For an easy dinner made gluten-free but full of flavor, here’s my Crockpot Chicken Thighs with Green Chiles.




  1. Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Use tongs to add the chicken thighs to the pan. Place a lid on the skillet and cook for 3 minutes each side, turning the thighs over one time to cook evenly.
  3. Transfer the chicken to a 5-quart slow-cooker.
  4. Pour the green chiles over the chicken and sprinkle on the taco seasoning. Add the sprig of fresh rosemary on top.
  5. Cover the slow-cooker and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
  6. Serve hot with your choice of cauliflower rice, cooked brown or white rice, or your favorite side dish. Sliced avocado makes a great topping!


You can easily double this recipe and freeze the leftovers.
