Slow Cooker Chicken and Shrimp Recipe

When I first saw this recipe I wasn’t sure how well chicken thighs and shrimp would blend together but it worked pretty well. Because of using dark meat the chicken remained nice and moist. I unusually don’t like cooking pasta in the slow cooker; I’d rather do it separately; because it was Orzo I thought that it might work out ok, and it did. If you have a busy day coming up you can get this on in the morning and finish it off in the evening when you get home. Combing the chicken and shrimp is a little different but I thought it was really good.

The next time you plan on using your slow cooker give this Slow Cooker Chicken and Shrimp Recipe a try. Enjoy
