Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken

This is an easy dinner that simmers all day in the slow cooker. Serve with some brown rice, egg noodles, or cheesy onion beer bread. The leftovers are fabulous on a tortilla with melted cheese. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken

Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp diced green chilies
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 8 oz can tomato paste


  1. In slow cooker, mix together the tomatoes, spices, vegetables and tomato paste. (you can also add in olives, but I knew my family would not eat them). Lay chicken breasts over the top. Turn on low and cook for 6-8 hours.
  2. Shred chicken with a fork and serve with brown rice or egg noodles.
