Slowcooker Chicken Recipes please

Howdy All. I am looking for someone to share slowcooker recipes for chicken. I am particularly looking for curries etc using chicken breast, rather than chicken pieces. But all suggestions are welcome!

Chicken breasts will tend to dry out more in a crockpot. You might consider cutting the time of cooking back.

This sounds a bit strange (at least to me it did). I had never cooked with prunes before and quinoa is unfamiliar to some people but it turned out fantastic!

Moroccan Lemon Chicken with Prunes served over Quinoa
Rub 8 skinless chicken thighs (bone in) with 4 cloves of chopped garlic, lemon zest (from 1 lemon) and 1 tbsp oregano - let sit for at least 1 hour.
Mix 1.5 cups of pitted prunes with 1 cup of water, 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 tbsp honey - let sit for min 1 hour.
Put chicken in slow cooker, cover with 2 cups chicken stock cook on high for 2.5-3 hours or low for about 5 hours (until chicken is cooked). Mix in prune mixture, cook for 30min-1 hour to let flavours meld.
Cook quinoa in a similar way as to how you would cook rice. Rinse the quinoa, very lightly toast the quinoa in the bottom of a pot, add double the amount of warm liquid to quinoa (I used some of the liquid from the chicken mixed with water to cook the quinoa). Bring to a boil, lightly simmer (covered) for about 15 mins. Or you can also serve with couscous.

I totally agree. IMO chicken breasts are not the best candidates for crock pots or even long slow braises in the oven. They do dry out faster than dark meat, which is why, coq au vin, for example, traditionally uses dark meat.

I'd also recommend cutting back on cooking time.
