There is something about this recipe that is so irresistible to me. The humble combination of pickle relish, Dijon and mayo coating tender chicken thighs is fantastic. The slow cooker means a cool kitchen, too, in the middle of a hot summer.
4 large chicken thighs, with skin
¼ cup dill pickle relish
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup mayonnaise
½ cup chicken broth
Additional relish to garnish, if you like
1. Rinse chicken well; pat dry. Place in a greased 5-6 quart slow cooker skin side up.
2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the relish, mustard, and mayonnaise. When well blended, stir in the chicken broth. Mix well.
3. Pour sauce over the chicken.
4. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or until chicken is tender, but not dry. Really good served over rice.

I made the dish again with skinless thighs and it was just as delicious, but looked a touch washed out.
