I finally perfected the technique of making the best possible chicken breast in a crock pot. With a few helpful tips under your belt you can make this delicious chicken like a pro. It is super easy, perfect for beginner cooks.
The secret to the best chicken breasts is one simple ingredient, butter it is. Even wondered why chicken thighs are always so tender and flavorful, it is because they have three times the amount of fat then chicken breasts. So adding just a little bit of that fat in a form of butter really helps with building the flavor and aiding in juiciness of the chicken.
I use 2.5 quart crockpot, it is the perfect size for 4 or 6 chicken breasts. If you cook just a couple chicken breasts in a larger crockpot, it cooks more quickly and is more prone to overcooking. When you have your slow cooker at least half full, it gives the chicken a little insulation and prevents it from cooking too quickly.
I use a combinations of dried parsley, garlic and onion powders, paprika and black pepper as my seasonings. But you can use any spices that suit your personal palette. Chicken cooked in a slow cooker is perfect for salads , soups, wraps, sandwiches and casseroles or any of your meal preps.
