Crockpot Chicken with Roasted Veggies

A few weeks ago, I found a great new recipe from Myra who blogs at Happy Housewife Living Life. We're always looking for yummy, quick, healthy recipes, and this one caught my attention. Chicken in the crockpot? Healthy mix of veggies? How could we pass this up?!

Crockpot Chicken and Roasted Veggies - Adapted from Myra

5-6 chicken tenders
1-2 tsp. Mesquite Chicken seasoning (McCormick's)

1 medium sweet potato, sliced and quartered
8 oz. mushrooms, quartered
2 medium carrots, cut into chunks
1 large zucchini, quartered
~ 1 T olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
sea salt

Place the chicken breasts with just a little bit of water and seasoning in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for ~6-8 hours. (ours were done in about 4 because we used chicken tenders)

About 30 minutes before you want to each, prepare the veggies. Place them in a glass baking dish and toss in olive oil, garlic and salt.

Cover, and bake at 400 for about 15 minutes.

Then, remove the tinfoil and roast for an additional 15-20 minutes, until veggies reach the desired tenderness. Enjoy!

Thanks, Myra, for a great recipe.
