Slow Cooker Creamy Mustard Chicken – Why We Love It

There’s something magical about slow-cooked meals. They bring out the best in every ingredient, resulting in tender, succulent chicken that practically melts in your mouth. The star of this show is undoubtedly the creamy mustard sauce that takes this dish to a whole new level of yumminess. It’s rich, tangy, and oh-so-comforting!

Ingredients – Simple, Yet Flavorful:

Let’s talk about the star-studded lineup of ingredients for this delightful dish. You’ll need just a handful of kitchen staples to create this masterpiece:

  1. Butter: A touch of butter adds a lovely richness and helps to brown the chicken beautifully.
  2. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs: Chicken thighs are perfect for slow cooking as they stay juicy and tender throughout the process.
  3. Chicken Broth: The key to building a flavorful foundation for the sauce. It infuses the chicken with a savory goodness that you can’t resist.
  4. Dijon Mustard: This ingredient brings a delightful zing to the dish. Its subtle spiciness and tanginess elevate the chicken to new heights.
  5. Heavy Cream: Creaminess galore! The heavy cream creates a luscious, velvety texture that coats the chicken with perfection.
  6. Cornstarch: Our secret weapon for thickening the sauce and making it beautifully cling to the chicken.

Cooking Up a Storm:

Now, let’s dive into the cooking process, shall we? You’ll be amazed at how simple and fuss-free this recipe is.

Step 1: Start by heating up a bit of butter in a large skillet until it shimmers with anticipation. This is where the magic begins!

Step 2: Season your chicken thighs with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Then, add them to the skillet and let them sizzle until they turn a gorgeous golden brown. We’re not fully cooking them yet – just getting that fantastic sear.

Step 3: Time to introduce your chicken to its cozy slow cooker home. Place the beautifully seared chicken thighs in the slow cooker, seared side up, ready to soak up all the creamy goodness that’s coming their way!

Step 4: Now, let’s work on that incredible sauce! In the same skillet you used for searing the chicken, add some chicken broth and the star of our show – the Dijon mustard. Watch as they come together in a harmonious simmer.

Step 5: But we’re not stopping there! Pour in the heavy cream and sprinkle in the cornstarch. Give it all a good stir until the sauce thickens up into a velvety dream.

Step 6: Now comes the grand finale – pour that luscious sauce over the waiting chicken in the slow cooker. It’s a sight to behold, and the aroma will have your mouth watering instantly.

Step 7: Set your slow cooker to low, and let it work its magic for the next 5 hours. Patience is a virtue, but trust us, it will be worth the wait!
