Easy Chicken for Everything

Thank you to Larilyn H. for THE easiest, clean meal prep shortcut we've ever tried!

Makes 12 4-oz servings (measured cooked). 124 calories, 24g protein, 1g carbs, 3g fat.


4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast

1 large, white onion

seasonings as desired (ex. onion or garlic powder, Mrs. Dash assorted flavors, Italian herb blend, etc.)

Cut onion into 8 large sections, break layers out, and spread evenly in the bottom of a crockpot. Add chicken on top of onion, seasoning each layer to taste.  Cover and cook for 12 hours on low or 6 hours on high.  Once cooked, shred the chicken while still in the crockpot, so all the juices are reabsorbed.  Portion 4-oz servings into containers for easy grab-and-go meal prep.  Mix with 1 cup of frozen vegetables and 1/2 cup rice for an easy heat-and-eat lunch; use in wraps, burritos, tacos with whole wheat tortillas, salsa, and lots of vegetables; top a salad; use in omelets or frittatas; endless possibilities!
