Savory and Speedy Dinner!

What do you get when you take 8 aromatic piles of herbs and spices:

Happily stir them all together:

Rub them briskly into boneless chicken breasts:

Lay them snugly in the crockpot, pour over some broth, and let slowly simmer?

Why, just some really tasty, yummy-scrummy chicken that's moist and spicy and took all of 5 minutes to prepare!

You must try!

Cajun Roasted Chicken Breasts

3 pounds boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 cup chicken broth

I cut up each chicken breast piece into 3 pieces. Then I mixed all the herbs/spices together and rubbed them on all sides of the breast pieces. Lay pieces in slow cooker and pour on 1 cup of chicken broth. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 4-5 hours.


  1. i do believe i smell it cooking from hear and it smells yummy!

  2. Oh wow, that sounds wonderful...and divinely simple. I have all those ingredients already. I believe I'll have to give this a try this weekend. I love it when you share your recipes!
    Also wanted to say...your new blog header is gorgeous. I am lovin' the red gerbers against the blue backdrop of your wall. Absolutely fabulous! I'd love to know the paint color name and brand you used on your bathroom.

  3. ooooh looks super yummy - do you guys eat it over rice or what is a good way to eat it?

  4. m..m..m -- I am not a big fan of cooking,so for me simple is great. These look very simple and sound very yummy -- they are on the menu for this next week while my daughter is home. She likes simple cooking too : )
