Crock Pot Chicken

Standard

Having protein on hand is one of the many problems people run into when trying to eat healthier. Mostly because proteins require cooking and people do not plan ahead! One of Clean Kitchen’s strategies is bulk cooking protein (like chicken) with a plan to use it in several recipes or meals. Here is our “set it and forget it” method, Crock Pot Chicken.

Here we cooked 6 large chicken breast to use in 3 different recipes.

What you will need:

• Several chicken breast

We cook 3+ chicken breast at a time in the crock pot. Just depends on what you are wanting to prep.

• Slow Cooker liners- for easy clean up

• Any seasonings you would like to use. Here are our base seasonings.

– garlic powder

– onion powder

– salt and pepper

Then cover and set on high for 2-3 hours (also depends on how much chicken you are cooking) or on low for 4-5 hours.
