  • 1.5-2 lbs chicken breast or thighs both work well, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 lb baby potatoes or diced larger potatoes
  • 1 lb baby carrots or larger carrots cut into coins
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 lemon


  • cut chicken into bite-size pieces
  • Place chicken, potatoes, and vegetables into slow cooker
    1.5-2 lbs chicken, 1 lb baby potatoes, 1 lb baby carrots, ½ cup onion, diced
  • add in all seasonings, butter, and prepared chicken stock
    2 tablespoon garlic, minced, 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning, 1 teaspoon thyme
  • place butter in slow cooker and pour prepared chicken stock over top
    ¼ cup butter, ½ cup chicken stock
  • cut lemon in half. squeeze juice from each lemon half over mixture in slow cooker. Then slice the lemon halves and place all slices (with rind) into slow cooker
  • cover and cook on low for 3.5 - 6 hours
  • your dish is ready to serve when the internal temperature of the chicken pieces reaches 165°F and the potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork.


If you cannot find small baby potatoes, cutting up a larger potato into bite-sized pieces works just as well.  It is important that your potatoes not be too large or they will take longer to cook than the chicken.
