Crock-Pot Creamy Chicken and Sweet Potatoes
This recipe for Crock-Pot Creamy Chicken and Sweet Potatoes came about because I had purchased a bag of sweet potatoes at our local Aldi grocery store at a great price. I just cannot seem to pass up on a good deal!
I already had in mind that I wanted to make a main dish for dinner with the sweet potatoes instead of a typical side dish that you would see at the holidays when most of us, I dare say, eat sweet potatoes.
I don’t know why I don’t eat them more often, they are SO yummy and healthy for you too. Packing all sorts of vitamins and minerals.
The sweet potatoes are cubed up and cooked with chicken. Chive and onion flavored cream cheese adds a just the right amount of creaminess to the whole dish. And a little maple syrup brings out the sweetness in the sweet potatoes and ties the whole thing together.
Because I am horrible about remembering to thaw meat out ahead of time I just used frozen chicken breasts straight from the freezer. There really isn’t any difference in cooking time.
I cooked this dish in my large 6.5 quart slow cooker but you can cook it any slow cooker that is larger than 5 quarts. Just use enough cubed sweet potatoes so that your cooker is not filled more than 3/4 of the way full. If your sweet potatoes are smaller or larger than “average” then just eyeball it.
