Blenders and toaster ovens are great, but our favorite kitchen appliance has to be the slow cooker.

This recipe comes courtesy of a new stay-at-home dad. He admittedly is not a wiz in the kitchen, which is why he loves this recipe. It can be made by amateur chefs or more seasoned cooks. Either way, you’ll love the final result: yummy chicken thighs and glaze.
