Quick & Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken & Potatoes
Ingredients
  • 4  small  (2 pounds) bone-in chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 2  teaspoons  Herbs de Provence (or combination of dried thyme, fennel, basil and savory)
  • 1  teaspoon  garlic salt
  •  Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2  cup  flour
  • 1  tablespoon  canola oil
  • 1 1/4  pounds  small red potatoes
  • 3/4  cup  frozen, thawed pearl onions
  • 1  cup  small baby carrots
  • 3/4  cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 8  ounces  small baby bella or white mushrooms
  •  Chopped fresh thyme (optional)
Directions

1. Combine the Herbs de Provence, garlic salt and pepper on a dinner plate. Spoon flour on to second dinner plate. Coat each chicken breast in the herb mixture; then dredge well in flour.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is golden brown on both sides (approximately 3-4 minutes per side). Cook chicken in two batches if necessary so as not to crowd the pan.

3. Place chicken in a large slow cooker and add remaining ingredients except fresh thyme. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Sprinkle with fresh thyme before serving, if desired.
