Lemon Dijon Chicken with Potatoes

Lemon-Dijon-Chicken-with-Potatoes This is definitely not the usual slow cooker fare. Or at least isn’t what comes to mind when people think of slow cooker meals. Tender chicken served with potatoes in a flavorful lemon-Dijon sauce accented with dried oregano adds a gourmet flair to the plain chicken and potato dinner.

    What is the purpose of the Cooking Tapioca? I have never used this before. Can you make the recipe without it?

      The quick cooking tapioca acts as a thickener.It seems to be used more in fruit pies.
      I don’t think it would hurt anything to leave it out since the potatoes absorb a lot of the liquid.

    Wow! That sounds so good!! Do you think this recipe would work as a freezer meal?

      You could probably freeze the chicken and sauce before cooking then thaw and add potatoes and continue on but I wouldn’t freeze the potatoes because they might get bushy or meal.
