Refrigerate any leftovers. Make sure they are cooled down completely before putting them in the fridge. They will last for 3-4 days in the fridge.

I have frozen this in the past and didn’t love the results, but it might be worth a shot!

🔍 FAQs

Do you need to chop or pre-cook the chicken?

Absolutely not. The whole point of this recipe is to be easy! 😊

Should I use fresh or frozen chicken breasts?

Either will work just fine. If you use frozen, just make sure they are thawed before adding them to the slow cooker.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Remember you aren’t preparing the seasoning mixes, you’re just adding the dry mix!
  • Add some veggies to the slow cooker like carrots or celery for an easy one-pot meal.
  • If you don’t have pickled pepperoncini peppers, you can use fresh jalapenos or banana peppers.

  1. Hi Katie, could you cook this in the slow cooker on high for 2-3 hours instead of on low for 4-5, also can you omit the peppers all together?
    Thank you 🙂
