Slow Cooker Chicken with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

You really don’t need to give up your slow cooker come the summer. If you are busy (aren’t we all) and often out of the house, keep your slow cooker on hand even in the warmer months.

OK, I admit it can’t make a salad but you can still use it for a healthy and light dish full of vegetables and summer flavours, no stew or casserole in sight! Read on for my recipe for slow cooker chicken with Mediterranean roasted vegetables, a colourful and tasty dish.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

This type of chicken and roasted vegetable traybake you might be accustomed to making in the oven works well in a slow cooker too.

If you are short on time and need food on the table as soon as you get home, move your food prep to earlier in the day and switch to the slow cooker instead.

In my busy household this works really well for me and means my kids don’t have to wait too long for dinner when we finally get home after school, clubs and activities. Served with crusty bread, pasta, couscous or rice, and salad/vegetables, all your food groups are covered.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

Once the dish is cooked your vegetables will be soft and cooked in the style of roasted vegetables, without any oil being required.

This makes this recipe perfect for Weight Watchers SmartPoints (and Slimming World friendly too I believe). Using fresh herbs and/or spices is a great way to accentuate the flavours of this colourful dish.

  • 2 red onions sliced
  • 2 courgettes (zucchini) sliced
  • 1 yellow (bell) pepper sliced
  • 1 red (bell) pepper sliced
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 handful Freshly picked basil leaves
  • 1 tsp dried oregano


  • Place the sliced red onions in the base of the slow cooker pot, and the chicken breasts on top.
  • Layer the sliced peppers and courgettes in with the chicken in the pot.
  • Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle the dried oregano over the top.
  • Add some basil leaves into the pot too.
  • Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Try not to leave it any longer or your chicken may dry out.
  • As the chicken cooks juices will be produced in the base of the pot, it will not be cooking dry.
  • Transfer to a serving dish (leaving the juices behind), garnish with more fresh basil and serve. Delicious with pasta and salad for a light meal.


Note: I made this in a large 5.7 litre slow cooker.

I really need to get more adventurous with my slow cooker in the summer months. I am seriously tempted by your sweet potato and halloumi bake.

What a great meal for summer with a lovely salad alongside.


I love all of the Mediterranean vegetables and a good slow cooked meal is a winner in my mind! This is a perfect summers meal x

What a lovely summery meal, I love all those Mediterranean veggies you’ve used x

That sounds very tasty. I love using my slow cooker but it does tend to go away over summer so this is a good idea.

Oh my, I may have to get my slow cooker back out now! I love med veg!! X

That looks fab! So summery! You’re really stating the case for using slow cookers not just in winter 🙂

I could see myself now, eating this alfresco with a lovely glass of wine. It really looks yummy!

It looks lovely and summery! I certainly wouldn’t have thought it was made in the slow cooker – I have neglected mine a bit over the past couple of months so really need to get it out again soon.
