6 servings


  • 1 (1.5 pound) package small yellow-fleshed potatoes

  • 3 pounds skin-on, boneless chicken thighs

  • 3 small apples, peeled and diced

  • ½ medium sweet onion, diced

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • ½ cup honey

  • cup applesauce

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Chop any large potatoes in half.

  2. Place potatoes in the bottom of a slow cooker. Add chicken thighs on top of potatoes, and spread apples and onion over top.

  3. Mix chicken broth, honey, applesauce, garlic, salt, cinnamon, cumin, and pepper together in a bowl; pour over chicken mixture.

  4. Cook until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 4 to 6 hours on Low, or about 3 hours on High. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  5. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  6. Remove chicken thighs from the slow cooker and place, skin-side up, on the prepared baking sheet.

  7. Broil in the preheated oven until skin is crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with potatoes, apples, onions, and sauce.
