Instructions 

  • 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 ½ 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.

Notes

  • 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.
  • Use baby potatoes or cut full-size potatoes into small pieces.
    Check the chicken after 2 hours to prevent overcooking.
  • If the chicken is finished before the potatoes remove the chicken from the crock pot and cover tightly to prevent it from drying out. Continue to cook the potatoes until they a fork-tender.
  • Dry herbs may be used in place of fresh herbs.
  • Brown the cooked chicken and herbed potatoes under a broiler for 5 minutes before serving.
