The trusty crockpot shines once again in this easy chicken crockpot dinner recipe. Maybe it’s just me, but I find the tempting aroma of food simmering almost as delicious as the actual eating.
I have an Instant Pot and love it. And I want to buy an air fryer someday. But I am still a huge fan of the lowly crockpot. Throw some ingredients into it in the morning and come home to a warm, bubbling meal… the best thing in meal prep!
This delicious meal only calls for 4 ingredients. Super easy! Chicken, potatoes, green beans, and Italian dressing mix.
How to make easy chicken crockpot dinner
Place the chicken in one side of the crockpot. You have to make two layers of chicken, and squish the pieces tightly together.
Carefully place the green beans in one corner, and add the potatoes in the other corner. It will be full! Don’t worry – the chicken and beans shrink a lot during cooking.
Then, sprinkle the packet of Italian seasoning over the chicken and vegetables. Lift the top pieces of chicken and sprinkle some seasoning on the bottom layer.
Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours. The chicken will make it’s own juice – no need for liquid, I promise!
Tips for this easy dinner recipe
I like to use the baby potatoes, but you can use any potatoes. Just chunk them up and place them in the crockpot.
I have used frozen and fresh green beans. Either one works just fine. You can also use carrots instead of green beans.
Boneless chicken thighs are my favorite, but bone-in also work.
