Deliciously Healthy Chicken Crockpot Recipe

 

What you need:

  • A Medium/Large Crockpot (obviously..)
  • 1 Small Bag of Mini Carrots
  • 6 Medium Potatoes
  • 8 Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 2 teaspoons of Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Parsley Flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of Sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Celery Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of Pepper
  • 1 Chicken Bouillon Cube
  • 1 Cup of Water

 

What to do:

1. Take the mini carrots out of the bag and throw them in the bottom of the crockpot.

2. Peal (optional) and cut the potatoes.  Toss them on top of the carrots in the crockpot.

3. Mix the spices together (except the bouillon cube) in a small dish and sprinkle half of it over the carrots and potatoes.

4. Place the chicken breasts over the top of the carrots and potatoes and add the rest of the spice mix over the top of the chicken. (Make sure ALL of the top of the chicken is covered with the spices!)

5. Finally, add a crushed bouillon cube to a cup of hot water and mix until the bouillon cube has completely dissolved.  Add this at the edge of the crockpot as to not disturb the spices you just put all over the chicken (DO NOT pour it over the chicken!).

6. Put it on High for 6 hours (or low for 10 hours).  Adjust accordingly, depending on the thickness of the chicken.

7. When it’s done, serve with some warm bread and wala!  Enjoy!

  1. I love using the Crock-Pot and my favorite is doing pulled pork in it, as you literally just put the rub all over it, sear it in a pan and then throw it in the crock pot with just a couple other ingredients and then you can ignore it all day.

    Tip for your recipe: buy a whole chicken, and just cut it up, then save the frame and toss it in a pot with carrot and onion peelings and water and then cook it off for 5 or 6 hours (or overnight) then pour them into some canning jars and toss them in the fridge. Much cheaper than buying chicken already cut up and boullion cubes for broth, the latter which are highly processed. 😊

    • LOVE that tip! I may just have to do that some day! Right now though, my grandmother (whom I live with) loves ‘easy’ options over ‘money saving options’.
      I agree with you though, crockpot recipes are so nice, you just throw some stuff in and forget about it for the rest of the day until it’s time to eat! 🙂

  2. The easiest CP Recipe I know: You need a piece of roast beef (around 1kg), a package of powderd onion soup, 1 onion and a can of coke. Cut the onion in rings and lay out the bottom of the CP. Put the meat on it. Mix the package with the coke and just pour it into the CP. 6 hours on high. You’ll have really soft meat that is nearly pulled beef. You don’t taste the coke but the sugar in it gives the onions a caramalized taste and it’s really yummy. You need to bind the liquid to a sauce but it’s totally worth it!
