Slow Cooked Chicken Breasts

I use to think about pulling out my slow cooker during the cooler months, after living in the Carolina's for over 28 years, the slow cooker is my go to source during our long hot summers. 

Slow cooked chicken breasts are great with green beans, salad, corn, potatoes, just about any side works, also great to make Chicken Salad. 

I usually purchase the chicken when it is on sale at my local grocery store. I try to keep one or two packages in the freezer so I always have something to prepare for a meal. This recipe uses three chicken breasts with the bone and you can easily double the recipe.

My husband will eat at least one whole chicken breast and I usually eat about half of one. Later this week I will use the remaining chicken in tacos, salad, chili, Chicken Salad Sandwiches, toss with pasta or brown rice and broccoli. Use your imagination!

Slow cooked Chicken Breasts, delicious every time!
Just cook something. Cheers! Kary
