(2017) Slow Cooker Sweet Pepper Chicken

Recipe Author: Conne Ward Cameron

Cooler temperatures or not, I’m always in need of new slow cooker recipes. This one’s from newleafwellness.biz.


1 to 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, fat trimmed 1-2 medium-sized sweetl pepper, sliced 1 small yellow onion, sliced or diced 4 large garlic cloves, minced 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon salt


Combine all ingredients in crockpot and cook for 3-6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and tender.

Serve with brown rice and broccoli or a salad.  You can also shred the chicken and serve on a tortilla with cheddar cheese.    

To Freeze and Cook Later:

Combine all ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible and freeze for up to three months. To cook, thaw and add to crockpot. Cook on “low” setting for 3-4 hours in a 6-quart crockpot or 6-8 hours in a 4-quart crockpot.
