Slow Cooker Chicken Stifado (Greek Chicken Stew)


Chicken stifado (Greek chicken stew) is one of the most flavorful Greek dishes of all. The combo of cinnamon and orange compliments meat perfectly and make this dish homey and warm. The pearl onions are essential because they soak up all the flavor of the meat and spices. I do this stifado recipe with chicken breast because the traditional meat for this is rabbit, which is harder to find. The chicken breast is low in fat and cooks down to fork tender in the slow cooker. Traditional stifado usually requires much more care and way more steps than this version. The flavor, however, comes out the same. You’re going to need some good crusty bread because stifado creates an insanely good sauce to dip in.
