Hey hey it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb! It’s no secret I’m a little bit obsessed with my slow cooker – or I should say slow cookers because I think I have five of them??? I just got a new one for Christmas and I’m so excited about it, I use my slow cookers several times a week and when we are having a family get together I usually have a few in use at the same time.

This is a great go-to weeknight staple dish. I love the flavors, it’s really healthy, and I never get tired of chicken or potatoes. The best part? It’s chicken AND potatoes made in one dish at the same time. It’s awesome! Even picky eaters are a fan of this simple crockpot meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!

  1. This recipe is very bland and the vegetables did not cook right. I ended up throwing it all out. If I could give it no stars, I would.

  2. I put the chicken with the potatoes and added half a cup of chicken broth along with other seasonings. I used two packets of Italian seasoning as well. Cooked on high. Mine was done in about 2.5 hrs.

    1. You can find an Italian seasoning blend down the seasoning isle. McCormick does make a great one or you can add your Italian seasonings together to make your own at home. Hope you enjoy your potatoes!

  3. its in the pot now….anxious to feed the fam tonight! I did the growing first in cast iron skillet. I am giving it a 5 star cause I can get the taxes done without interruption and the combo of spices and pre growing smells and looks delicious!

  4. This recipe is so simple and delicious! This is my second time making it over the past 3 weeks. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was excellent. This time, I added a sweet potato and a little onion. It’s great exactly as the recipe shows and is also a fun one to play around with a bit!

  5. I’m making this for supper tonight. It looks yummy. I omitted the potatoes because I can’t have them. I added the chicken stock someone else had in their comments and decided to add diced tomatoes with green chilies. Everything else the same I can’t wait til it’s done it looks good.

  6. I had a question, and it may seem stupid but you didn’t say add any water to the Crock-Pot, is that intentional?? Do you not add water??? I love using my pot but I’ve never used it without any type of liquid base, so can you please explain to me? I plan on trying this tomorrow for my kids!

  7. Why not mix it all in the slow cooker? I don’t understand why you would necessarily want to mix it all in a separate bowl.

  8. Can you add carrots and green beans? I’ve got one child who won’t do potatoes. Should I add more of the seasonings?

  9. How do you think this would freeze before being cooked? Like prepping it, freezing, defrosting and then throwing it in the slow cooker? Im looking for freezer recipes to prep before i give birth!

  10. I probably should have cooked the dish in a skillet a little bit beforehand to sear it because this turned out unfortunately very bland and mushy. Maybe if you double up on the seasoning it’s good or adding other seasoning in addition to.

  11. This Recipe was an astounding success for the first thing I used my crockpot for! Love it! Do you have recommendations on cook time on HIGH? Just in case I get strapped for time. ?

  12. Really good! I added the chicken broth as suggested in other comments. I didn’t have Italian Spices either, but had half a bottle of Italian dressing leftover from summer and used that-worked fine.

  13. I live on my own but also work so I love using my slow cooker!
    This recipe was delicious!! And I had enough to freeze a meal for another day
    and some to take for lunch next day!
