    Great recipe. Chicken fell off the bone. Good flavors thanks to the slow cooking.

    You talking about easy and delicious. This is going in the rotation. I actually used a tablespoon of salt. I found they the salt and paprika kept falling to the bottom of the dish I used to mix them together in so I had to keep mixing it so it was even. Then I spooned it over the bottom and the thighs and it came out perfect since the seasoning was evenly distributed. I had Zatarans yellow rice and broccoli. So good.

    I agree with the other reviews I will use half the salt next time but boy did these turn out delicious. I bought two packages of boneless skinless chicken thighs from Publix and it took 2 1/2 hours on low in my crockpot. I cannot believe the amount of liquid they create! This is an awesome staple recipe for quick easy chicken thighs - highly recommend!!

    It was too salty, but it was still good! I’m definitely making it again but with less salt.

    Oh my god were the first words out of my mouth. This tasted so freaking good. The chicken peeled easier than string cheese.

    Used the oven. Turned out great and was perfect for a last minute week night meal! Will be adding to rotation.

    Turned out great! A lot of flavor. Nice and moist. I made it in my insta-pot instead of the slow cooker.

    they were great but I put them in the oven after 3 hrs of slow cooker so they weren't soggy.

    Easiest recipe. Happy I read the comments first and cooked on low for a little over 3 hours... I imagine any longer and the chicken would have been very dry. I didn’t have onion flakes so I just used onion powder and added some cayenne for a little more flavour. Tastes so good with the saffron rice!!

    The chicken was very tender, but I'm not a fan of dark meat. I think I would amp up the spice level too because it was very bland.

    It was very well received might cut back salt but everyone loved it

    First time cooking with saffron. Yes it was a little pricey, but it was delicious 😋

    I made this using cilantro and Tajin (chili/lime spice) I also drizzled a little olive oil...and served it with white rice!! It was fantastic!! I cooked it in the crockpot high heat for 3/12 hours.. this will be a regular rotation!! And with leftovers next day I shredded the chicken and made tacos!!!

    Turned out pretty good. I was runnung low on time so I baked it according to the alternative directions, without a lid. I also drizzled it with olive oil before baking.

    This was delicious! I will definitely make it again. I cooked it in the crockpot on low for 3 1/2 hours instead of 6 hours.

    Seriously good. For the chicken I used half the amount of salt (cause woah) and served it with saffron rice and green beans. Whole family loved it, including my 4-year-old! Next time will probably use even less salt and cook for less time.

    Meat was tender and juicy, but I think there was too much onion and salt. Flavor was lacking in complexity.

    This was an instant hit at our house! My 5 year old girls devoured it and asked for seconds, which NEVER happens. It was super easy to put together. I was able to get it all going in about 10 minutes, if that. We will definitely be making this again. I have a feeling it's going to be a frequent repeater in this household!
