The slow cooker is a tasty, fuss-free way to cook potatoes, and fresh rosemary makes the dish extra-special. Sliced garlic and chicken broth add to the flavor as well. Using the slow cooker makes it especially convenient when the oven and stovetop are being used for other items. 

Serve these easy slow cooker potatoes along with roasted beef or pork or skillet chicken or meat dish.

Feel free to use thyme instead of rosemary, or use a combination of herbs.
