This recipe is a great way to cook frozen chicken breasts without having to thaw them first. The chicken cooks slowly in the crockpot, so it is moist and flavorful. The chicken can be shredded and used in a variety of dishes, such as tacos, burritos, salads, or sandwiches.

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • Place the frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, water, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the broth mixture over the chicken breasts.
  • Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and shreds easily with a fork.
  • Shred the chicken with two forks and serve as desired.


  • You can add other ingredients to the crockpot with the chicken, such as vegetables, rice, or beans.
