Toss a few tasty ingredients into your slow cooker in the morning, and when you come home after a long day, you'll thank yourself.
Are you busy? Like really busy? Like pulling your hair out and counting the minutes until you can shed your clothes and curl into the warmth of your bed busy?
It’s no wonder that by the time dinner rolls around, I just want it on the table – without any fuss or prep. Just ready to go. That feeling makes me adore my slow cooker that much more.
When you use a slow cooker for dinner, it takes a mere 10 minutes (or less) in the morning to toss dinner together. I can make 10 minutes appear in my morning for that for sure.Slow Cooker Herbed Chicken and Potatoes
is a perfect example of a toss it in and go dinner.
All you have to do is cube a few potatoes (so fast!) then you toss them in the slow cooker and top then with the chicken breasts, herbs, salt and pepper and chicken broth.
Set that baby to low and you are ready to go.
The flavor is amazing because the ingredients meld together. The herbs infuse the chicken and potatoes with earthy, bright flavor while the tender potatoes develop an irresistible silkiness to them.
Make this one a meal by pairing it with some Green Giant Streamers Grean Beans – or your favorite veggie.
