This is part 5 of my 5-part series, "Go to Meals". These are recipes I do on a weekly basis that I find easy, quick, cheap, and healthy.
Part 1: roasted veggies
Part 2: Easy frittata
Part 3: Paleo Shepherd's pie
Part 4: Smoothies
Super low-maintainence and warming, this is perfect for winter nights. Although I do find myself making this year-round because of how tasty, easy, and cheap it is.
I like to make a large amount of this and freeze the extra chicken and broth to use in other recipes or salads.
For the TL;DR people: chop up veggies, throw everything in te crockpot, leave it on low for 8+ hours, go out and do cool stuff, come back, and boom, you're done.
Now for the step-by-step version with pictures
Chop up your veggies into pieces...
Put the chicken in the crockpot and pile the veggies around it, however they fit...
Sprinkle it with salt and seasonings, then fill the rest of the crockpot up with water. Make sure the lid fits.
Turn it on low and leave it 8-12 hours, dpending on what is convenient for you. Heck, I'm sure 14 hours would be ok. You can totally leave the house and do whatever you want. It's impossible to screw up.
Come home, and boom, dinner's done. Woohoo!
Also, if you did a lot of chicken, you can have leftover chicken and broth to use another day!
