This is a complete meal in a pot with tender, juicy chicken thighs, potatoes, and beans slow-cooked in a tomato-based sauce. Each bite is packed with flavour!
The chicken, potatoes, and beans are cooked in a savoury herb sauce. This is one of the best dinner ideas. My go-to and favourite rotation. When I had my slow cooker, this recipe is the first I tried. As expected this turned out delicious! From then on, this Slow Cooker Full Chicken Dinner has become my family’s number one fave chicken meal!
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs
2 garlic cloves minced
1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes diced
1 pound green beans ends snipped
8 ounces can tomato sauce (not paste)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Hot to make Slow Cooker Full Chicken Dinner
Step 1: Heat the cooking oil in a pan over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook each side of the chicken in the pan once the oil is hot until brown. It is okay not to cook the meat completely.
Step 2: To the bottom of the slow cooker, add the diced potatoes and green beans. Toss well, then lay the chicken thighs on top. Add the garlic, then drizzle over the tomato sauce and sprinkle over the salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary. Now, smear around the sauce using a spatula and try to mix the seasoning into the sauce.
Step 3: Put the lid on and set to cook on high for 4 1/2 hours. Refrain from opening the lid while cooking, or else the potatoes will not get tender.
Make sure to add a cup of chicken broth if using boneless skinless chicken.
You can use any variety of potatoes to substitute Yukon gold potatoes.
