Ingredients

  • 4 Boneless Pieces of Chicken (I use breasts)
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth, less 2 tbps**
  • 2 tbsp dry white wine (chardonnay) (optional)*
  • 1 tbsp butter (or margine)*
  • 1 tsp Herbes de provence
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the salt, HDP, garlic, pepper, onion powder and paprika. Season both sides of the chicken.

  2. Add brined chicken broth(**, wine, and butter to slow cooker, and stir to combine (mash the butter up a bit to disperse if you can) - See notes about wine. 

  3. Add the chicken to the slow cooker. don't overcrowd them.

  4. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached.

  5. If you're hoping for clean slices, remove to a cutting board and cover to keep warm. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Recipe Notes

 ** Dry wine adds delicious flavor to chicken dishes. If you decide to use wine, reduce the amount of broth you use.

** Make sure to brine and thaw (if frozen) your chicken ahead of time. 

*Wine is completely optional. I've made it with just broth and it's still delish.

**chicken thighs are fattier than chicken breast so they produce more juice. You can get away with leaving the butter out if you use thighs but I recommend keeping it if you use chicken breast.
