Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken And Potato Recipe

slow-cooker-cheesy-chicken-potatoes-128140 Image 1This looks really tasty.  It’s cheesy, chicken-y and potato-y. I like the idea that you make this in a slow cooker either on high or low setting to get this meal made without last minute scurrying around. Great for a Friday and over the weekend left-overs. This recipe serves 8 — that should be lots of food to feed your family with extras left-over.

As usual with all the recipes I put up here, feel free to add to or take away certain ingredients. I know there are some ingredients I don’t particularly like and want to add other spices or maybe a salsa to put over the top instead of cheese or right along with it. You know what your family likes.

Cheesy Chicken and Potato Slow Cooker Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 large chopped green pepper
  • 1 lb. of red potatoes, thinly sliced — that’s about 3 red potatoes
  • 1 tsp. paprike
  • 8 boneless skinless halved chicken thighs — that’s about 2 lbs. of meat — you can also go with chicken breasts or chicken legs and thighs 
  • 1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 4 oz. of 1/2-inch cubes of cheese — Velveeta or cheddar or any cheese of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp. of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

  1. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Place the chopped green pepper on the bottom.
  3. Top with the sliced potatoes.
  4. Place four chicken thighs on top of the potatoes, sprinkle with paprika.
  5. Cover the chicken thighs with the cream of chicken soup.
  6. Put the remaining chicken thighs on top of the chicken soup. You can add paprika on top if you like.
  7. Cover  with the lid.
  8. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
  9. Use a slotted spoon to remove the chicken and potatoes onto a serving platter; cover to keep warm.
  10. Set the slow cooker on HIGH heat.
  11. Add the cheese and Worcestershire sauce to the liquid that’s left in the slow cooker; stir.
  12. Cover with the lid and cook for 5 minutes.
  13. Stir until the cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
  14. Spoon over chicken and potatoes.
  15. Top with parsley.

With your added touches, this would be an excellent dinner and lunch with the left-overs. I like recipes that serve for more than one meal.
