There Is Power in the Dark Side of Chicken

Editor’s note: Mike’s blog post for this recipe references two of my favorite things: Star Wars and chicken thighs. For this recipe, the Dad Cooks Dinner blogger adapted a recipe from California’s patron saint of local, seasonal cooking, Alice Waters, to the slow cooker.-- Jane

I am a fan of the Dark Side…of the chicken. When you look at the dark side, careful you must be. For the dark side looks back. This is a good thing for slow cooker chicken. Slow cookers plus chicken breasts equal dry, stringy meat. But chicken thighs...oh, glorious dark meat, falling off the bone.
