Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day – Easy 3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken
Here’s a super simple slow cooker chicken recipe with only 3 ingredients, that cooks 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 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.
Skinny on Weight Watchers Friendly 3-Ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe
This super-simple slow cooker chicken calls for:
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Dry Italian dressing mix
- Reduced sodium chicken broth
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 may try next time.
Chicken breasts can dry out in the crockpot if you cook them too long. Mine were done after 4 hours on LOW.
If you’re going to be away from home longer than that, you’ll want a slow cooker that can automatically flip to warm or substitute boneless skinless thighs—which hold up better to long hours of cooking.
