Slow Cooker Saucy Chicken, Kale and Vegetables Recipe

One of my main goals for this winter is to bring more slow cooker recipes to the blog! My daughter just started kindergarten a month ago, and our time at home in the evenings has been cut by about an hour, which I'm not used to. I would like to do some slow cooker meals a couple days a week to cut down on my cooking time in the evenings. 

This recipe for Saucy Slow Cooker Chicken and Vegetables turned out so amazing!! I really liked how easy it was to throw together and the flavors have that awesome home cooked, comfort food flavor. The vegetables are super tender and the cream of mushroom soup sauce tops everything off perfectly. I would love to try making this again adding rutabaga and fresh mushrooms! Enjoy!!

Slow Cooker Saucy Chicken, Kale and Vegetables (print recipe)

What you need:
4-5 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
3 large carrots, cut into one inch pieces
3/4 cup onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1- 14.5 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper, as desired
8 chicken legs or thighs
2 cups kale, rinsed and chopped

In a large slow cooker, layer potatoes, carrots, onion, and garlic. Pour cream of mushroom and broth over the top. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place on top of the other ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4 hours. In the last 30 minutes, and chopped kale and stir in to combine.
