and start frying up the onion until translucent; add the marinated chicken and brown both sides
While the chicken and onion are cooking get the slow cooker out and add the sherry, sweet potato, frozen corn and kale.
When the chicken mixture has finished browning, about 5 minutes put the chicken in the slow cooker and for more flavour make sure you add the onion mixture. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and granulated garlic; close the lid and cook it on low for 8 – 10 hrs.
