Super flavorful, spicy, Italian Chicken that takes two seconds to make? Yes, please.
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 8 oz jar sliced pepperochinis (look for the sliced ones vs the whole ones!!)
  • 1 c chicken broth
  • 3 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  1. Place chicken in slow cooker and pour in pepperochinis with the juice, the chicken broth, and the seasoning.
  2. Cook on low for 5½ hours (you can cook it up to 8 hours, I just think 5⅕ hours is perfect!)
  3. Shred chicken, let it hang out in the juices for a while, and serve.
You can also use whole pepperochinis, but I like the sliced because then I can eat pieces of it throughout! But if you want it less spicy, you can use whole and then just toss the peppers when it's done.
Also - it's really not that spicy.
Also also - I LOVE using half and half with thighs and breasts because the thighs give it a little more flavor and juiciness. Feel free to use whatever chicken you want ,but I do find that using all chicken breasts in this recipe makes the chicken a bit dry.
