Today our guest post is by Brandy from Living Water Health and Wellness. Thanks Brandy!!

Have you ever been in that place where you realize around lunch time that you have no idea what you’re going to make for dinner that night?  That happened to me one day this week.  We were on vacation last week and I still haven’t gotten my pantry and fridge restocked.  So, what did I do? I rounded up the things I had and threw them all together in the crock pot.   :-)   And you know what? It turned out delicious! That’s why this dish is called Hodgepodge Crock Pot Chicken.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can really use just about whatever veggies you have on hand. 

Simple, right?  And it truly was an amazingly delicious, comforting and wholesome meal!  For more healthy and fabulous recipes, please visit my Recipes page on my blog.

  1. Uh, yumm-o!

  2. Hodgepodge is my kind of cooking :) This looks great!

  3. This looks yummy! I love throw together meals :) Question for Brandy: if you just realized this at lunch does that mean your chicken was frozen? I have never cooked a frozen chicken in the crock pot…does it work?

  4. Great question Nikki! No, the chicken was already thawed. I don’t know that it would get some in a reasonable amount of time if it was frozen. So I guess you do have to have a thawed chicken on hand and then throw in whatever else you have! :)

  5. I enjoy a good crockpot recipe. Thank you for sharing this one.

  6. Nikki, I have cooked frozen chickens in the crock pot before, and it works just fine. IF you’re doing that, you should give it more time (obviously), but also, I would wait to put the other stuff in otherwise it will be cooked to flavorless mush by the time the chicken is cooked. Of course, the recipe DOES say to put the goods on the bottom, but recipes are more like guidelines anyway, right? Depending on the size of the chicken and setting of the crockpot, 8-12 hours total is about right.

  7. Yum! Simple! You’re speaking my language. Thanks! :)

  8. Your recipe looks awesome. Hope you have a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  9. Thank you for your submission on Nourishing Treasures’ Make Your Own! Monday link-up.

    Check back later tonight when the new link-up is running to see if you were one of the top 3 featured posts! :)

  10. The hodgepodge meals often turn out to be the best. Your crock pot chicken looks fantastic.

  11. Could you use skinless, boneless chicken breasts, and if so would that change the cooking time?

    • I would still cook it for the same time if you wanted to use high. I like to use low. I’d cook it on low for around 6 hours.
