This Crock Pot Pepper Jack Chicken is one of our family's favorite slow cooker dinner recipes. It is a super simple one-pot crock pot meal.
Prep Time5 mins

- 3.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder

- 1 bell pepper- seeded and sliced
- 8 oz fresh mushrooms- sliced
- 1/4 Cup Butter
- 10 Slices Pepper Jack Cheese
Place chicken in the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker and season with garlic powder, onion powder, cumin and salt and pepper.
Layer frozen green beans, then mushrooms and peppers.
Season again with salt and pepper, top with butter and cook on low for 4-6 hours until chicken is shreddable when stirred.
Stir chicken until shredded and then top with cheese on cook on high until the cheese melts.
- We used our 6 quart Ninja to cook up this dish, but you can use any 6 quart slow cooker.
- We now have an Instant Pot version of this recipe too: Instant Pot Pepper Jack Chicken
- The whole frozen green beans may seem like an odd addition, but trust me it is so yummy. We always use whole frozen beans. Fresh beans would likely turn out more crisp and canned would give it an entirely different texture.
- You can use a different cheese than pepper jack, but then the dish won't be pepper jack chicken ;).
- You can use chicken breasts instead of boneless skinless thighs, but the cooking time will likely be less than the thighs. Watch closely so you don't dry out the chicken breasts.
