Crock Pot Chicken and Potatoes Recipe
Boneless chicken breasts cooked over herbed baby potatoes is a favorite Crock Pot Chicken and Potatoes recipe.
- 1 1/2 pounds baby red potatoes
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley
- 1 heaping teaspoon of fresh minced rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, more to season chicken
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, more to season chicken
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or about 3 lbs boneless chicken thighs
- Prepare the baby potatoes by rinsing with cold water and cutting the larger potatoes in half.
- Put the potatoes into the bottom of a 6 quart or 7 quart crock pot slow cooker.
- Pour the olive oil and melted butter over the potatoes.
- Add the parsley, rosemary, minced garlic, ground pepper and salt to the crock pot. Use a large spoon to toss the potatoes with the herbs, spices, olive oil and butter to coat well.
- Place the chicken on top of the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
- Place the lid on top of the crock pot and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or low for 4 to 5 hours (see note) or cook until the center of the thickest piece of chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 F. degrees.
- Spoon the juices from the crock pot over the chicken and potatoes when serving.
- Makes 4 servings.
- The length of cooking time will vary depending on the size of the potatoes and the size of the chicken pieces you are cooking in the crock pot.
- I would not recommend cooking thin chicken breasts or chicken tender size cut pieces of boneless chicken. The small pieces of chicken will overcook long before the potatoes are cooked through.
- If you must use small pieces of chicken cook the potatoes by themselves for 2 to 3 hours before adding the thin pieces of chicken to the crock pot. Then you must keep a close eye on the chicken. Boneless chicken cooks very quickly in a crock pot.
