Crock Pot Country Chicken


Today I have a simple all in one crock pot meal for you. I love it when you can have a dish that can stand by itself if needed. You can easily add a roll on the side or a nice tossed salad. I love the flavor that this dish gets from some dried dill. So simple and delicious, your gonna love it!

  • I used this recipe as a base, but substituted for what I actually had. I did the chicken thighs with celery, carrots, and potatoes. I didn’t have stock so I used water, and added sliced onions, salt, and pepper. Turned out delicious, and my toddler asked for seconds.

  • I don’t know what all these other people are talking about. I made it with boneless chicken breasts instead of thighs, but I thought it was really good, and I will be eating my whole crock pot full.

    • But I did forget to mention that I was surprised the recipe did not include onions and I used celery seed since I didn’t have fresh celery. I also added onion powder, heavy doses of garlic powder, and mixed the chicken broth with regular Dijon mustard and added the honey. I thought it turned out just yummly : )

  • Not to sound conceited, but I am a pretty good cook. I can usually find a recipe, make it the first time and have it turn out awesome. I was pretty hopeful for this recipe- but it was a huge failure. It isn’t a difficult recipe but the end result is just gross. My fiance ate it and said it wasn’t his favorite but that he could eat it- My 3 year old wouldn’t touch it and I couldn’t get past the first bite. Think of a dill infused beef stew- but instead of beef its chicken. Yeah, it just does not work. I won’t be making this again. Maybe if it didn’t have dill but a softer seasoning ( maybe Rosemary, Basil,etc) , it may have been edible, but only slightly.

  • Ok… so I made this recently, and I followed the recipe exactly as listed above…. and it was NASTY. Completely inedible! My boyfriend and I both took a few bites and ended up eating a frozen pizza. I threw the entire crockpot meal away.

  • Ugh… see, that’s the COLORING on the chicken that keeps me from using my crockpot more often. Even though I like the flavors, that awful “boiled chicken” color just triggers my gag reflex.

    And tips/hints to avoid this?

  • This is in my crock-pot right now. I can not wait to go home and try it!
