Forget takeout. Make delicious slow cooker garlic chicken instead

Print this recipe
This is one of those just right slow cooker meals. It’s easy to toss together and loaded with two of our favorite things — butter and garlic. Oh, and did we mention it has tender potatoes and carrots cooked in the garlic butter right along with the chicken? Like the chicken, the vegetables take on the rich, aromatic flavors of butter and garlic.
Set up this meal in the slow cooker in the morning so you can come home at the end of the day to a perfectly cooked, one-pot meal. Add herbs or spices to give it even more flavor. A sprig or two of rosemary, thyme or dill would take it to the next level.
