I bought a nicer slow cooker. I got it at Best Buy. It is a Hamilton Beach slow cooker, 6 quart. The lid just lift up and I really like that. I didn’t like having to lay the lid on the counter.
I have posted this recipe before but I decided to make a video on how I made it. My husband loves this chicken for sandwiches too, so I made 2 chicken breasts just for that. I put in a lot of carrots but my son said next time double the amount of carrots. He loves eating them. So here is the video of slow cooker chicken with carrots and yellow potatoes made with olive oil and fresh squeezed orange juice. This is so good. I cooked it on high for 3 hours.
I just cooked the best meal and I wanted to write down how I made it. Each bite I took made me go yummmm. I got a Hamilton Beach slow cooker at Walmart. It is the 5 quart one. It was $18. I am sure if you have a better slow cooker it will work great, but this one cooked the chicken perfect.
You take chicken breasts, trimmed of all fat. Mine were big and I used two. Next time I will use 3 but these were big pieces and I cut them in half to make 4 pieces. This was enough for 3 people. My husband just told me to cook 6 chicken breasts next time. I said we need to buy a bigger slow cooker then.
I put the chicken in the bottom the pot. Then I peeled about 8 small potatoes and cut them in half. I got the potatoes at the 99 cent store and they were Yukon gold potatoes. I should have put more of them in too because they were so good. Put them in the pot on one side of the chicken.
Cut up some carrots and put them in the pot on the other side of the chicken. I used 6 carrots. My son loves carrots so next time I will probably put about 9 of them in there.
Then take 1/4 cup of olive oil.
I used the juice of one orange, put it in the olive oil.
1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning. (That is was the bottle says.)
1 teaspoon onion powder
I used some garlic salt, probably 1 tsp. Or use fresh garlic. I didn’t have any.
Mix that all together and then pour it over everything in the pot, the chicken, potatoes and carrots.
Put the lid on and turn on high and cook for 4 hours. That is it. Then eat it. The chicken tastes so tender and good. I can’t wait to make it again, but with more chicken, potatoes and carrots. They taste so good, you will want more. Do not open the pot after you close it, until it is done.
