Slow Cooker Maple Mustard Chicken

This is seriously some of the best chicken made in the slow cooker.  Even more, it’s also super extra easy to make.  Only 4 ingredients that you just dump in.  Can’t get easier than that!  The only thing I changed was the chicken.  I like to use chicken thighs (the ones from Costco for .99/lb) instead of chicken breasts.  The breasts tend to dry in the slow cooker.  The thighs, on the other hand, have a bit more fat on them which allows them to get so tender that they melt in your mouth.  Anyway, serve them over rice with lots of the sauce on top (the sauce is awesome!) and veggies on the side.  Enjoy!

-4 chicken thighs, skin-on, bone-in
-1/2 cup maple syrup
-1/3 cup stone-ground mustard
-2 Tbs quick-cooking tapioca
Coat slow cooker with cooking spray.  Place chicken on bottom.  Mix rest of ingredients and pour over chicken.  Cook on low for 3-4 hours.  Enjoy!
