Slow cooker chicken thighs with harissa vegetables of Sara Meyer - Recipefy

1 medium yellow onion
1/4 cup harissa paste or sauce (such as Mina)
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds baby yellow potatoes (about 1 1/2-in. diameter)
1 pound large carrots, peeled and cut diagonally into 2-in.-long pieces (about 4 large carrots)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
8 (5-oz.) bone-in chicken thighs, skinned
Lemon wedges (optional)
Finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)

Prep. Time → 20 min

Cook Time → 480 min

1. Peel onion, and cut vertically into 8 wedges, keeping root end intact to hold wedges together. Combine harissa and 1 tablespoon oil in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add potatoes, carrots, and onion; toss gently to coat.

2. Combine garlic powder, paprika, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixture evenly over meaty side of chicken thighs. Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet; swirl to coat. Add chicken thighs, meaty side down. Cook until well browned on one side, 5 to 6 minutes.

3. Arrange chicken thighs over vegetables in slow cooker, browned side up. Cover, and cook on low 8 hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker, and sprinkle vegetables with remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt. Divide vegetables evenly among 4 bowls; top evenly with chicken. Spoon juices over chicken and vegetables. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with parsley, if desired.
