This collection of Crockpot Chicken Chicken Breast recipes brings together two of my favorite things.
I love the Crockpot! Slow cookers are some of the handiest gadgets around; they can cook all sorts of foods, ranging from sweet cinnamon roll casseroles to stocky beef stews.
When it comes to foods that cook well in a crockpot, the list isn’t short by any means, but chicken breast is one of my absolute favorites.
Well the first reason is that chicken breast is a healthy ingredient But don't take my word for it, here's what Healthline had to say:
"Chicken is rich in an array of important nutrients and can be an excellent addition to a healthy, well-rounded diet.
Given that chicken is low in calories but high in protein, it may be especially beneficial for weight loss, if that’s a goal for you."
Studies show that increasing your intake of protein may enhance feelings of fullness, increase weight loss, and help maintain lean body mass"
The second reason I love cooking chicken breast is because it is incredibly adaptable and works with a wide range of sauces, veggies, spices, and more. So, you'll never be short on possibilities when you want to cook a chicken breast dish with your crockpot.
The list of recipes we’ve gathered for you includes various chicken breast dishes; some have sweet and savory ingredients, some are piquant, and others have citrusy components to make your palate tingle.
Not to mention, many of these recipes work for both lunch and dinner, and some even have accompanying veggies, which is always a good thing.
Some of the top-tier choices include Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken, Crockpot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, and Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan. So, no matter if you want Greek, American, Mexican, or Italian-style chicken, we’ve got it on this list for you.
This chicken breast recipe from Crock-Pot Ladies is anything but bland with various herbs and seasonings such as thyme, basil, and paprika. It's incredibly simple and perfect for busy days when you want to pop something in the crockpot and let the appliance do the work! We recommend you pair it with sautéed vegetables, like asparagus, carrots, or broccoli, for a hearty yet healthy supper. Of course, serving it over rice is just as delicious and light.
If you're on the lookout for a recipe with the ultimate balance of zesty and savory, look no further. This Crockpot chicken dinner becomes flavorful because of the fresh lime, sesame seeds, cilantro, and minced garlic that enrich the chicken. The garlic flavor is especially pronounced since the recipe calls for fresh garlic rather than powdered. The sauce ensures the chicken is perfectly juicy; serve it with vegetables, pasta, or quinoa to make it complete.
Who doesn't love healthy comfort food? This crockpot chicken breast recipe stands out because it has a variety of nutritious vegetables, tender chicken, creamy broth, and delicious seasonings. Aside from that, our favorite part is the country biscuits because they bring the whole dish together and make it much more comforting. Not to mention, this recipe makes 10 servings, so it is perfect for serving a crowd!
With only a handful of elements, this meal from The Recipe Critic couldn't be more convenient for weeknights. What makes this dish Italian-style is the inclusion of an Italian seasoning blend, which is usually comprised of basil, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, sage, and more. In addition, the chicken and potatoes are tossed in oil to ensure they crisp up and become gorgeously browned. We suggest serving this alongside green beans to give the food a nice pop of color!
We can't get enough of this umami-filled crockpot chicken dish. Not only does it have fresh sliced mushrooms, but it also contains cream of mushroom and chicken soup, which impart it with savory flavors. Additionally, the recipe uses an onion soup mix, making it a trouble-free dish because you don't need to measure multiple seasonings. To polish it off, serve this meal with brown rice, additional veggies, or even a light side salad.
What's better than a chicken dish with tangy Dijon mustard and pure maple syrup to soothe the spiciness? It is a combination like no other, and it only requires a short time to prep. Furthermore, the homemade sauce covers the chicken while it cooks to produce a succulent final product. We recommend serving this tangy, sweet chicken with creamy potato salad, grilled corn, or better yet, both.
This crockpot chicken breast recipe from Café Delights shines because it includes a homemade rub for the meat and the buttery garlic sauce. So, you don't need to worry about your slow cooker chicken coming out dull or dry. You can even sear the chicken before you throw it in the crockpot, which gives it a deeper color and a smoky undertone. This dish is excellent for when you want to impress people with your cooking skills!
Balsamic vinegar has a rich, sweet, yet tart taste and a deep color that contrasts against lighter ingredients in dishes. No matter what you accompany it with, it elevates the food's appearance. This crockpot chicken dinner from Amanda Cooks & Styles is phenomenal because the vinegar is paired with brown sugar and garlic to bring out its best qualities. To complete the dish, we recommend serving it with Caprese salad, which also tastes wonderful with balsamic.
Of course, we couldn't make a chicken breast roundup without including at least one teriyaki chicken recipe. Dinner at The Zoo created this recipe which uses sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, and more for the teriyaki sauce base. The chicken cooks low and slow while coated in the sauce, which makes for a luscious result. Sprinkle on green onions to add pizzazz, then serve it with your favorite grains or veggies.
Not every crockpot chicken breast recipe has to use whole chicken breasts. This is where our recipe for slow-cooker chicken stew comes in. For this recipe, we cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes and throw them in the crockpot, along with chicken broth, potatoes, carrots, onions, and more. This meal is perfect for a rainy day and satisfies the need for comfort food without being unhealthy, so it's the best of both worlds.
Tomato and basil are a heavenly pair, which is why tomato basil soup is so darn delectable. You can achieve a similar effect when you make this recipe from The Recipe Rebel. It’s unbelievably easy and works as an entrée, so don’t worry about coming up with ideas for sides. The chicken is flavored with basil, black pepper, and tomato sauce. However, the heavy cream is arguably the most essential because it makes it ultra-creamy.
Who said cranberry chicken is only for the holidays? You can enjoy the scrumptious combination any time you’d like with the help of this crockpot chicken dish from Real Housemoms. This recipe combines cranberry sauce and BBQ sauce to create a tangy, smoky flavor that soaks into the chicken as it slowly cooks. Since the recipe only makes chicken breasts, it gives you plenty of wiggle room to experiment with garnishes and sides.
The fact that you can create chicken casserole in a crockpot is impressive, and the good news is that it's exceptionally easy, even for busy folks. Dash For Dinner made this recipe with only a small number of ingredients; the magic is in how you layer the components. When you dig into the final product, you’re met with a layer of stuffing mix, creamy soup, cheese, and tender chicken. We suggest you garnish it with fresh parsley!
Chicken and gravy don’t have to be unhealthy; making it in the crockpot is undoubtedly healthier than making fried chicken. For this recipe created by Dinner Then Dessert, you shred the chicken after it cooks, which makes it easier to eat and ensures every bit of chicken is coated in thick gravy. It wouldn’t be a complete if you didn’t serve it with a bed of peas, so don’t skip out on the veggies.
Chicken and stuffing place high on the list of foods that instantly appease our hunger, so this crockpot chicken recipe is one for the books. With green beans, stuffing mix, cream of chicken, and more, it will surely please anyone who has the honor of trying it. Serve it for a family gathering or make it on a casual weekday; you can’t go wrong with BellyFull’s recipe.
It’s no secret that we love our Weight Watchers recipes; they’re equally nutritious and flavorsome. You might wonder what white chicken chili is if you’ve never tried it. Traditional chili has a tomato and beef base, but this kind uses chicken broth and breasts, which gives it its famous light color. Moreover, it also has white beans and onions, so all the components are visually appealing and taste heavenly as ever.
This crockpot chicken recipe will impress anyone, even the picky eaters. It is a breeze to accomplish and has rich flavors of Swiss cheese, chicken broth, onions, and more. We think it is the perfect entrée to accompany grilled or sautéed squash. Since the chicken is so filling, you only need a light, nutritious side. Adorn it with chili pepper flakes to give it a fiery kick!
Tex-Mex meals, which often have black beans, canned veggies, and cheese, are the perfect way to add spice to your life. This recipe from Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen does just that, except it uses jarred salsa instead of canned vegetables. The supper has hints of beans, cilantro, rice, and juicy chicken breast meat. You can even use this for meal prep lunches to get you through the week!
It’d be a real shame to make a chicken breast recipe list without mentioning Hawaiian chicken, which always has the ideal harmony of sweet and sour flavors. This chicken is smothered in homemade sauce, then covered with tart pineapple chunks. Place all the prepared ingredients in the crockpot and prepare for the ultimate dining experience. Of course, we suggest you serve this chicken with white rice.
A Southern Soul makes lunch or dinner much easier with her 5-ingredient buffalo chicken. For this dish, the chicken breast meat slowly cooks in a homemade sauce, so much so that it effortlessly shreds after you cook it. From there, you can use it in sandwiches, wraps, or even salad toppings; the options are endless. Just be careful. Buffalo sauce has some heat to it!
Suppose you’ve ever had broccoli mac and cheese; you know just how divine the combination is. Luckily, with this crockpot recipe, you can create a chicken meal reminiscent of those flavors, but without the pasta. The dish's components include mushrooms, broccoli, onion, and sharp cheddar cheese. The chicken turns marvelously juicy since it is cooked at such a low heat, making it hard to resist.
Where are all of the cream cheese fans at? We’ve got a fabulous recipe for you to try out from Simply Stacie. The recipe uses boneless chicken breasts, which are cooked in conjunction with mushroom soup, cream cheese, and plenty of seasonings that bring out the best qualities in the meat. Don’t forget to garnish the meal with something refreshing, such as fresh parsley or chives, and you’re on your way to pure bliss.
This recipe is ideal for on-the-go folks who don’t want to sacrifice delicious foods just because they have a busy schedule. The creamy ranch chicken only requires five ingredients, and if you start the crockpot just after lunch, it will be ready just in time for dinner. Are you familiar with ranch seasoning mix? You can buy it in packets for this meal; it is an effortless way to supply your food with plenty of creamy, tasty flavors.
Here is a crockpot chicken breast meal with velvety alfredo sauce and fork-tender broccoli for your enjoyment. Although you might think the term ‘chicken alfredo’ means that pasta is involved, there isn’t (but you can certainly serve it with some!). The elements that make this recipe stand out are the freshly shredded parmesan, Cajun seasoning, and chili pepper flakes. Evidently, the chicken takes on layers of flavor due to those components.
Greek food is known for its colorful, light, and flavor-packed dishes. The pepperoncini peppers, kalamata olives, and Greek seasoning guarantee that your crockpot chicken meal will taste authentically appetizing when you make this recipe. Use boneless skinless chicken breasts for optimal results. Once cooked, Easy Family Recipes squeezes fresh lemon juice on top of the meat to make it fresh. This recipe is ideal for lunch and dinner, don’t neglect how versatile it is!
We’ve covered zesty lime chicken, but how about a lemon chicken recipe? Citrus does an excellent job of making any savory or sweet recipe a bit more refreshing. This crockpot recipe is especially lovely because it has the perfect mix of creamy and tangy, thanks to the heavy cream and fresh lemons. Since this dish only has chicken and sauce, we propose that you serve it with something like tomato cucumber salad or roasted sweet potatoes.
Marry Me chicken is an adored dish typically consisting of chicken with a creamy tomato parmesan sauce, although there are different variations. For this rendition, cook the chicken breast in a crockpot rather than sautéing or baking it. We love that you can make this classic meal with the help of your crockpot. The chicken broth, sun-dried tomatoes, and butter have ample time to hydrate and flavor the meat.
Chicken parmesan is another well-known dish that you can make in the crockpot. Usually, chicken parm has breaded meat, tomato sauce, and plenty of cheese, creating a meal with crisp and gooey textures. In this variation, the chicken is coated with Italian seasonings, breadcrumbs, and other spices, so it is bursting with flavor. Serve on a bed of spaghetti or alongside buttered garlic bread for a meal that will make your mouth water.
This meal uses ranch seasoning similar to the Creamy Ranch Slow Cooker Chicken recipe we shared above, except for a few major ingredient differences. For our take on ranch chicken, we include bacon bits, cream cheese, and reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese. Allow the tender chicken to cook on low for several hours; then, you can dig in, knowing that your meal is not only yummy but also good for you.
Next time you crave a chicken dish with a bit of zing, lean toward this Catalina chicken dish. What is Catalina dressing or sauce, you ask? If you make it from scratch, it usually has ketchup, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, oil, and seasonings. However, this crockpot recipe is easy because you use store-bought Catalina dressing and pair it with the chicken, onion soup mix, and peach preserves. The finished product is simply irresistible!
Our buffalo mac and cheese deserves a spot on this lineup because it magically transforms chicken breasts and noodles into something quite special. Additionally, it is healthier than the average macaroni dish because it uses yogurt as one of the creamy components. Once finished, the dish has juicy shredded chicken, pasta, a cheesy, creamy sauce, and, best of all, a spicy kick from the buffalo sauce.
