Before the baby is born, most moms are all about stocking the freezer full of delicious and healthy meals to defrost and eat once your family has grown by one tiny person.
In the early days of parenthood, you’ll never go hungry. Between dinner drop-offs and surprise take-out from neighbors, you will probably have more food than you and your partner can reasonably consume. However, once the take-out offerings from friends and family begin to slow down and you’ve made your way through the casserole stockpile you amassed during your third trimester nesting phase, you’ll still have a family to feed.
Now that you’re a family of three (although one might not be eating solids yet), it’s all about convenience and nothing is more convenient than a simple chicken dish made in the slow cooker.
The Garlic Chicken Thighs from Kristen Doyle at Dine & Dish is a simple recipe: you throw it in the crockpot and forget about it, leaving the flavors and seasonings “to party with the chicken all day.” At dinnertime, throw together a simple green salad and you have a tasty and delicious meal.
