- 1 1/2 lbs raw boneless skinless chicken breasts, halved
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 cups sliced red and green bell peppers
- 2 cups sliced onion
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1. Place chicken in a slow cooker, and season with salt and black pepper. Add peppers, onion, and seasonings. Top with broth, and stir to mix.
2. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.
3. Transfer chicken to a large bowl. Shred with two forks — one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across and shred it.
4. Return shredded chicken to the slow cooker, and mix well.
5. Serve with a slotted spoon, draining the broth.
