Slow Cooker Chicken in a Pot

Total Time

This is an old Crock Pot recipe that i have adapted and tweaked. I prefer to use boneless chicken thighs as chicken breasts tend to dry out.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice carrots, celery, and onions into 1/2 to 1 inch pieces, do not slice too small, place in pot.
  2. Place chicken in pot over sliced vegetables.
  3. Pour broth over chicken.
  4. Sprinkle salt, pepper, basil, and thyme over chicken and vegetables.
  5. Add bay leaf, remove after cooking.
  6. Cook on low 8-10 Hours or High about 4 hours. To thicken sauce, add corn starch in water to pot and stir.
  7. Serve over egg noodles.

It was so nice to come home on a blustery night to find this dish ready and waiting in the crockpot. It smelled and tasted marvelous and I thought it was nice comfort food. I used a mixture of bone-in breasts and legs and have to agree that the breasts were just a bit on the dry side compared to the legs. The next time I make this, I may add a few quartered potatoes. Thx for posting.
