  • 1 large white onions
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, split
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp parsely
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 pinch salt/pepper

  • 1 crock pot
  • 1 paring knife
Chicken breasts in plastic bags next to an onion and butter and knives.



  1. It's always important to have a safe way to cut anything round. Cooks all agree that it's nice to slice a little bit off of surface, as a place to "set" your onion. Then slice off both ends.
  2. An onion with a slice out of the side.
    Cutting off the two ends of the onion.
  3. Skin the onion and slice it into smaller pieces. I prefer halves, but you can do the whole ring if you want.
  4. Splitting the onion in half and removing the outer skin.
    The onion halves cut into slices.

  5. Now line the bottom with the onions. No need to grease anything.
  6. The onion slices placed in a baking pan.
  7. Slice the chicken into 4 halves, lengthwise. Do your spices on both sides and place them on top of the onions.
  8. Two chicken breasts that have been seasoned.
    The chicken breasts are placed on top of the sliced onions.
    Four chicken breasts next to the pan with the sliced onions.
  9. Melt your 2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter and pour over the chicken. Then add your 3 cups of beef broth. Salt and pepper at the last. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. You can do this with frozen chicken, but add 2 hours cook time.
  10. A container with melted butter.

  11. I love chicken and spuds. So when the dish was done, I removed the chicken and sprinkled a package of instant spuds into the broth and onions. Once mixed, I put the chicken back in and turned off the crock pot and let it sit, covered. This feeds 4 generously with sides. As a single cook, I ate on it for a couple days. It freezes like a dream! Enjoy!
  12. A package of four cheese mashed potatoes.
