Greek Chicken with Green Beans

My Greek grandmother made the most delicious Greek chicken and green beans with a lemon-tomato flavor. Whenever I make this slow-cooker recipe, I think of her. The juices from the chicken help flavor the green beans, but the beans can be prepared alone as a side dish without the chicken.


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh dill
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: Lemon wedges and additional snipped fresh dill



  1. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Top with chicken. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, covered, on low until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 170°-175°, 4-6 hours.
  2. Preheat broiler. Place chicken on a greased rack in a broiler pan. Broil 4-6 in. from heat until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Serve with bean mixture and, if desired, lemon wedges and additional fresh dill.
