This super easy slow cooker chicken uses chicken with a Reuben sandwich-style twist. The familiar combination of sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and cheese top these tasty chicken breasts.


  • 32 ounces sauerkraut (jar or bag), rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup Russian dressing
  • 4 to 6 boneless chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese or Monterey Jack

Steps to Make It

  1. Layer half of the sauerkraut in the bottom of the pot. Pour 1/3 cup dressing over it; place 2 to 3 chicken breasts on top and spread the mustard on chicken.

  2. Top with the remaining sauerkraut and chicken breasts; pour another 1/3 cup of dressing over all and reserve the remaining 1/3 cup of dressing for serving.

  3. Cover and cook on low for about 4 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and tender. Sprinkle Swiss cheese and cook until cheese is melted. Serve with reserved dressing.
