Ingredients
  

  • 3 Chicken Breasts trimmed of fat
  • 1/2 Sweet Onion diced
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth low sodium
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp smoked paprika

Instructions
 

  • (Put the slow cooker liner in!)
  • Place diced onion on bottom of slow cooker and turn on low.
  • Trim chicken breasts of excess fat and place on top of onions.
  • Place garlic and herbs on top of chicken.
  • Pour in 1/2 cup of chicken broth around the chicken.
  • Put lid on and cook for 5 hours. Depending on size of chicken breasts, you can check a little early with a meat thermometer. Chicken should register 165 degrees Fahrenheit in thickest section. Don’t cook for more than 6 hours – chicken will become dry and tough.  
  • Freeze unused chicken in freezer bags for up to 3 months.
