Course Main Course
Cuisine American, Italian
Servings 4


  • 1 Slow Cooker


  • 4 chicken thighs with the bone in
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 24 oz baby potatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 bottle Italian dressing
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan


  • In a skillet over medium heat, sear the chicken thighs in 1 tbsp of the olive oil. Cook about 3 minutes per side. Make sure the skillet it hot before adding chicken skin-side down. Season each side with 1/2 of the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Add clean potatoes to the slow cooker. Then add the garlic, the remaining garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper.
  • Cut 2 tbsp of butter into cubes or slices. Place in different areas over the potatoes. That way all the potatoes will be buttered when it melts.
  • Add the seared chicken thighs on top of potatoes.
  • Pour the bottle of Italian dressing over the chicken. Salt and pepper the chicken again if desired. Add 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese over the chicken.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan before serving. Serve and enjoy!


You can leave out the garlic clove and additional seasonings if you want. The Italian Dressing has plenty of flavor. I like everything with a lot of seasoning.
