  • Cooking Method: Slow cooker
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Cooking Time: 4-6 hours
  • Cuisine Type: Fusion


  • 1 lb chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Brown chicken thighs on both sides. Don’t worry, we’re not cooking them through; just giving them some color.
  2. Move the chicken thighs to a plate. Sauté the diced onion in the same pan until translucent.
  3. In a 6-quart slow cooker, combine browned chicken, sautéed onions, minced garlic, cauliflower florets, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, thyme, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Stir the contents gently to mix. Put on the lid, crank up that slow cooker to low heat, and cook for 6 hours. If you’re in a rush, use the high setting for 4 hours.
  5. About 30 minutes before the time is up, check the chicken. If it’s tender, give a little cheer! If not, patiently wait a bit longer.
  6. Serve hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley. Enjoy with a spoon to scrape up all the flavors.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Substitute chicken thighs with drumsticks or breast. Swap cauliflower with broccoli for a different twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Add a dollop of Greek yogurt on top. Sprinkle some crushed red pepper for a spicy kick.
  • Cooking Tips: For thicker stew, mix 2 tbsp of cornstarch with a little water and add in the last 30 minutes. Use leftover chicken for a shortcut version.
