Melt-in-Your-Mouth Slow Cooker Chicken

Recipe by  

"This recipe using only three chicken breasts is very economical and super delicious! My kids love it and they are extremely picky. The chicken just melts in your mouth and is so flavorful! Garlic bread and salad goes well with this meal. I always taste before serving so I will know what, if anything more, I need to add such as Parmesan, Italian dressing, or milk if it's too thick, etc."

  • Cook's Notes:
  • The malt vinegar was used in place of wine since I was out last time I made this. Everyone said it was the best to-date so I incorporated it into the official recipe. White wine can be used in place of malt vinegar if desired.
  • Cream of chicken soup can be substituted for cream of mushroom if desired.
  • I don't measure the seasonings, so 1 teaspoon for each is approximate.

I made this exactly as written (except for the malt vinegar, which I did not have on hand) and it was devoured by four picky eaters, all with different tastes! The dish was easy to make, and although the spices and ingredients don't sound like they'd go together -- they do! The sauce was thick, rich and creamy, the chicken tender and juicy. I took the breasts out to shred, gave the sauce a good stir, and then placed the shredded chicken back into the crockpot on low while I made the pasta and side dish (green beans with grape tomatoes in a touch of Italian dressing). Thank goodness -- a new staple that every one can agree on! Thanks!

I only gave this a 3 star because my husband loved it. I disliked it. I think it was the malt vinegar. I want to make it again without the malt vinegar and will give an update then. Malt vinegar is such a strong flavor it was too much.

I have to agree, you don't think these spices would work, but it totally does! Followed this recipe by the book, and it turned out perfect. The whole family loved it!

Made this for dinner last night. Used 4 thawed chicken breasts on high for 3 hours. It totally pulled right apart! Nice and moist! Kept the sauce on the side to spoon over pulled chicken and egg noodles. Yummy. Thanks for the recipe

Tried this yesterday and to be honest when mixing it together I thought I would need to get a pizza cause it did not look like it would be that good. Came home and it smelled wonderful. Only difference I made is using Macaroni noodles because I was out of Angel hair. The kids and hubby devoured it! I think I will stick with Macaroni noodles instead since it just tasted great with them. Thank you for a great recipe.

This is a great recipe and a definite keeper!

When I first read this recipe, I thought the spices on the chicken were a very odd combo. This made me think this dish would be either amazing or terrible. It was amazing! The only change I made (accidentally) was I used cayenne pepper instead of peprika (whooops!), which gave it a really good kick. It was tamed down by the sauce and the pasta, so it wasn't overwhelming (this is coming from someone with a low tolerance to spicy foods!). Very very yummy!
