Rosemary Crock-Pot Chicken Breast

Alright it’s official! I’m so in love with crock-pot cooking! It’s been coming in handy for busy work days followed by packed evenings. And I’m especially pumped now that it’s fall and I’m in the mood for hot, hearty meals!

Fueling perks:

  • 1 ounce has 7 grams of protein
  • Pre-workout: pair with plenty of carbs 2-4 hours before a session
  • Post-workout: again pair with plenty of carbs ideally 1-2 hours after a session
    • A 3:1 to 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein is ideal

The Stuff

  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • Onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of rosemary
  • 1/4 cup of chicken stock (or 1/4 cup of water + 1/4 teaspoon of chicken bullion powder)
  • Drizzle of oil

The Steps

  1. Season chicken breasts on both sides
  2. Place in the crock pot and drizzle with oil and add the chicken stock without washing off the spices
  3. Cook on high for 2 hours until cooked through
  4. Slice and serve

Did you make it? I’d love to see how it turned out! Tag @climbingdietitian on instagram.
