Slow Cooker French Onion Chicken

This easy slow cooker French onion chicken is an excellent hearty dish that is packed full of flavor.

The steps to making this dish are super easy as you simply throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker and wait. The flavors from the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and French onion soup mix will infuse and produce a delicious sauce that goes great with the chicken drumsticks.

The main star of this dish is the French onion soup mix so make sure you buy a quality brand if you want the best results.

As you can imagine, rice goes amazing with these chicken drumsticks. I recommend cooking the rice separately for the best results.

There are plenty of other sides that go great with chicken. For example, a nice green salad, oven baked chips, or even some mashed sweet potato will go well with this dish.

Any leftovers can be kept in the fridge for a few days. I recommend shredding the leftover chicken and using it in another dish. The shredded chicken will be great in something like a bread roll, tacos or even as a pizza topping.

Cooking Tips:

  • You can use any cut of chicken in this delicious French onion chicken dish. I made use of chicken drumsticks, but thigh or breast will also work great.
  • The cornstarch thickener although is recommended it’s not required. If you don’t add it then you will find that the liquid will be funny.
  • If you're running late, then this dish will be fine if it stays cooking on low for a few more hours. The chicken may fall off the bone when you go to remove it from the slow cooker.
