Protein is super important to get into your diet. Many of my clients struggle to get enough protein daily. Chicken breast is super high in protein. A 10 ounce chicken breast has about 65 grams of protein.(1) The problem is chicken breast can be bland, and isn’t always super palatable depending on how you cook it. I find the slow cooker to be a great option for cooking chicken breast because it makes the meat tender and helps the meat take in more flavor from the seasonings.
To make the slow cooker chicken place a full package of chicken breasts into the slow cooker. Then pour in any juices left over in the package from the chicken. You can then add chicken stock, water, or another stock/broth option of choice until the bottom of the slow cooker is covered. You can also add more broth/water until the chicken is covered if you want juicier meat. Next you add in your seasonings of choice. I like to add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. These can be added to taste and depending on how much chicken you’re making. Put the chicken on low for 10-12 hours and you have amazing chicken prepped for a couple of days!
