A homemade rosemary dijon sauce cooks on top of chicken and your preferred potato in this easy and healthy slow cooker recipe.
The chicken. You can play around here. I usually use chicken thighs or legs because dark meat is less likely to overcook/dry out in the slow cooker. If you decide to use white meat (totally okay), then reduce the cook time by an hour or so. But really you can use any cut of chicken: thighs, legs, boneless, skin-on, etc.
The sauce. Like a lot of my recipes, this is all about the homemade sauce. This rosemary dijon sauce is light yet flavorful and it’s also low-carb. Remove the potatoes from this recipe and you have yourself a low-carb meal as well.
The potatoes. I wanted this to be paleo so I used white sweet potatoes. Yes they exist. Most people think of orange flesh-colored yams when they hear sweet potatoes but in fact sweet potatoes come in many colors including white and purple. You can use potatoes rather than sweet potatoes if you want. Waxy potatoes like yellow or red are personal favorites.
