Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Roast

Okay, okay, we know. Pot roast is technically a beef recipe, but we couldn’t help it. We love how succulent and tender beef becomes when it’s cooked for hours in a slow cooker, so we just had to try it with chicken. It works beautifully, and in the end, you get a perfectly cooked, juicy chicken and delicious roasted veggies.

For this recipe, we recommend using a slow cooker with temperature probe, such as the Set & Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker, so you’ll be sure not to overcook the chicken.
