This year I am trying to eat healthier without having to spend an arm and a leg on food. It’s easier said then done because let’s face it…everything that tastes good is bad for you. Since I had a few days off last week I decided to make a new slow cooker recipe. This Seasoned Chicken, Potatoes & Green Bean recipe is courtesy of The Magical Slow Cooker.
Boneless Chicken Breasts
Fresh Green Beans
Diced Red Potatoes
Fresh Lemon Juice
Put chicken breasts in slow cooker. Place green beans on one side of chicken and the potatoes on the other. You may have to pile them up on each side. Mix together lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, salt, pepper, onion powder and minced garlic. Pour mixture over chicken, green beans and potatoes. Cook on high for 4 hours.
First off the house smelled amazing while this was cooking! It was fairly simple to throw together and start cooking it in my slow cooker. I know everyone is going nuts for Inta-pots but I still LOVE my slow-cooker! The chicken was tender and dare I say this word-moist. That word is only acceptable when discussing chicken and cakes! The potatoes were perfect but I overcooked the green beans on the side a bit. (Oops!) Overall the flavor was okay. I think next time I try this recipe I may try different herbs like rosemary.
