You can never have enough slow cooker recipes in my opinion! I would use my slow cooker every day if I could find enough variety in the meals I usually cook in it. That is my mission this year, to come up with as many different, (but delicious) clean slow cooker meals.

This recipe turned out really well. I am usually not too adventurous when it comes to cooking but using fennel for the first time in my slow cooker really paid off.
This chicken is so flavourful and juicy, perfect over mashed sweet potatoes and steamed veggies. And the best thing about it is that you put in minimal effort but get out maximum flavour! Yum!
Helpful Note: I used chicken legs for this recipe because they are inexpensive and tasty but feel free to use chicken breasts instead.
