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. I made this for dinner tonight and it smelled so good.. But—-about half way through I had to add maybe a cup of chicken broth as potatoes were sticking to the crockpot and chicken looked dry. I should have read the comments. After another couple of hours it was done and delicious. I will make it again.

  2. 5 stars
    This is our go-to when meal planning gets old! I don’t usually add potatoes but otherwise exactly as the recipe states. Thanks!

  3. 5 stars
    Yum! I followed the recipe and no need to add chicken broth or a liquid base. Very moist and tender chicken. I slow cooked for 5 hours because the potatoes were not cooked perfectly yet. I Love this Recipe! I will definitely make again.

  4. 5 stars
    I used very large chicken breasts, added a half a cup of chicken broth, and then cooked them with the potatoes for four hours, the chicken came out perfectly. It was moist and falling apart. The potatoes were perfect as well. My husband and I spilt a chicken breast because they were so big. I plan to use the left overs for chicken salad. This is a great recipe, but you do need to add chicken broth. This is definitely a keeper.

  5. I liked the simplicity of the recipe. I did not use chicken broth like everyone was suggesting. It is very good, but i agree it may need to be cooked on high because of the potatoes. Has anyone cooked this on high?

  6. Have you done this in the instant pot. I love this recipe and it’s a constant at our home but I am strapped for time today!

  7. 4 stars
    I liked the flavor. But I don’t know how anyone got this done in the time suggested on low. Started it just before 2 and by 7:30 the chicken was done but the potatoes were still raw. I like it enough to make again, but next time will set my crock pot on high. I gave it four stars for the flavor. The time goof was my fault. I’ve been cooking long enough to know better than to expect it would be done.

  8. I made this tonight as written and it was amazing! The house smelled so good all day and even the next day!! Hubby walked into the house after being out of town and smiled and said it’s good to be home! Thanks for sharing this one it will become a fav. in our house.
    P.S. it’s even as good warmed up!!

  9. Tried this and it was super good! I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth like others suggested and my chicken turned out nice and juicy!

  10. Found this site a little late …. searching for slow cooker chicken recipes. I froze a package of chicken breasts (maybe 6-8) and want to put them in the crock pot so my son and daughter-in-law have dinner ready when they get home from vacation this week. I will only put in chicken – they won’t want the potatoes. The spices sound good but I think I will add the chicken broth that others recommend. Do you have any updates to this recipe that are different from when you first posted it?

  11. Will try tonight but feel will be a little dry not a lot of liquid what do you love your recipe

    1. Thank you so much! I am glad you have found some recipes that you love! It actually turns out great, but if you would like to double the ingredients that is great too! Enjoy! Let me know how you like it!

  12. Can I use broth from a can of chicken noodle soup? Is it imperative to mix everything in a bowl or can I do it in crock pot?
