Chicken and vegetables is always a win! Chicken and veg in the slow cooker is even better when you get to come home and have dinner just about ready. What’s great about this Honey Chicken & Veg is how much flavor you get out of it and that it is an all-in-one meal. The potatoes, carrots, and green beans are all ready at the same time as the chicken – resulting in one of the easiest meals you will make all year!
This is a lot to put into a slow cooker – so you need at least a 7 quart one. You need at least that much depth and width. You want to try to lay out the veggies in a layer and then the chicken in a single layer, as best you can.
I used skin on, bone in chicken thighs for this recipe and I really think you should. But if you usually like breasts (white meat), you will need to at least do whole chicken breast – with the bone in. The bone gives a lot of the flavor to the recipe.
Now Let’s Get Cookin’!
