Slow Cooker Easy Herb Chicken and Veggies
Like most parents, I find planning what I am going to cook for dinner to be complicated and time consuming. Even if I am using my slow cooker to get ahead of the game.
Sometimes, I just don’t have time to find 15 ingredients, cook meat ahead of time, or chop a bunch of vegetables (okay okay, it is pretty hard to get out of chopping any veggies at all, but I still like to find ways to make it a little easier on myself.)
We were invited by Crock-Pot (yes THAT Crock-Pot) to join in a fun recipe contest. They were kind enough to send me a brand new 6 quart Crock-Pot and a variety of their brand new, barely out in the stores Crock-Pot Mixes.
The goal of the contest was to make a recipe from one of the mixes that they sent us. The mixes that came with the new Crock-Pot were Savory Herb Chicken, Hearty Beef Stew, Original Chili, Savory Pot Roast, BBQ Pulled Pork, and Beef Stroganoff.
They all sounded SO tasty. But I decided to go with the Savory Herb Chicken seasoning mix, as it was a bit more unique for what we have done here at Crock Pot Ladies vs pulled pork or chili.
The nice thing with seasoning mixes is that it’s easy to know how much seasonings one should use, and dried seasonings actually work better in slow cookers when placed with the rest of the ingredients. Fresh herbs work better when you place them within a short time of serving. Since this dish is made in layers, dried herbs will work much better.
The dish was easy to put together, and we found it very delicious. We ate it all up within 2 days, which is pretty good for my little ones. I can’t wait to try out the rest of the mixes!

I would love to try the Hearty Beef Stew…or any of the mixes for that matter. As a single mom to two special needs girls and very little help, crock pot cooking is like a ‘mini vacation’ for me not having to worry about cooking a meal with my busy life! These would be great to use!

I would love to try the Hearty Beef Stew mix. Love making Beef Stew in the Crock Pot and this will be a wonderful addition!!
As a healthcare worker, I work long hours and often don’t have much time to prepare a healthy meal. Using my crock pot ensures I have supper waiting when I get home. This gives me more time to rest my aching feet after a long day! 🙂
I think all the flavors of the new mixes sound tasty. In our kitchen, my husband and I always “tweak” recipes and prepared mixes to our liking, and I’m sure we would find a way to make these mixes work for us!
I raised my family with crock pot meals. Every married couple needs at least one!
Would love to try these.
Making pot roast in my crock pot tomorrow !!! Love how easy it is to do in the crock pot!!! Yum

I have never seen the crockpot mixes and would love to try one. I use my crockpot several times a week.
Sounds really good!!!
Deb Z says
I’m learning to use a crock pot along with my two daughters and sharing recipes with a couple single guy friends of my daughters and a couple friends with large families. I’m up to trying any of the seasonings-they all sound yummy! I also have the “old school” crock that doesn’t have a removeable insert. A programmable one sounds sweet to use!!
I use my crockpot for meals during the week, so easy to have a meal prepared after a long day at work.
Kimberly Harris says
