"Slow Cooker Chicken with Olives and Peppers is a set it and forget it weeknight dinner the whole family will love. The chicken gets so tender and the sauce is full of salty flavor from the olives. Your whole family will love the salty sauce this chicken creates while it cooks. It makes for the most tender chicken thighs.It is so easy to throw in the slow cooker in the morning and not think about it again until you get home. I like to add the red peppers at the last minute so they don’t get too tender."

Serves6 People


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 cup olives (I used green and black)
  • 1 can 14 oz chickpeas
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  1. Place chicken thighs on a plate and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with all seasonings.

  2. Put into a greased slow cooker and add all other ingredients except for the red peppers.

  3. Push the other ingredients down around the sides of the chicken, not on top.

  4. Cook on low for four hours or high for two hours.

  5. Remove lid and add red peppers 30 minutes before finished.

  6. Garnish with parsley and lemon if desired.

You are absolutely going to love this Slow Cooker Chicken with Olives and Peppers recipe. I love that it calls for chicken thighs (my favorite part of the chicken), and fresh herbs that create a wonderful salty/savory sauce when combined with the olives. I love olives, but had never thought of cooking with them. Now I find myself looking for other recipes to add them too. Everything about this recipe is perfect

This recipe looks amazing and I will be trying it our right away! I find that this time of year I cook less meals that are prepared in the oven, but on cool spring evenings, it's still nice to have a warm and hearty meal! This is great because it can cook all day long while you're at work. I love that the recipe includes chick peas - for added protein- or it could replace the chicken altogether for a tasty and nutritious meatless meal!!

Chicken with olives and pepper sounds very yummy indeed, especially with the herbs. I intend to use my new slow cooker to the fullest and this sounds like a very good dish to start with. The only change I might make is to use chicken thighs instead of breasts but overall I think this is going to be a really tasty meal.

I love olives. I have never eaten them with chicken and was intrigued by this recipe. I am definitely going to make it. I must confess I do like my salt which is not healthy so the fact that the olives gives this dish such a salty flavor can only be good I am sure. I'm keen to make it and leave it cooking whilst I am at work. It is always nice to come home to a cooked meal.
