Slow Cooker Chicken Breasts

After receiving an alarming wake-up call as to what is actually in lunch meat, I sought out a more healthy alternative to fill my sandwiches. The result came out of an experiment of sorts – and a new way of appreciating my slow cooker. It doesn’t get much simpler than this!

Slow Cooker Chicken Breasts (perfect for sandwiches!)


4 to 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Chicken or vegetable broth (or water)

Garlic powder


  1. Place the chicken breasts in a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker. (I’ve thrown mine in semi-frozen and they do just fine!)
  2. Sprinkle garlic powder over each of the breasts.
  3. Using chicken broth, vegetable broth or water (the broth makes it more flavourful), pour the liquid over the chicken until it’s completely covered.
  4. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours until done.


These slice up great and are perfect on a sandwich or wrap. Since they are quite bland, I generally don’t use them as a main dinner dish. I will slice up half the breasts for a quick sandwich filling and freeze the remainder. Just put them in the fridge overnight to thaw and you’re good to go!
