Slow Cooker Chicken Bruschetta

Yes, the slow cooker is my best friend.

Have you tried cooking with a baby?

It ain’t easy.

Generally if my husband is home before dinner time or if I can get my baby girl entertained with some toys and her brother doesn’t take them away, then dinner might get made.


I’m a food blogger, I take pictures of dinner too.  So dinner is just a bigger ordeal than it is for most families and it’s already normally a bit of an ordeal in between school, after school activities, babies…etc.


What makes it NOT an ordeal?

Slow Cooker and Freezer Meals.

Those are both becoming my two best friends!

This past week, I have been on a bruschetta kick because of all the tomatoes we currently have.  This time, I decided to try my bruschetta recipe over chicken and without bread crumbs.  I am sure you could still add bread crumbs too.

At first, my husband was skeptical of this recipe.  I actually prepped it the night before and crushed garlic in a slow cooker all night is extremely strong!  He woke me up just to tell me about it.

He ate his words though later because he loved dinner!

I would say to keep this recipe in the slow cooker right about 6-8 hours.  I left it in 8 hours and tried it and it was moist and juicy!  Pure Perfection!  I set it to warm and let it go a few more hours until dinner time and it was still delicious but not nearly as moist as it was earlier in the day.

You will love this though…plus it’s light and healthy!  It’s perfect paired with fresh veggies or a wonderful salad!

Slow Cooker Chicken Bruschetta


  • 2 Medium Sized Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast

  1. In a 5 quart slow cooker, spray it with non stick cooking spray.
  2. Place the chicken on the bottom.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, parsley, basil, and oregano.

    I am thinking about making this for a diabetic. Do you have the nutritional break down of this recipe?


    • Kristy Stillreplied March 18th, 2014 at 12:12 pm

      I do not but you can use and I believe it will give you the breakdown.

    Great recipe! I added half a red onion and 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar to the crockpot. I shredded the chicken and mixed it with angel hair pasta. My girl friend’s new favorite meal.

      Oh that sounds like delicious additions! I am so happy that you all enjoyed it! It’s one of my favorites too.

    Frozen or fresh chicken?


    • Kristyreplied August 2nd, 2014 at 7:25 pm

      You can do either, but I usually semi-thaw mine for frozen.

  5. Lauraposted October 5, 2015 at 8:43 am

    chop basil & parsley, right? Are your measurements before or after chopping?


  6. Kristyposted October 5, 2015 at 8:45 am

    They are before and you can very lightly chop them. It doesn’t need to be fine.

    can i use bone-in chicken breasts and if so, adjustments to the recipe? i’m assuming you used boneless though the recipe does not specify.


    • Kristyreplied November 13th, 2015 at 9:47 am

      Thank you for mentioning that I just updated the recipe. I would not advise using bone-in or you may have fragments of bone in the stuffing.

    Such a great recipe! As someone else said, I also added balsamic vinegar and it was so yummy! Next time I’ll try adding the red onion from that person’s suggestion too. Thanks for the recipe!
