Chicken and Veggies (Crock Pot)

New chicken recipes for the crock are always welcome in my house ! I love to be able to put a meal together and then walk away and have it ready to eat hours later. This one has all the flavor of a nice chicken soup, but has a thick sauce and is more like a chicken stew. As with any crock recipe, if you like you meat browned (which the crock will not do), either pre-sear it, or at the end place under a hot broiler for just a few minutes.

Herbed Chicken

Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside – this chicken dish is superb. Try serving with Mexican Mac and Cheese and a nice green salad. The leftovers are great for use in salads, for wraps and sandwiches, and for quick soups.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (Perdue Perfect Portions work great here !)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t basil flakes
1 t rosemary flakes
1 t parsley flakes
¼ t kosher salt
2 T oil

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Make some deep slit sin the chicken tops. Combine garlic and other herbs and 2 T of oil and brush onto chicken. Heat an oven safe skillet and spray with Pam and cook chicken slit side down with the pan covered for 5 minutes to get a nice sear on it. Turn and then place skillet into oven and cook 12-15 minutes.

Alternately grill chicken on a hot grill if you prefer 🙂
