Place in Slow Cooker 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 and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Garlic Sweet Sauce or Teriyaki Sauce


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