Complete Chicken Dinner in the Crock Pot

    I love using my crock pot.  Okay, let's be honest, I have two crock pots and I use them all the time, often both at the same time.  Cooking meals in a crock pot just makes sense.  Very little prep work; you don't heat up your house; you can put food on when you go to bed and it is ready for lunch the next day; or better yet, put a meal in the crock pot in the morning before work and come home to supper waiting on you.
      Meals in crockpots do not have to be elaborate.  Because the food slow cooks all day (or night) the flavors have a chance to "meld" together and comes out fantastic.  This is one of those meals.

Complete Chicken Dinner in the Crock Pot

 4 chicken quarters
1 stick of butter
2 cans of green beans
4 potatoes (sliced or cubed)
poultry seasoning
water

    Place your potatoes into the crockpot.  Put the stick of margarine on top of the potatoes.

  As you can tell, I used some of my dehydrated potatoes instead.  If you use them, you do not need to soak them first.  Put them in and they will soften and cook perfectly this way.

Drain the green beans and pour onto the potatoes.

  Pour enough water in the pot to cover the potatoes.  Place the chicken quarters in last and season them with a bit of poultry seasoning; put the lid on the crock pot and turn it on low.

 Let it cook 8 hours or overnight.  I have let it cook up to 14 hours and it was still perfect.

  3. Sounds like a great recipe. I liked having my suppers ready to go in a crockpot but now with the smartmeters I find I do not use it as much. Costs more to run it in peak hours. Anyone else think about this---

    1. Hubby hooked up a power meter and it showed that the crockpot used very little output.

  4. I love using my crockpot and this looks like an easy yet yummy meal to try. I think my favorite crockpot chicken recipe is the honey curry recipe. Then I serve it over rice.

    1. Jendi, I like the honey curry recipe too but the rest of my family are not big curry lovers. Thanks for stopping by.
