Crock Pot Pepper Chicken {Slow Cooker}

Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 5-6 servings

Ingredients

Place in Crock Pot right away

  • 3 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, crushed

Sautee 30 minutes before Chicken is done cooking

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 bell peppers, cut in thin strips
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil

Add at the end

  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 3 Tbsp Garlic Sweet Sauce or Teriyaki Sauce

Instructions

  1. Put 2 chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock pot. Pour the chicken stock on top.
  2. Add mustard seeds and garlic powder.
  3. Set the timer to 6 hours and the temperature to “high”.
  4. Turn the breasts over about 2 times throughout the cooking, doing it for the first time 3 hours into the cooking process.
  5. About 20 minutes before the chicken is ready, sauté the onions in a skillet with 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil, until slightly golden.
  6. Add strips of bell pepper and sautee some more until the pepper has taken on some color and became tender.
  7. Once the chicken is ready, shred it with two forks. Do not remove the leftover liquid, it will help to keep chicken moist.
  8. Add sautéed onion & pepper & the sauce of your choice (Garlic Sweet Sauce/Teriyaki Sauce). Season with freshly ground black pepper & salt to taste.
  9. Serve hot on a toasted bun.

    where do you buy mustard seeds? Will it be ok if I just use ground mustard instead? Also what kind of teriyaki sauce should I use? Thank you

    • Hi Vera,
      I buy mine in the bulk section at WINCO, but I think any store has them either in the spice section in little jars, or you can find them in the bulk section of Whole Foods.
      If you don’t have them it’s not a big deal if you don’t add them at all, they don’t give off a very strong aroma or any aroma that you could say that it’s definitely from the mustard seed. I have it on hand and just use it as part of the blend of other spices, but its ok if you don’t use it at all. Ground are fine too.
      I use Mr. Yoshida Teriyaki sauce, but any brand that you like is fine in this recipe.
