Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes make a quick, simple, and delicious dinner!

Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes

I have a confession to make, I am addicted to Rosemary!  I love the smell and being that I’m pregnant that’s a huge plus!  So, when I looked in my freezer to find chicken drumsticks and in my fridge to see new potatoes and lemon plus rosemary in my pantry, I knew I was on to something!  These Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes are a delicious way to do dinner in a pinch.

Lately, we have been so busy.  Is it that way for you?  I feel like that’s basically the story of our lives at this point.  I am just starting to realize how hard it is to really get dinner on the table now that both my kids are in activities.  I originally posted this recipe back in 2012, it’s fun to read back on what I had wrote then with it too.  My daughter was still a bun in the oven then and now she’s 5!  She’s about to start Kindergarten this next year.  I just enrolled her last week.  That was more emotional than what I expected.  It seems like when they start elementary the years just start passing by.

When this was originally posted, my son was just about to start Pre-K and now he’s in 3rd grade!

Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes

Let’s get back to this meal, it’s similar to a pantry style meal.  I almost always have everything I need for this on hand.  If you prefer a crispier chicken, you can lightly brown the chicken in a skillet before adding to the slow cooker.  If you are like me though, I like to just put it all in and let the slow cooker do all the work.

I typically will add some green beans to this as well for a little more veggies, but you can also serve it as is or with a salad.

    I’m going to try this. I can’t stand the texture of chicken that cooks submerged in liquid. Thanks!

      Yes, you could do it on high for 4 hours. Just be sure your chicken is done before eating but typically with crock pot meals you just cook on high and you can do it in 1/2 the time.

    Are the potatoes mushy after 8 hours?? Thinking of putting them in at 4 hours. Thanks! Looks yummy and I have all the ingredients! 🙂

      I didn’t think they were, but they are very soft. You could def probably put them in at 4 hours too!

      I didn’t, but you can use about 1/2 cup of broth or water to help with avoiding dry out if that’s a concern.
