Pot Roast Chicken: Slow Cooker Chicken That Tastes Like Pot Roast

I love pot roast. It is a quintessential comfort food. When I decided that I wanted to cut back on the amount of red meat and fat that I eat, I thought I would have to give up those comforting flavors from my childhood.

It turns out that I was wrong. I have discovered that cooking chicken in beef broth gives it a hint of that pot roast flavor without all of the extra fat.

On top of that, cooking it in the slow cooker makes it super easy.

If you are looking for a healthy way to fulfill your pot-roast cravings, give this recipe a try. I bet you will be happy that you did.

Slow cooker chicken with all of the flavor of pot roast. If you want to, you can even toss in some potatoes, carrots and fresh onion - just increase the amount of liquid and the cooking time to accommodate the extra ingredients.
Serves: 4+
  • 4 Chicken Breasts (You can use boneless skinless, however it can dry out easily. We use bone-in. When cooked, the skin comes off easily, and it is tender enough to pull off the bone with a fork.)
  • 2 - 14 oz cans beef broth
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 packet dry onion soup mix
  • 1 packet dry Italian dressing mix
  • 1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
  1. Put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker.
  2. Cook on High until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, approximately 3 - 4 hours.
You should always cook chicken to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. I recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure that you cook the chicken to a safe temperature without overcooking it.
