Amazing! I don’t know what more to say about this chicken so let’s just leave it at that. Blog post done! Just kidding! Seriously one of the most deliciously juicy chicken breast dinners to come out of my slow cooker, EVER! A creamy honey mustard sauce, pepper jack cheese and just the slightest hint of jalapeno flavor makes this just a little different than your average boring weeknight dinner. My whole family loved it and it was something I would totally serve to company as well.
The idea for this came from our anniversary dinner meal. We went to an amazing little pizza joint and asked our server for her suggestion. She said her favorite pizza was the Honey Jack Pizza and she did not let us down! I’m pretty sure we both devoured about twice as much as should have been allowable because it was absolutely that good!
I was thinking it would be great to try and recreate it at home! But I didn’t make it that far since I had more chicken to use than I would have needed for a pizza. So I decided to revamp and come up with a delicious chicken breast that would be surprisingly healthy while still being rich and delicious. This did not disappoint!
I browned these up with bit of butter in the skillet before adding to the slow cooker just to give them a nice crust and appearance. If you have time I recommend doing it, but if you don’t I think these will still be delicious.
Great sides for this are rice, potatoes, salad or bread! A versatile meal for any day of the week! And it makes wonderful leftovers!
