Slow cooker recipes are aaaaaaamazing for weeknight dinners.

Gone are the days of scrambling to manage the kids, homework and after-school activities all while making dinner. These days I spend 15-20 minutes in the morning, getting dinner in the slow cooker, and then by dinnertime the house smells like a restaurant and dinner is hot and ready to serve.

It doesn’t get better than that! And it eliminates the temptation to grab a not-so-healthy dinner from a drive thru.

This recipe is extremely simple to throw together, and the end result is chicken breasts that are super moist and flavorful. Serve it up with a dark green salad.

Serves 4

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 small red onion, chopped

1 small yellow onion, chopped

3 cloves Garlic, minced

3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

salt and pepper

12 dried figs, chopped (it looks pretty to use both dark and light ones)

1 cup Butternut Squash, chopped

1 cup chicken broth

1 teaspoon dried rosemary

2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh sage, chopped


In a large skillet place the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes.


Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Add to the skillet, browning each side for about 5 minutes.


Transfer the contents of the skillet to your slow cooker and top with the remaining ingredients.


Cook on low for 6 hours.
