Chicken breast in the crock pot?

I have never put chicken in the crock pot but was wondering if anyone had any yummy recipes? I was thinking putting soup over it. Suggestions?

  • We've put those whole little chickens in the crock. Put it in with whatever marinade you want, let it cook for however long it says and it is very moist and yummy when done.

  • I cook chicken in the crock pot all the time and have a bunch of different recipes. Since I don't know what your family likes in the way of seasonings, it is hard to pick one. You can do pretty much anything in the crock that you can do in the oven, so if you have a favorite recipe, it can probably be adapted for the crock. If you want more information, let us know. The name of the book I have is FIX-IT AND FORGET-IT LIGHTLY. All the recipes are dieter friendly(low-fat, low-sodium, etc.) and every one I've made has been delicious.

  • I've done it - I use and the Fix it and Forget it book that the pp's have said.
    One thing I learned, is that chicken in a crockpot does not need to cook more than 4 hours or else it's too dried out.
    Or I'm just a horrible crockpot chicken cook!

  • when I throw in chicken breasts I just put seasoning salt and butter in with it, it is so simple and so good

  • Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken Soup would work over chicken in the crockpot.
    Go to for some good recipes.

  • i start with frozen chicken as well in the crockpot. Cover with a can of tomato juice (small) and taco seasoning. Shred it up and serve with tortillas and taco seasonings.
