Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken


2-4 chicken breasts
2 onions
4 carrots (peeled)
6 celery stalks
6 medium red potatoes
3/4 cup chicken broth or stalk
1 tbsp Tastefully Simple ALL NATURAL Seasoned Salt
1 tbsp roasted garlic infused oil by Tastefully Simple
1 tbsp real butter
salt and pepper to taste
rosemary sprigs


Chop your onions, carrots and celery and put in the bottom of your slow cooker in the order given. Add the roasted garlic infused oil on top of all the veggies evenly. Add your chicken breasts on top of the veggies (season them with salt & pepper if you’d like). Chop your potatoes in half and add them to the edges of your slow cooker with the sliced side up. Mix the broth and seasoned salt and pour over everything. Chop a tiny bit of the rosemary (about 1/4 tsp) and sprinkle it evenly over the potatoes. Put the rest of the rosemary in the center over the chicken. Place the butter on top of the rosemary and cover the slow cooker. Cook for 6-8 hours on low. Discard the large rosemary sprigs before serving. Serve in a bowl and gently ladle some of the broth juice onto the entire meal. The chicken will easily fall apart.

Eat your veggies!

I love my veggies, but there are only so many ways to prepare and season them. I get bored with them easily. I started adding one of my favorite seasonings to some pan cooked veggies and loved the results. I have always liked garlic pepper, but the store bought one I used to get would always clump up on me. Tastefully Simple has their own all natural version that is a finer grade than most store bought types. It never clumps! It also adds a ton of flavor to whatever I’m preparing. I hope you try out these recipes and enjoy them.

Garlic Pepper Spinach on the Stove Top

A large bag of ready to cook Popeye spinach
2 tbsps butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp garlic pepper seasoning
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 – 2 tsp salt

Add the olive oil and 1 tbsp butter to a large saute pan and heat over medium to high heat until butter melts. Add in half of the spinach. Stir until it begins to wilt and you have room in the pan for the rest. Add the remaining spinach, salt & garlic pepper. Stir frequently until cooked through (it won’t take long) and then add in the other tbsp of butter. Stir and add in the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Cover and keep warm until the rest of your meal is ready. Scrumptious.

Garlic Pepper Zucchini

One of the quickest side dishes to make. Just cut 3 zucchini into thick chunks. Saute the zucchini for 6-8 minutes (stirring often) in a couple of drizzles of olive oil and season with salt + garlic pepper from Tastefully Simple + a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you like a bit of heat.. This is a yummy accompaniment to any main dish.

Recipe Feature: Quick Homemade Guacamole

Using TS seasonings makes this yummy dip super quick to make. There is very little chopping to do since the onions and garlic are already ready to go into the mix! It has quite a bit of lemon juice (which I love) but feel free to adjust the amount of citrus to your own taste. I love the addition of green chilies and cumin for a smokey accent.

Quick Homemade Guacamole by Heather McCullah

6 avocados
2 small cans diced mild green chilies
1 lemon
1 – 2 jalapenos minced
2 tbsp’s Garlic Garlic™
1 tbsp Onion Onion™
1  1/4 tsp cumin
1 – 2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Mix together the green chilies, jalapenos, garlic garlic, onion onion, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the juice from half a lemon. Add rough chopped avocados and mix together. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. You can also add in cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes for some extra heat. I like to garnish the serving bowl with slices of the other half of unused lemon. Serve with chips or on top of your favorite Mexican inspired meals.
