Here are some suggestions for customizing your crock pot chicken potatoes and green beans:
- Use Lipton onion soup mix instead of the dry chicken gravy if desired.
- Use frozen green beans instead of fresh ones! You can add them at the beginning of cooking instead, as they will take longer to cook.

Slow Cooker Tips
Tip #1 You can use bone-in chicken thighs if you need to stretch your cooking time. Bone-in chicken thighs or breasts take longer to cook, so they stay tender for longer.
Tip #2 Use frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones so they hold up while cooking for a longer period of time.
Tip #3 Check the internal temperature of your chicken when getting closer to being done. A safe internal temperature is 165 degrees F.

Allow to cool completely, and then transfer to the fridge in an air-tight container for up to three days.
Store in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Use a piece of tape to label your container with the date you put it in the freezer for easy tracking!
Absolutely! You can add fresh raw chicken or frozen chicken to the slow cooker. The crockpot heats the chicken and cooks it slowly so it stays tender and safe to eat! Make sure the internal temperature is 165 degrees F, so it is safe.
It is not required to brown the chicken before adding it to the slow cooker. If you decide to brown the chicken before adding this is an extra step that does help seal in the extra juices in the chicken to help keep it moist and tender.
Yes! You can put raw chicken in with vegetables to cook in the slow cooker. Everything is being cooked for a slower period of time, so everything in the crockpot will be cooked and safe to eat. Just be sure your protein reaches a safe internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
