Slow Cooker Full Chicken Dinner

Picture this: a succulent whole chicken, tender and juicy, surrounded by an array of perfectly seasoned vegetables, all bathed in flavorful broth, simmering away to perfection in your trusty slow cooker.


  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs cooking oil
  • 1.5 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes, diced
  • 1 pound green beans, ends snipped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 (8-oz) can tomato sauce (not paste)
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary



Set a pan on the stove top and set to medium high heat. Add enough cooking oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When the oil is hot, brown the chicken on both sides, you don’t need to cook the meat through.

Add the diced potatoes and green beans to the bottom of the slow cooker, toss them together to combine them. Add the chicken thighs on top of the potatoes and green beans. Add the garlic. Drizzle over the tomato sauce, then sprinkle over the salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. Take a spatula and smear around the sauce trying to combine the seasoning into the sauce.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 4.5 hours. Do no open the lid during the cooking time or the potatoes will not get tender. Serve and enjoy!
