Slow Cooker Chicken Breast with Figs & Squash

Best slow cooker chicken recipe from

This chicken is so moist and full of flavor!

Slow cooker recipes are aaaaaaamazing for weeknight dinners.

Gone are the days of scrambling to manage the kids, homework and after-school activities all while making dinner. These days I spend 15-20 minutes in the morning, getting dinner in the slow cooker, and then by dinnertime the house smells like a restaurant and dinner is hot and ready to serve.

It doesn’t get better than that! And it eliminates the temptation to grab a not-so-healthy dinner from a drive thru.

This recipe is extremely simple to throw together, and the end result is chicken breasts that are super moist and flavorful. Serve it up with a dark green salad.
