1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste for desired heat level)
6 large bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, trimmed
2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1 1/4-inch cube
1/4 c chicken broth
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh
2 teaspoons paprika
1 (16 ounces) pkg. frozen broccoli florets
1 teaspoon dried thyme, or 1 tablespoon fresh minced
2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)
4 cloves garlic, minced (1 1/2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Apply cooking spray to a 6-quart slow cooker, then arrange the sweet potatoes in a single layer in it.

Add salt, pepper, 1/2 of the garlic, and broth over the sweet potatoes.

Combine cayenne pepper, rosemary, brown sugar, paprika, thyme, and onion powder in a bowl. Top the potatoes with 1/2 of the seasoning mixture

Place a large pot on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. Add olive oil and allow it to become hot.

Use paper towels to pat dry the chicken, then sprinkle salt and pepper. Rub each until fully coated.

Place the chicken into the pot, then sear each side for a few minutes until they turn golden brown. Remove from the pot and transfer the chicken into the slow cooker.

Sprinkle the rest of the seasoning mixture and garlic on top of the chicken in the slow cooker.

Cover and seal the slow cooker, then cook for about 4 1/2 hours on a low setting.

About half an hour before the cooking time ends, add the broccoli.

Serve and enjoy!
