Crockpot Chicken and Spicy Roasted Potatoes

This is such an easy meal.  I am a huge fan because it takes very little prep time and basically prepares itself.  Serve with some vegetables to get your greens!!

Crockpot Chicken
adapted from various recipes & common sense

  • 16-20 ounces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Enough chicken broth to cover chicken
  • Spices or some type of chicken rub 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place thawed chicken breasts in crockpot.
  2. Rub spice on both sides of chicken.
  3. Pour chicken broth in crockpot to cover chicken.
  4. Set crockpot on high, 3.5-4 hours or low, 7.5-8 hours.
  5. Drain crockpot and serve!
This is my go-to recipe for shredding chicken for soups, chicken bbq sandwiches, and dips.  You can also mix it up by using different spices or flavorings (such as orange juice, etc).
