Recipe - crockpot garlic chicken with potatoes and green beans

I've made this recipe countless times and love it- it's easy, delicious and healthy. BUT it requires the oven to be on for an HOUR. And that just ain't happening in Texas in August. My kitchen literally wouldn't cool down until 10pm if I did that. So I decided to try it out in the crockpot today and I actually like it better! Once again, crockpot for the WIN!

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
Pound (or so) fingerling potatoes
1/2 pound fresh green beans
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
Chicken broth

1) Place half of your chopped onion (so 1/4 of an onion...following?) on the bottom of the crockpot, cover with chicken broth.
2) Then place chicken, potatoes and green beans in- in that order. 
3) Them put the remaining chopped onion and garlic on top and drizzle with EVOO (maybe 3 tbsp.)
4) Cook on HIGH for 5 hours. ENJOY!



  1. How much broth do you use? just enough to cover onions and chicken or all?

    1. Just enough to cover the onions. The chicken won't sit in liquid.

    1. Mine wasn't, but I'm sure you can, just cook a bit longer!
