Crockpot 3 Ingredient Chicken & Sweet Potatoes
Crockpot 3 Ingredient Chicken & Sweet Potatoes is such an easy freeze slow cooker meal and it’s whole 30 compliant, gluten free and healthy too! But most important is that it tastes great with so few ingredients. You only need chicken, sweet potatoes and chicken broth plus spices. You do not have to add the spices but I wanted to give this dish some deep, full flavor so I suggest you add them. This is the perfect recipe for fall!
A while back I had some chicken and sweet potatoes that I needed to use or they were going to go bad. So I cubed the chicken and added to a freezer bag. I then peeled and cubed the sweet potatoes and added them to the bag. I froze the bag in the freezer. So one morning I was looking to see what I was going to make for dinner that night and came across it. I decided to create this recipe using my leftovers.
All I needed was chicken broth and spices to make a great healthy dish. I put the frozen chicken and sweet potatoes in the crockpot. (You can certainly use fresh chicken and sweet potatoes too!) Next I added a can of chicken broth. Then I added salt, pepper and minced onion on top. I let it slow cook all day and let me just say the end result was ah-mazing! Be sure to try this easy, delicious Crockpot 3 Ingredient Chicken and Sweet Potatoes freezer meal! I am so happy for these leftovers because they helped me create a delicious dinner recipe the whole family loved.

how long would you think to cook it if the chicken and sweet potatoes are fresh?
We used fresh sweet potatoes 🙂
I just made it today with fresh chicken and sweet potatoes and still put it in for the 8 hours on med. Waiting to have it for dinner with my hubby.
How many ww points for the purple plan?
How much is “one can” of chicken stock? Thanks!
14.5 oz. I updated the recipe too! Thanks!
I actually use “it’s better than bullion ” chicken paste or cubes. It’s less than $6 and the whole jar of paste lasts me a few months. It’s 1 tbs to 8oz of water and is great for soups or just to moisten and flavor meals. I prefer it over the cans of chicken stock. I use the low sodium.
So absolutely delicious. I loved every bite! Thank you!
Can you use fresh stuff if you are leaving it on low for 8 hours?
approximately what size (measurements) does this recipe call for of chicken breasts & sweet potatoes? thanks
1 1/2 cups chicken and approximately 3½ to 4 cups chopped sweet potatoes.
Really dumb question but when you originally put your chicken and sweet potatoes in the freezer, was your chicken already cooked and just needed eaten or was it a fresh breast you just cut up and threw in with the potatoes? Want to prep that stuff tonight and make it something I throw in later in this week one morning. Thanks!
It was not cooked (raw)
Hi, I already froze two chicken breasts and would like to use them for this recipe. Can you use whole chicken breasts (frozen or thawed) for the recipe and cut them up later? And if so, how much longer would you need to let the chicken cook in the slowcooker?
I have made this with frozen (not thawed) and really didn’t add any additional time 🙂
Recipe sounds great! I want to make for dinner tonight..do you think it’s possible to cook on high? Also, do you think it would taste good over rice?
Yes and yes 🙂
Hi. If I cook on high, how long should it take?
If I wanted to add frozen peas of green beans, would I add them in toward the end?
I would add fresh green beans at the start. I would add frozen at the end.
Quick question: Would this be good with butter beans thrown in?
I’m trying to get my other half & my son to eat a bigger variety of… well… everything! Haha.
& I’ve got a couple of tins of beans in my cupboard.
I’m thinking add them towards the end?
Yes! I think that sounds good. I would add towards the end so they don’t get mushy.
I am not a cook. That said, I made this without using pepper and onions. Since it needed something to give it a bit more flavor, I made a small bowl and tried adding maple syrup and pecans. Yummy. To make it a bit different I tried another bowl with cranberry sauce instead of the syrup. YES! If you do this, be sure to top it off with added pecans before enjoying.
It’s like a thanksgiving pot pie. If I had stuffing, I imagine that would make it even better, like leftovers altogether. 🙂
Delicious!! I actually used fresh chicken & sweet potatoes, 4hrs low 2hrs high. I actually added half an onion and a whole green pepper. It just seemed to be missing something, so I added two cloves in the 5th hr, it came out perfect. I’m thinking about a bit of ginger and maybe some cornbread also next time. Great recipe!!
Can i convert this to pressure cooker? And do you have any tips on how to do that?
I can’t believe how flavorful this was!!!! So easy and soooo yummy!! Will make again and again
