(Weight Watchers Crock Pot Cooking Day 181 – Crock Pot Chicken Thighs with Creamy Corn)
This easy easy crock pot chicken thighs and creamy corn was a big hit with Rod. Born and raised in the midwest, he loves simple comfort food best.
And it doesn’t get much simpler or more comforting than crock pot chicken thighs and creamy corn.
With just a few ingredients it’s a snap to toss together too.
I got the idea from one of my favorite cookbooks of the moment, 365 Slow Cooker Suppers by Stephanie Odea. (Unfortunately it doesn’t include nutritional information, a bummer for Weight Watchers.)
The Skinny on Crock Pot Chicken Thighs with Creamy Corn
The original recipe called for frozen corn and cream cheese. I substituted with what I had in the pantry: canned corn and canned creamed corn, and skipped the cream cheese.
And I tried to bump up the flavor by adding basil and McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning. But use whatever seasoning you like best.

- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil optional
- 2 tablespoons quick tapioca
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Chopped fresh basil for serving if desired

- Grease the slow cooker.
- Stir together the corn, creamed corn, tapioca, and basil and pour into the slow cooker.
- Season the chicken well with your favorite seasoning blend or salt and pepper. (I used Montreal chicken seasoning.)
- Snuggle the chicken thighs on top of the corn mixture.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours or until the chicken is tender when pierced with a fork.
- Remove chicken. Stir the corn mixture well. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired. Stir in fresh chopped basil if using.
