Slow Cooker Chicken? sounds intriguing doesn’t it – read below because this recipe could change your life!
 We all live very busy lives and sometimes adding variety to your healthy eating regimen can get more difficult – Enter slow cooker chicken!  The slow cooker is a great way to allow your dinner to cook while you are out at work, running around with the kids, or taking a nap! Meal prep is made very simple with this recipe because it makes a large serving to last a week (if feeding one person).  Eating healthy for one person or for a family doesn’t have to be boring, taste bland, or consist of the same meals on a weekly basis.  Let’s get creative and even with the recipe below you can add spices or other flavoring to the chicken (be careful of hidden calories and sodium – read all about smart seasoning here)
Enough small talk – let’s get to the good stuff!
