Easy 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken

(Weight Watchers Crock Pot Cooking, Day 23)

Here’s a super simple 3 ingredient slow cooker chicken recipe that cooked up moist and flavorful.

I’m a sucker for those little cooking magazines at the grocery store check out counters.

So, when I saw one last week  titled, “Slow Cooker So Easy!” from the folks at Prevention I decided I had to bring it home with me. The cover promised 33 No-Fail recipes (with nutrition information to make calculating Weight Watchers Points Plus that much easier).

This 3 ingredient slow cooker chicken is the first recipe I’ve tried.

It certainly lived up to its title: Easiest Chicken.

This 3 ingredient slow cooker chicken calls for:

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts

I used Good Seasons dry Italian dressing because it’s what was in the pantry. But when I was at Sprouts the other day, I noticed that Simply Organic has dry Italian dressing mix that I’ll try next time.

Serves: 4
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (5 ounces each)

  1. Coat the slow cooker with cooking spray. (I used my 2-Quart but I think a 3-Quart would work too.)

  3. Sprinkle on the dressing mix.
  4. Pour broth over the chicken.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW 4 to 6 hours, until the chicken registers 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer stuck into the centers of the breasts.

    I have done this in the oven with a bottle of italian dressing — incredible flavor! (I’ve since started using Fat-Free Italian, and the flavor is the same!

      Hi Sarah, I really don’t suggest cooking chicken breasts on high as they are prone to drying out. But a rule of thumb in crock pot cooking is 1 hour on high for every 2 hours on low. Hope this helps.
