  • Place a layer of chicken in a slow cooker and cover with about 1/2 of the liquid mixture. Lay on remaining chicken and pour remaining liquid over top.

  • Cover and cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 6 hours, or on High, about 3 hours. Turn off the heat and let rest for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

If using High setting, check on chicken to ensure it isn't sticking to the bottom of the slow cooker.
