Slow Cooker Chicken with Homemade Onion Soup Mix

Slow cooker chicken with homemade onion soup mix is easy and so delicious. I use my slow cooker a couple of times a week.


It’s great coming home from work and having dinner ready. The smell is wonderful when I walk into the house.

Since I have decided to eliminate the processed foods from my diet I started looking for an alternative seasoning for my chicken. Now I make my own onion soup mix, it’s so easy!

I made this simple meal using the mix. It is healthier and less costly than the prepared mixes you find at the store.

Slow-Cooked Chicken Breasts

3 bone-in chicken breast ( you can use boneless chicken just reduce your cooking time) I start with frozen chicken if you use thawed reduce the cooking time by an hour.

2 Tbsp homemade onion soup mix or one package prepared like Lipton onion soup mix

1/2 Cup water

Remove the skin from the chicken

Place them in the slow cooker

Sprinkle onion soup mix over chicken

Add water to bottom of crock pot


Set to cook on low for 5 to 6 hours on low depending on how your slow cooker cooks. They vary, some cook hotter than others. You have to get to know how your slow cooker works.

They will fall apart tender and seasoned all the way through. Watch for any small bones when eating the chicken. This is an easy recipe for a busy day. The flavor is great, you’ll be amazed:)

    This was so easy and so delicious. Thank you! Most recipes claim to be easy, but are not really easy for novices. This was easy and came out perfect. I used chicken breasts (almost fully thawed). It was really good!

    I made this yesterday and it was sooooooooooooo amazing! I used 2 large boneless chicken breasts partly thawed and cooked on low for 3 1/2 hours and it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Can I add vegetables to the slow cooker at start time, ie mini potatoes, onions etc

      Hello Pat,

      Yes you can add the onions, mini potatoes etc… at the beginning. They are so flavorful that way.

      Vegetables like broccoli might get a little mushy.

      Thanks for your question.

      ☺️ Diane
