Chicken is our all-time favorite blank canvas for dinner. Healthy chicken meals check all the boxes: affordable, low in fat, and high in protein. The only thing that could make the MVP better is if it cooked itself. Enter the slow cooker! We have plenty of healthy slow cooker meals, including soups, stews, rice, and pasta dishes that practically prepare dinners themselves.


1 - pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 - cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 - pound tiny new yellow or red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
3/4 - cup sliced spring onions, ramps, or green onions (white parts)
1 - carrot, sliced 1/4-inch thick
3 - cloves garlic, minced
1/4 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - cup half-and-half
3 - tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 - cup fresh English peas, shelled, or frozen peas
1 - ounce crumbled goat cheese (chevre), (optional)
1 - teaspoon snipped fresh thyme
1 - recipe Caramelized Shallots (optional)


Place chicken in a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Add the next five ingredients (through salt).

Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

If using low, turn cooker to high. In a small bowl whisk together the half-and-half and flour; add to soup in cooker. Stir in peas, goat cheese (if using), and thyme. Cover and cook 15 minutes more or until thickened. If desired, top servings with additional crumbled goat cheese and Caramelized Shallots.
