If you are looking for a complete chicken supper that you can cook in your slow cooker this is it! Best of all you can prepare this slow cooker chicken with sweet potatoes and green beans as a freezer meal and then simply thaw it and cook it when you are ready to eat it. We really enjoyed this delicious paleo and Whole 30 compliant dinner that is also gluten free.
I wasn't sure how I would enjoy the green beans but they turned out great. Best of all I put this into the crockpot in the morning and was gone all day. When we came home after soccer the house smelled delicious and dinner was ready.
If you are not eating Whole 30 or Paleo we thought the addition of corn bread would be an amazing accompaniment to this recipe. However we were and were 100% satisfied without it.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. You can adjust this recipe to feed your family using 4-6 pieces of meat. I personally use 4 to feed my family of 3 with a leftovers for lunch the next day. I use 2 lbs of chicken in my recipe but you can adjust between 4-6 cuts of chicken.
I hope your family enjoys this Slow Cooker Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans meal as much as mine did!
