I’m wanting to cook some chicken breast in the crock pot, and I’m looking for any good seasoning recipes/tips. I’m tired of chicken with basic salt and pepper, I’m still working on my herb skills, so I’m not sure what would be really tasty. Rosemary and garlic? Anyone have a good recipe or even just know of any great seasoning combos?
Nothing requiring sugar or tomatoes please!

Rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper…sooo yummy! With rice or noodles.

I haven’t made it in the crockpot yet but I have a delicious hummus baked chicken & veggie recipe that I think would translate over to a crockpot very well! The hummus gets nice and crusty on top but is still smooth & creamy underneath…
I’ve used pretty much every veggie, not just the ones in the recipe. I would put it in the crockpot with probably twice as much lemon juice/olive oil & some wine (so it’s less possible to stick/burn to the sides) for 4-5 hours….
We also really love adobo seasoning- premixed mexican/SW seasoning we found at safeway; as well as Slap ya Mama cajun seasoning….

Taco seasoning–makes awesome chicken tacos 😀
Also with garlic, butter, rosemary, parsley, salt/pepper and a little chicken bouillon. It leaves some pretty yummy sauce at the bottom.

thanks all! I actually decided pretty shortly after I posted that I was just going to go ahead and try garlic and rosemary, because I wanted to get it going. We don’t have any lemons but I’ll have to try that sometime because I bet it makes a difference.
I’m open to any other recipes anyone has though! I love the crock pot.

We just throw a jar of salsa in with boneless chicken or some Rotel. Easy peasy.

my favorite seasoning is Tony Chachere’s seasoning, its a creole seasoning. my family is from louisiana, its like a season all, a little on the spicy side. i always use that, garlic poweder, onion powder, pepper and a little Mrs Dash. makes chicken so good and flavorful.

@BlondeMissMolly: McCormick’s Barbeque Seasoning is really good. I have been making everything from pulled pork to lentil soup with it lately.
I also like Tony Chachere’s Cajun Seasoning. Add some chopped onions, green peppers and celery along with a can of diced tomatoes to the chicken before cooking for a quick jambalaya-like dish. I usually serve it over or mixed into brown rice.

@CarpefnDiem: Tony’s is also one of my favorite seasonings, love that stuff! 🙂

@BlondeMissMolly: I marinated some overnight in lime juice and assorted dry spices (garlic powder, pepper, oregano, etc), then sauteed it really quick the next day and ate it with shredded cabbage. It was a very light tasting meal. It was quick and super easy. I recommend it!

Trader Joe’s has a 21 seasoning salute that works really well with chicken.

Cavenders Greek Seasoning is great on many things, chicken is one of them.

We use a lot of “pre-mixed” or standard spices / seasonings.
So… the Poultry Spices are common (Sage, Rosemary, Thyme)
But we are also a fan of the packages / bottles like…
St Hubert Spice – BBQ Rub – Montreal Steak Spice for Chicken – Old Bay Seasoning – Zatarains Cajun – Greek Seasoning etc.
When it comes to wet ones… gosh there are like a zillion different kinds of sauces (just BBQ alone there are tons)… BBQ – Honey Mustard – Italian – Greek – Curry – Tandori – Teryaki – and a recent addition for us Sriracha (red rooster).
Hope this helps,
