Paula's Chicken With Leeks


Thanks to Paula for sharing this tasty chicken recipe. If you can't find the Knorr leek soup mix in your area, it is sold online by Amazon.com. Or, try a different creamy Knorr soup mix with this recipe.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 3 to 4 pounds chicken parts, bone-in
  • 4 to 6 potatoes, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 package leek soup mix
  • 1 thinly sliced leek or 4 sliced green onions
  • 1/2 to 1 cup water
  • paprika
  • Seasonings *


Layer potatoes in bottom of slow cooker/Crock Pot, top with onion or leek, and then add chicken. (If you will have several layers of chicken, salt and pepper bottom layers as you put them in. Don't season top layer yet.) Mix leek soup with approximately 1/2 cup water; pour over all. Season top layer of chicken. At this point, I also sprinkle with paprika to give it color.
* If you like, add minced garlic and some fresh rosemary to season. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours, adding more water if needed.
