Recipe Notes

  • You can use boneless/skinless chicken breasts or thighs or a combination, which is what I used because I like the blend.
  • To reduce sodium, I used only one packet of soup mix instead of two. Instead, I used fresh onion and my own seasonings to ensure there was plenty of flavor.
  • I used carrots instead of green beans. Feel free to use whichever you prefer.
  • I used fingerling potatoes, but any small potato would work if sliced.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. In your slow cooker, place the chicken on the bottom in as close to a single layer as possible. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, if desired. Sprinkle the garlic powder, paprika and turmeric over the chicken.
  2. Add the chicken broth, then sprinkle the soup mix over the chicken, ensuring it's evenly distributed.
  3. Add the onions.
  4. Add the carrots and potatoes and ensure they're spread over the chicken. Toss lightly to coat vegetables in the mixture.
  5. Cover the slow cooker with the lid. Cook on high heat for 4 hours or on low heat for 8 hours.
  6. Serve on its own or over rice or pasta, or with a side of fresh-baked bread.
