This Slow Cooker Rosemary Lemon Chicken and Red Potatoes is an easy healthy meal to put together. Just add everything to a Slow Cooker and let it do the magic!
I love it when I can just throw everything in a Slow Cooker and have dinner waiting for me when I get home at night.
You may have noticed I’ve been doing a lot of Slow Cooker recipes lately. Well technically January is National Slow Cooker Month! 🙂
But that’s not why I’ve been making these. I just love easy meals, and I haven’t had a whole lot of time to cook lately.
I came up with this recipe on a whim one day. I had half a bag of Red Potatoes sitting on my counter that were starting to grow eyes on them… so I had to think of something that day to make with them.
I found some Chicken in the fridge along with some Rosemary, Lemons, and Onion. So I thought ‘Hey, why don’t I just throw all this in my Slow Cooker!’ Genius. 😛
The Red Potatoes I had were medium size, so I just quartered them and put them on the bottom of the Slow Cooker along with the Onions. I sprinkled the tops of these with Salt, Pepper, and Rosemary.
Added the Chicken Breasts on top.
Squeezed the fresh juice out of 2 Lemons (about 1/2 cup) and poured it over the Chicken and Potatoes.
Added more Rosemary to the top of the Chicken, put the lid on and cooked on low setting. Left it for 6 hours and got boat loads of work done! Love productive days like this! 🙂
Here’s what I love about this meal:
- It’s so healthy, serve it with a side of your favorite veggies and you’re good to go!
- The Potatoes cook perfectly and are so flavorful
- The Chicken stays tender and moist with delicious flavors from the Lemon and Rosemary
- It’s super easy to make
- This also makes great leftovers!

This was very easy and the flavors were delicious! The chicken was a little dry after 7 hours on low. Not sure what to do about that because I am not an instinctual cook – I have to follow a recipe. I think we can make chicken salad with the leftovers that will be tasty. Thanks for sharing!
