1/2 yellow onion, diced 

1 tbsp coconut aminos

Preheat slow cooker to high and add diced onion to the bottom. Sear both sides of chicken thighs over medium to high heat on skillet that has been greased with the avocado oil. Add the seared chicken to the slow cooker with the onion. In medium bow whisk together the harissa, coconut milk, coconut aminos, honey, vinegar, sea salt and cinnamon before pouring over chicken.
