This healthy slow cooker chicken is one of my favorite kitchen hacks! Plain slow cooker chicken takes no time to prep, but can be used in a variety of dishes throughout the week. Enjoy this easy, healthy chicken recipe for lunch or dinner alongside your favorite Luvo meal!
Healthy slow cooker chicken is a staple in our house. I’m not always the best at meal prepping, but this is one of those recipes I will take the time (aka 10 minutes) to meal prep!
Michael and I are both busy people, so having the bulk of our meal ready to go in the fridge is such a life-saver. I love making it plain so I can add seasonings, sauces and sides for whatever mood I’m in!
If we’re craving pizza, I’ll pop a frozen pizza in the oven, add some diced peppers, tomatoes + mushrooms, and add the chicken with 10 mins to go on the timer for a healthy pizza.
We also love adding it to pesto pasta, creamy lentil pasta, bbq chicken sandwiches, tacos or alongside one of our favorite meals from Luvo. We are huge fans of their cauliflower mac and cheese! The options really are endless.
What you will need for this healthy slow cooker chicken:
EBTB (everything but the bagel seasoning from Trader Joes)
.. and chicken of course 🙂
You can also add any other seasonings you love. Sometimes I’ll toss in some cumin or crushed red pepper flakes, too!
For this particular night, we decided to pair our easy slow cooker chicken with some Chana Masala from Luvo. This flavorful vegan dish is made up of chickpeas, lentils, brown long grain rice and veggies.
Some highlights from the Chana Masala:
Black Lentils: Rich in dietary fiber, which helps stability blood sugar while providing your body with energy.
Cauliflower: High in antioxidants, vitamins C and K, protein, riboflavin and much more.
Chickpeas: A great source of protein, carbs, folate, fiber and slow-release carbohydrates, which can help stabilize blood sugar.
I also added some feta cheese after the picture was taken and it was so so good! I hope you all will give this healthy slow cooker chicken recipe a try! What’s your favorite way to use plain chicken throughout the week?
