This is a nice addition to my collection of crock pot recipes. I took the updated instructions to mean that the chicken is layered in between the potatoes and onions and this worked fine for me cooking everything on high for about 6 hours. No dry chicken! I did find that at the end the dish benefited from a generous additional squeeze of lemon juice and hearty sprinkling of sea salt, but that's probably just a matter of personal taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Night before dinner, place potatoes in large Ziploc bag with olive oil and toss well. (You can skip this if you really need to and put oil on top after the seasonings.).
  2. Rinse chicken in cold water and shake off excess water but don't dry. Place in bowl with garlic (yes, the ingredients were right, bulb, not clove) and oregano and toss.
  3. Put potatoes on bottom of cooker. Add chicken, followed by the onions. Add water and lemon juice. Sprinkle with seasonings.
  4. Cook on high 5-6 hours or low 8-9 hours.
