  • 2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk reduced-fat
  • 1/2 cup white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat panko bread crumbs


  • Lightly spray a 2 to 4 quart slow cooker with nonstick spray.
  • Pour the buttermilk into a small mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine the flour, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and kosher salt. Add the panko bread crumbs to a shallow dish.
  • Dip the chicken breast into the buttermilk and allow the excess to drip off. Dredge the filet into flour mixture before dipping it again into the buttermilk.
  • Press the chicken breast into the panko, pressing it gently into the breadcrumbs on each side to make sure they adhere.
  • Mist the chicken on both sides with nonstick cooking spray and place it in the slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on high 2-1/2 hours or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Remove the lid and allow to continue cooking for 10 minutes. Removing the lid helps the chicken get crunchier.
