Tips for Making Crockpot Garlic Butter Chicken

– Make sure to cut your potatoes in quarters. Since potatoes take longer to cook you want to make sure to quarter them so they cook in the same time as the chicken and veggies

– Swap the carrots for any veggies that you like. Another good one to try are green beans

– Know your slow cooker! Every slow cooker is different and cooks different. If this is your first time making this you should start checking on the chicken early. You don’t want dry chicken ever!
