Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours and 5 minutes


  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 ½ teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dry thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dry thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a large bowl and coat them with 2 tablespoons of avocado oil. Sprinkle the prepared seasoning mixture over the chicken and toss to coat evenly.
  3. Pour the low-sodium chicken broth into your slow cooker.
  4. Place the seasoned chicken breasts in the slow cooker with the chicken broth.
  5. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. If you plan to shred the chicken, cook for 4 hours, but if you intend to slice or dice it, 3 hours will suffice.
  6. Once the cooking is complete, you can shred the chicken directly inside the slow cooker or drain it and shred it separately, discarding the liquid.
