Italian Chicken with Potatoes (Slow Cooker)

Crockpot Italian Chicken with Potatoes

This is a simple but tasty meal, and it fits the bill on those days when I want to do most of the dinner preparation early in the day.  It’s always a nice feeling to hit 5:00 p.m. and know that all I have to do is prepare vegetables.  Especially when I have three hungry guys asking me when dinner will be ready.

I almost always brine chicken breasts before cooking them now.  You can follow the link to learn how to brine your chicken.

This recipe makes a lot, but I have a large crock pot and like having leftovers.  You could always cut it in half.

Crockpot Italian Chicken with Potatoes
Recipe type: Main Dish
  • 4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 halves)
  • 2 pounds red or gold potatoes
  • ½ cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  1. Brine the chicken breasts for 45 minutes. Drain and rinse. This step is optional but results in more moist and tender chicken.
  2. Wash the potatoes and cut them into approximately 1½ inch chunks. Place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Pour half the salad dressing over the potatoes and sprinkle them with half the Italian seasoning.
  4. Place the chicken breasts on top of the potatoes. Pour the remaining salad dressing over top. Sprinkle with the remaining Italian seasoning.
  5. Cook on low for 6 hours or high 3 hours.
