This recipe for Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Potatoes is a perfect weeknight dinner. Let the crockpot do all the work and enjoy a flavorful meal after a busy day.
I’ve been putting my crockpot to work this week! On Sunday, I made some pulled pork for lunches and then yesterday I whipped up the deliciousness pictured above for us to enjoy for dinner.
I’m usually more of a sweet potato girl, but my mom bought some white potatoes while she was in town so I was on a mission to use them up! That being said, you could make this with sweet potatoes if you prefer!
This is a super simple meal that’s full of flavor and it pairs perfectly with your favorite veggies! We enjoyed ours with green beans and roasted carrots. Maple Bacon Roasted Carrots. (Recipe coming soon!!)
I topped mine with avocado, salsa and a little extra cheese and it was delicious.
Here’s how you make it:
I used thin-sliced chicken breasts so mine took a little less than 4 hours. With regular chicken breasts, 4-6 hours should be fine! There will be a little liquid at the bottom of the crockpot so just use a slotted spoon when serving.
You could easily add some black beans or other veggies to this if you wanted to! And feel free to change up the spices to fit your tastes. You could add cayenne or chili powder for some spice, cumin for a Mexican spin, etc!
