I’m a busy mom. Between caring for my daughter, walking my dog, and doing household chores, I have a lot on my plate.
Naturally, I want to minimize the amount of time I spend in the kitchen. And as summer weather approaches, I want to cook even less to keep our house from overheating.
Slow cooker dinners are my favorite fallback whenever I don’t want to cook. I simply dump everything into the Crock-Pot, turn it on, and let it sit all day. By the time dinner rolls around, everything comes out soft, perfect, and delicious.
Slow cooker chicken, potatoes, and carrots, in particular, are my favorite because they require minimal preparation for maximum flavor.
Better still, slow cooker chicken and potatoes is ridiculously cheap per serving. I buy frozen chicken breasts in bulk from Costco, and potatoes and carrots are easy to find for a low-price just about anywhere.
On a happy note, it’s fairly calorie friendly. I can easily feed my family and keep everyone full while still being healthy. And I can make it in advance, freeze it, and thaw it later to make things even easier for myself.
So it’s a win-win all around.
Slow Cooker Chicken, Potatoes, and Carrots
- 452 Grams Chicken Breasts, Boneless/Skinless (About 4 Breasts)
- 1038 Grams Russet or Red Potatoes, Chopped (About 6 large potatoes)
- 312 Grams Carrots, Chopped (About 4 Large Carrots)
- 595 Grams Cream of Chicken Soup (2 Cans, 10.5 Oz. Each)
- 0.8 Grams Garlic Salt (1/4 Teaspoon or Season to Taste)
- 0.5 Grams Onion Powder (1/4 Teaspoon or Season to Taste)
- 0.5 Grams Paprika (1/4 Teaspoon or Season to Taste)
- Place the chicken, chopped potatoes, and chopped carrots in the slow cooker.
- In a separate container, mix together the seasonings with the condensed cream of chicken soup.
- Pour the cream of chicken over the rest of ingredients in the slow cooker and cover with lid.
- Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 3 to 4 hours. Potatoes will be soft and chicken should shred easily.
Did You Try It?
Whenever I’m in a meal-prep mode, this recipe comes back again and again because of how easy and cheap it is to make for my whole family. But I’m always open to suggestions. Do you add different seasonings? Do you swap out of the cream of chicken soup for cream of mushroom soup? Perhaps you add onions in with your carrots and potatoes?
