Crock Pot Girls' Mediterranean Chicken

Have you heard about the Crock Pot Girls? It's such a great idea- 3 moms decided to make a Facebook page to share crockpot recipes, and before they knew it.. a MILLION FOLLOWERS!
The wall has a sense of 'community'. People can post recipes, or requests recipes, and almost instantaneously there will be 5-10 responses.
If you're not into Facebook, they also have a website-

Originally, I was planning to make this recipe tomorrow because I didn't have time to put it together before class.. But then.. the Franc/Block Wall/Fire Dept incident happened and voila! I was home early enough to make a crock pot meal.

Mediterranean Chicken
adapted from the Crock Pot Girls' Recipe
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup olives (I used pitted kalamata & a few green)
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, in oil (julienned or chopped)
  • 1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts
  • 2 T. lemon juice 
  • 1 1/2 t. chopped garlic 
  • 1 t. Greek seasoning (from WorldMarket)
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper
  • 2-3 sprigs thyme
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  1. Place all ingredients in the crockpot. Cook on low for 5-7 hours.
Our spunky little girl.

What is the Franc/Block Wall/Fire Dept incident, you ask? Well, let me tell you.
Franc is our dog. She is a delightful, hilarious, sweet little creature.. except for the fact that she's a neurotic little turd. She stuck her head in a drain in our block wall and got stuck. Like, head in the front yard-rump in the backyard stuck. She yelped her little heart out until a neighbor called 911. The police & fire department were at out house chipping away at the wall until she was released. Luckily, this little fiasco had a happy ending- she's totally fine, and napping on the couch next to me right now. Ah, the joys of puppy-motherhood...
